Steve Alten will be on Coast 2 Coast with George Noory


Steve Alten is the best-selling author of fifteen novels, including the MEG series and the DOMAIN series, about the Mayan doomsday calendar. In the first half, he discussed his writing career, cryptozoological creatures like the Loch Ness monster, and his battle with cancer and Parkinson's disease along with new protocols to treat them. His MEG series of novels (now available as the seven-volume collector's edition, Legacy) explores the idea that a monstrous prehistoric shark, the megalodon, still swims deep in the Mariana Trench. In 2018, the motion picture The MEG opened in theaters and became a #1 blockbuster at the box office, both foreign and domestic, grossing over $560 million, though it was a long journey to get it to the screen. The sequel MEG-2: The TRENCH opens in theaters this summer on August 4.

Alten, who has also written novels about the Loch Ness monster, has postulated that the creature is actually a giant eel, some 35 to 45 feet across, which migrated across the Atlantic Ocean from the Sargasso Sea but became trapped in the Loch and continued to grow in size. Alten also addressed his long-term medical struggles and said that certain natural herbal extracts can be helpful for combating tremors from Parkinson's. Regarding cancer, he is a strong advocate for the GC Protocol, developed by Dr. John Grinstein, a biochemist whose area of expertise has focused on the medicinal properties found in certain organic fruits and vegetables.
