Suddenly, at the end of the twenty-first century, the world changes. The tycoons rule and name themselves kings. The times are rife with extravagance and decadence, extreme power and richness. The world is one big party. And there is chaos!
No one seems to wonder how this all came to be. No one seems to wonder what is actually happening. No one seems to care about anything anymore. Except for some odd outsiders. One of them is Oscar Man, the illegitimate son of tycoon Otto Man. Once he was a prince; then he became a pariah, a jester, with nothing to lose for himself and so much to win for the world…
In these turbulent times, the Second Renaissance, strange creatures come into power and try to subject every single human being to their will. They make the poor jester Oscar Man dance.

Koos Verkaik a ‘Dutchy’ with spunk and a heart of gold, and an inexhaustible drive and fathomless imagination, is one of the most productive authors of the moment.  We deem it our special privilege to work with an author of his caliber and have him on board.  Besides a fast-growing pile of novels in his specific genre: Mystery, Adventure, and Magic, he also writes children’s books. Well-known is his enchanting series of children’s books Alex and the Wolpertinger, published by LadyBee Publishing, Canada.

Koos wrote his first novel, a sci-fi, when he was only eighteen years old, during a weekend; it was published immediately—he was only sixteen when he wrote a series about a young space traveler who went in search of adventures on a far-away planet; it got published in the weekly newspaper (three pages each week). He published with big Dutch publishers as De Arbeiderspers in Amsterdam. With his books All-Father and Wolf Tears, he earned the name critics gave him of The Dutch Stephen King.

A fantastic and spectacular intrigue; Dutch Koos Verkaik can hold his own with the best foreign names in this field! A.P. magazine.

“I am a very fast worker; always have been, always sitting behind the keyboard and write! It is not a neurosis or so, it’s just that I have a lot to tell…” Haagse Courant.

The Dutch Stephen King, that’s the best compliment we can give horror writer Koos Verkaik. With his novels he fills a gap in the market – he is writing original fantasy and horror. Verkaik has a personal, original style! Aktueel.

Verkaik is always flirting with the paranormal. The tight, balanced style of his works give away his great craftsmanship. Koos Verkaik is called the Dutch Stephen King. Where productivity is concerned, this is right, but where his work is concerned I think that Koos is just himself and that is quite a lot! Penthouse.

Koos Verkaik gives a new substance to the literary thriller! The new book of Koos Verkaik is a well-constructed thriller with an original storyline wherein cleverly is made use of horror elements. But Koos Verkaik has more to offer than just a thrilling story. Weaving mythical and psychological elements in it, in a very subtle way, he makes novels with many mentions and gives a new substance to the literary thriller. And that is a remarkable performance for an author who writes through the years in order to make a living, publishing countless novels and comics. De Persunie, Holland, De Standaard, Belgium.

“I knew I would become a writer when I was only six years old,” tells Koos Verkaik. “I have always been working on stories.”And so it went – he wrote during his high school years, walked away from home and lived by his pen. He worked for countless publishers and wrote what they asked for: children’s books, novels, comics, scripts, name it. He has become a well-known fantasy writer; one of the best! Aktueel.

“Heavenly Vision” by Koos Verkaik

KOOS VERKAIK HeavenlyVision Cover out Evolutionary Publishing




Nothing is what it seems, in this new, exciting Koos Verkaik novel…

It starts with the finding of an old manuscript hidden in an old atlas of the Cape of Good Hope, around the year 1745.

“Allart Vroom climbed down from the ship, and we stood ready to catch him,” wrote Captain Adriaen Kalf. “His clothes, his flesh, his bones pulverized in our hands. He formed a small heap of powder at our feet. Please, believe me—it is not, like someone suggested, the contents of broken hourglasses.”

Jan Glas, an Amsterdam publicist, reads about a machine that could cause the end of the entire world! Of course, he wants to find out the truth about the remarkable manuscript!

A long journey takes him to England and the USA.

A peculiar man crosses his path – Wesley Dunn, Raso Preacher, Center of the Heavenly Vision, Franks Knight, Florida, USA.

This man says that the world will be destroyed by ‘the Machine of Colton’, which is also mentioned in the manuscript that Jan found! Only a few people will survive – the true followers of the odd Mr. Wesley Dunn, and the Raso way of life!

Murder, mystery, and intrigue will keep the reader guessing as to what is going on. Is the world coming to an end, and if so, who will survive?

Story Overview

Peter Jonker has special gifts at his disposal. As a provoked, frightened child, he has come under the spell of master painter Poolman and his evocative, terrifying canvases. Poolman has spun gory tales about Wodan, god of the Germanic tribes, and the fearless Scandinavian berserkers. And now it seems Peter has seen the magic truth behind those sagas. In his agony, he discovers unknown talents, and soon it is said he has the possession of immortal powers! Haunted by the fantasies of his youth, the adult Peter is going downhill, and in his vulnerable state strangers intervene trying to reach their own dubious goals by taking advantage of him.

Wodan is looking for him and wants him to join the Army of the Dead – Berserkers who carry death and destruction… Peter’s life becomes a choking nightmare. Is he responsible for the death of four people, or being set up by unknown forces? Brought under hypnosis, the horrible truth may come out… Koos Verkaik, born in Bolnes, near Rotterdam, is a prolific Dutch author of fantasy, science fiction and horror – a master at creating sensational work full of magic, horror, mystery, and adventure! At the age of 16, Koos published the comic Scotty Clay in weekly Sjors, four pages every week. At 18, he wrote his first science fiction thriller, ADOLAR, during one weekend. He now he has over sixty titles in publication.

After meeting Bill Thompson, editor of both Stephen King and John Grisham, in the USA, Thompson became very enthusiastic about the work of Verkaik, working together with Koos on several manuscripts. Sarah Book Publishing is proud to be chosen to publish Verkaik’s All-Father!

HIM (After the USO Crash) 

How apt that this work should now become a movie at this time as the world is on the brink of meeting our distant cousins from other galaxies.   

HIM (After the UFO Crash) by Koos Verkaik


Title of the Book:  HIM, after the UFO Crash)

Author:  Koos Verkaik

Genre: Urban Fantasy Novel, 86.868 words 

Publisher:  Righter’s Mill Publishing




To begin with, prepare yourself to commit to the book because it is not going to be an easy and smooth reading experience for some, as the book deals with UFO technology and ETs, and the approach is highly scientific and not the comic book type so favored by studios like MARVEL.   This story, especially now in the light of NASA’s new discoveries that are being made every day as my SPACE subscription tells me in my personalized taskbar, this subject has been dealt with from a little more comprehensive approach, which also testifies to the Author’s personal research done on the topic, and hence not all readers may be able to anticipate diving into the book with the ease of reading an Archie comic type of work, or plain romance novel.  But for those who persevere and do a little research along the way to gain a smidgen more insight into some technical information to back up this concept, (information you will find online), will find it an entirely refreshing. but above all a most exciting reading experience they will never forget.


ABOUT – ” HIM”  (After the UFO Crash)

Arthur Croft is a Rocket engineer. He sends a rocket up into space hoping to find extraterrestrial beings. But then the unexpected happens, he commits suicide. Jasper Frost, an American learns how to control synchronicity. A Swiss doctor asks Jasper to befriend Francis Lockhart, a wealthy American. Jasper agrees, and soon he is about to learn all about Arthur, aliens and his life will never be the same again.


Nicole Ginella, his secretary, knows all about the fascination held for the great Arthur Croft and numerous other professional men and women who deal with space travel: they strongly believe that UFO’s are a reality. Together with CIA personnel and military and scientific professionals from the various government divisions, they form a strong and cohesive collaborative organization that will do everything they can to capture a UFO.


After the funeral of Arthur Croft, Nicole goes to Miami Beach.   A CIA agent, Wilbur Elliott, finds her there and has lots of questions for her.


In the meanwhile in Paris.

Jasper Froch is an American hippie, traveling through Europe. He is a pickpocket and an adventurer but has no goal in his life.   Then he meets Antoine Faverel, a clochard.  The clochard finds out that Jasper Froch has an extraordinary talent: without realizing it, he makes use of synchronicity.  One of my favorite reads by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, in fact, gave this label to this very phenomenon, this Novel is dealing with and is an analytical concept Jung deals within many of his works.

The clochard explains: “First I’ll tell you about synchronicity. It literally means simultaneity. It is an intriguing phenomenon! It is a marvelous coincidence. Two events that apparently have nothing to do with each other and of which the one is absolutely not the result of the other, gives one food for thought! Many people see it as an important warning or a sign. It was the famous Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung who came up with the term synchronicity and studied the phenomena profoundly. Synchronicity is unexplainable.


My opinion of this work:

The thrilling and very ‘today’ Novel HIM (After the UFO Crash) by Koos Verkaik, is a book that you’ll read and then you’ll wonder did you really read what you did?  Could it be possible?  You will never forget it.   Well, today it is a reality in my view as a staunch adherent supporter of ET and UFO technology.


Before you dive into the book though, ensure you have a couple of hours to while away as it will be hard to pull yourself away from this page-turner,  be sure your seat belt is hugging you nice and tight.  Then hold on fiercely because you’re about to go on a pure adrenalin-driven roller coaster ride of your life.  From the first page to the final last page of this wonderful book, you will have become a participating entity yourself as you gradually lose yourself and your ‘earthly status’, and allow yourself to merge within this amazing mind-boggling journey, and bigger than life Novel.  HIM contracted by a US film company is under close scrutiny as I speak, as a strong contender for one of the most exciting stories that has to date come out of Holland.   You GO koos!!! :)😊

All Father  by Koos Verkaik

Peter Jonker has special magical gifts. He is told of the horrifying tales of Wodan, God of the Germanic tribes and Scandinavian Berserkers. Then he finds out he has immortal powers, something some would like to take advantage of. Wodan is on the hunt for him to join his evil army, the Berserkers who bring destruction and death. Soon he is not sure what is truth, or merely a horrible dream from which he would soon wake up, or is he really responsible for the death of people? Peter decides to find out by being hypnotized, and soon his world as he knows it is about to change.

Peter is very likable, he wants to do what is right and is faced with challenges. He encounters good and bad people/events. The story moves at a steady pace with attention to details, pulling you into this fantastic magical thrilling story. The plot is original with the perfect balance of drama, suspense, action, and adventure. A definite five-star read. I highly recommend to young/adult as well as adult lovers of action/adventure/magic.

Format: Paperback

In true Koos Verkaik fashion, his febrile mind weaves a story of the Gods who inhabited the ancient world and find their way back through the surrealistic paintings of a modern Dutch artist.
A small boy, Peter Jonkers, who was left with the artist Poolman, listens to his stories and is drawn into his paintings until the berserkers inhabit his world. He possesses a unique gift. What he writes down will happen. Not with the power of foresight. Even he cannot understand it.  As a grown man this gift brings him fame and fortune in the business world. For some inexplicable reason, his power wanes and he is in danger of losing everything.  Murders take place and he has written down the names of 4 victims. Is he, in fact, the murderer?
Or is the All-father with his army of the dead directing other receptors?
Buy the book and find out. You are in for the ride of your life.

” I could easily see some of his work next to greats such as Stephen King, or Dean Koontz.”

Fanatic Review’s sat down with Koos Verkaik to learn more about him, this is what we learned.

15 Questions about you, and your work (s).

1.) What would you say inspired you to write your story?
I wrote All-Father in Dutch, it was first published by De Arbeiderspers in Amsterdam. I read a lot about history and love the old stories about the Celtic and Germanic tribes. In All-Father we learn how Woden (Odin, All-Father) rides the sky with his Army of the Death and about Berserkers who fear steel nor blood. (We still talk about going berserk!).
2.) Are some of the details rendered in your story from real-life situations?
Yes, it enacts in The Netherlands of the seventies. With real people in a recognizable setting. The story is about a little boy who becomes so afraid of the horrible stories a Rembrandt-like painter tells him about Woden and berserkers, that he almost dies… but then he finds out that he has special powers and he is going to use them.
3.) At what age did you begin writing? When did you know you would make writing a career path?
I started writing at the age of seven and never stopped. I still have a pile of notebooks from my youth, full of stories. I knew I would become a writer when I was about twelve.
4.) Who is your favorite character in your book(s)?
I have no favorite characters. Mostly I create them during the writing process and suddenly I know everything about their specific character. It is great to be able to bring the most peculiars persons together in a novel!
5.) How long did it take you to write your first novel?
I am so happy that you ask me this. My first novel was a sci-fi of 160 pages and I wrote it during a long weekend when I was only 18 years old. It was published immediately and I was very proud when I saw it in the window of a bookshop.
6.) Where can we find your work(s)?
I have published about 60 different titles in the Netherlands and they are available in the bookshops and on the internet. You can find my books in English on the internet:http://www.amazon.com/Koos-Verkaik/e/B001JXJGMA,

The reprint for All-Father is published by Koos’ new publisher at Righters Mill Publishing Division of Three Corners Entertainment Group.  


Suspense-filled mystery that is a fast reading book…captivating…this intriguing book kept my attention & was fascinating.

“Alex and The Wolpertinger” by Koos Verkaik

(More Wolpertinger Volumes recently published will be added this week)


Alex and his friends, Shabby Tabby Chum and Ludo the wolpertinger are on a mission to save the magician Halo. Halo is being held prisoner by Prince Ruff Rumble. The giant prince wants the magician to make gold for him. Halo’s magic books are now unreadable after falling into the lake but he couldn’t have made the gold even if his books hadn’t gotten wet. The prince doesn’t know that, and Alex’s real mission is to find a magician that can help Halo and get him set free.
Excerpt: Halo put me under a spell that shrank me till I was just as little as Chum the old tomcat. And suddenly I was able to speak the language of the animals! On the back of the fat cat, I traveled to an oak wood. On the way, I met two friends, William Wing the miller and Alfred Axe the woodcutter. With their help, I reached the tallest oak of the wood. It was there that I first met Ludo the wolpertinger. He had blue fur and a lanky figure. His feet were very, very big. When I asked the wolpertinger how we could reach the Downhills, he said: “You have to believe in the Downhills. If you don’t believe in them, then you will bump your head on the trunk of the oak tree. If you do believe in them, then you will walk straight through it, and you will be where you want to be.”
He was right! Chum and I believed in the Downhills, walked right into the oak, stepped right through the bark, and ended up in a tunnel. There we reached a mysterious land and saw a big, red sun in the sky.

“I’ve loved illustrated children’s chapter books since I was a young sprite. Their usually epic stories that carry with you a lifetime of happy memories. Especially, those that remind me of warm nights nestled by the fire, listening to Hans Christian Anderson cassette tapes on the radio in the living room. While reading, I reminisced back to how truly remarkable those stories were, and of how they caught and easily kept my attention. Mr. Verkaik has done it again! This time it came in the guise of a children’s book. I fell in love with this timeless story, and so will you.”

Koos Verkaik 

From the Reviewer About the book:

“Mr. Verkaik paints a vivid portrait of the life of Alex, a boy from the Alps, who works in the land of the Giant Clover King. Alex is sent to help a magician and finds a world of adventure before him. Alex meets Ludo the Wolpertinger, and the two embark on a creative trek filled with shrinking, talking animals, and giants beyond measure!

I rather enjoyed the tempo of this short, yet remarkably expansive story. I will definitely be getting this in paperback for my daughter to read when she is old enough. It has such colorful illustrations, and engaging artwork, that will easily keep your child entertained. The best part about this book is that it’s really for all ages. It reads like an adventure, one that any age can get behind. Five stars Mr. Verkaik. Truly an adventurous read!”
