Responding to the upsurge in interest in "the Maya prophecies," Prof. Mark Van Stone has spent the last several years researching What the Ancient Maya Actually Said about 2012. The result is a full-color, 170-page book, *2012 - Science and Prophecy of the Ancient Maya*, based entirely on science, archaeology and Precolumbian art. Starting as a physicist, working in the University of New Hampshire's Space Science Center, Van Stone pursued a career in art, and eventually earned his Ph.D. in Maya Hieroglyphs under the legendary Linda Schele and David Stuart. Dr. Van Stone is also co-author, with Michael Coe, of *Reading the Maya Glyphs* (2001), the leading book on deciphering Maya inscriptions.
