|Plot Summary of Squares, Triangles and Saucers|
Jason Deering grows up in a small town, gradually changing from the picked on fat kid to the carefree hippy. He moves out of his home into a cabin and starts his own under the table business which eventually forces him to leave town. He travels around the USA and the Carribean. In the Carribean he meets Naomi. She is a free spirit just as he is and they fall in love. Sadly, they must part when Naomi is offered a chance to advance herself by moving off the island.
Throughout a series of failed romances, Jason runs into Naomi from time to time, until one day he gets a heart wrenching phone call. Naomi is dying of cancer. Jason moves to take care of her in her final days, and just at the end of her life, Naomi tells him to go on a trip, relax, and find love. Jason goes to Nova Scotia, where he meets a charming woman that he falls in love with. He returns and Naomi passes on. He continues to correspond with his Canadian love until several deaths put him into a deep depression. By the time he recovers and moves to Nova Scotia to be with the woman he loves, he finds that she is engaged to another. He charters a plane after the wedding to fly back to the Carribean, scheduled to fly through the Bermuda Triangle. On his trip is his abducted by aliens who manage to convince him of the values of living before they return him to the planet.
