USSR - Russia: Myths, Mysteries and Spying
Henry M. Quinlan, owner and publisher of Omni Publishing Company, has 40+ years of varied experience in the publishing of books, newsletters, DVDs and CDs and the organizing of seminars.
Between 1986 and 2018, Henry made more than 60 trips to the former Soviet Union and Russia. His most recent trip was to Moscow in 2018. The relationship started in 1987 when he signed an agreement with Vitaly Churkin to publish a book by him comparing living in Washington and Moscow. The book never happened but Vitaly and Henry kept in contact. Their last meeting was a dinner in August of 2016 when Vitaly was the Russian Ambassador to the UN. As a result of this dinner, Henry was interview by the FBI as part of the Russian interference investigation.
Henry lived in Moscow between 1988 and 1994 and during his time there traveled to most of the Soviet Union Republics and later independent Republics. He witnessed history when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
While engaged in a publishing venture in the former Soviet Union, Henry Quinlan was asked by President George H. Bush to organize the publishing of the children's book, "Make Way for Ducklings" in Russia in 1991, as well as the erection of the statutes of the ducklings in Moscow. He attended the State Dinner President Bush hosted in honor of President Gorbachev in August of 1991 in Moscow. Henry toured a secret USSR Space research center in Kirgizia with astronaut Wally Schirra where he lived a long held secret of the Soviet Space Agency.
He participated in the emergence of the new capitalism and dealt with the Russian Mafia in several memorable encounters.
Currently, Henry Quinlan is helping senior citizens self-publish their life’s stories as a memoir or autobiography and is publishing books under the Omni imprint.
