Did Nostradamus predict the end of the world in 2012? Did he see climate change and Global
Warming? Armageddon? The Antichrist? The 7/7 London attack and the 9/11 New York attack? JFK’s
assassination? Hitler’s rise to power and World War II? Airplanes? Computers? His own death? Read
James D. Dilworth’s Selected Oracles of Nostradamus and decide for yourself if Nostradamus did.
While most other translations of Nostradamus have included pages and pages of the translator’s
commentary and explanation of the original words of the 16th century prophet, James Dilworth’s
does not. “I think people can make up their own minds about Nostradamus and what he wrote. Let
the prophecies of Nostradamus speak for themselves.” And they do, in The Selected Oracles of
Nostradamus translated by James D. Dilworth and published by Truckee River Books. With the
words of Nostradamus written in clear and plain English, the general public can read and decide for
themselves if the prophecies of Nostradamus are just strange poetry or if they really tell the future.
James D. Dilworth has been involved in many artistic and creative endeavors
throughout his life. James has a Black Belt in Kenpo Karate, attended
the University of Nevada, Reno, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in
English Literature and a Master’s Degree in Education from Sierra Nevada
College, and a Doktorate of the Forbidden Sciences from the
Church of the SubGenius. He currently teaches English and Drama in
Public Schools and also works as a freelance writer, editor, and tutor.
Music is his first love and he sings and plays the Alto, Soprano and Tenor
Saxophones, Guitar, Piano and Flute. James is a writer of poetry, translations
of French poetry and prose, short stories, essays, novels, screenplays
and stage plays and has been published in several publications and
publishes a literary ‘zine called Non- Creative Garbage. James has been

has written directed, and produced his own films, which have entered
competitions and have been chosen as final selections. As a visual
artist, James has staged performance art exhibitions at the NADAdada
