G.W. Dahlquist has two claims to fame prior to writing The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. Firstly, he is the only individual to bring a private prosecution against NASA for allegedly faking material brought back from the moon (he claimed - unsuccessfully - that several pounds of 'moon rocks' had been lifted from his backyard in Tampa, Florida). Secondly, that the script for the 1978 film Capricorn One - a fictional film about faking a trip to Mars - is based on a documentary he was making regarding his own allegations of a full-blown cover up of the so-called 'faked moon landings'. Filmed footage and research material confiscated by Dahlquist's landlady in lieu of unpaid rent was purchased at a car boot sale in Orlando in 1976 by executives of Warner Brothers. The film was rushed into production, but Dahlquist claims never to have received a dime of the proceeds.
