    Well I consider ALL of his books fictional but that's another story :-)

    A while back I read about a Novel that I understood was published by WT and there was some sort of connection with Da judge.

    I remember I found it online and was going to look through it but never got the chance.

    Now I can't find it and for the life of me I can't remember the name of it or the author.

    Unfortunately, Google isn't helping.

    It was about life before the flood.

    Anyone able to help?

    Thanks in advance

    The book is called "Angels and Women" and I wrote about my experience when first running into this book in the Bethel library in this posting:

    Thanks Brock.

    I think your post is the one I was thinking of.

    Don't know why I copuldn't find it.

    There has been a lot posted about that book. The WT didn’t publish it directly, but obviously they had a role in it. It was advertised in the Golden Age. In the early sixties bible studies were recommended to read it. My mom read it and spoke about it for years. In my opinion the spiritism claims are overblown. It’s just early science fiction.

    A post here from a few years ago stated that GB member Sam Herd positively referred to this book in a talk he gave. There were two links to that talk but they've now died.

    Too bad. The past intellectual poster and researcher here Leolaia posted more info about this book on the OP too.

    I've read it. Interesting book. Written by a non-Witness but apparently it appealed to Russell or so it's claimed. It's a view of what the antediluvian world was like.

    ... just an observation, but all novels are fictional.
