Meet the "Gods of Egypt" before the TV series


 
Why wait for the series (even though I can hardly wait)?



Meet Isis

Meet Hathor in a tale within the novel. There's even a character called 'Bek' (name of the thief in the upcoming series)
Meet Osiris - in a form you may never forget

You can also meet Ra and Hathor in a separate publication as a novella. Hathor is also the focus of The Hathor Holocaust novel

A cardinal, a mufti and a rabbi walk into a hotel... conspiracy Egypt thriller 'The God Dig'


A cardinal, a mufti and a rabbi went into a hotel.
It sounded like the beginning of a joke rather than an ambush, Anson thought as he was shown into the dimness of a curtained meeting room inside the Cairo Mena House Hotel at the foot of the pyramids.
But it was no joke.
There they were, ranged like an interview panel behind a long table inside a hotel meeting room and the room was as devoid of levity as it was of sunlight and if there were any floating motes of good humour in the air they were sucked away by the three unsmiling emissaries.
One came from the Vatican, one from Cairo’s Islamic University and the other from Jerusalem, representing all three book-based religions.
What kind of religious crisis had forced such ecumenism?
“Thank you for coming. Please sit down Mr Hunter and hear us out.”
The cardinal, a tall cathedral of a man, spoke first, making a fine steeple of his fingers.
He was the President of the Vatican Committee for Historical Science. “We represent the faith of more than half of the world’s population, 3.8 billion people, the most volatile of them based in the Middle East, as you would know. And here is something else you know – history that has a familiar ring in this age of Egyptian protests and rioting. In A.D. 391, the Alexandrian bishop Theophilus, who dedicated himself to stamping out heresy and idolatry, found himself at the head of a riot of Christians who set fire to the temple of Serapis and its library. Thousand of scrolls and parchments were burnt, among them what is said to be the records of the secret ancient origins of today’s faith religions and the belief in a life to come. In other words, so-called proof that all Abrahamic faiths and ideas about a Judgement Day and an afterlife began in ancient Egypt.”
That shook Anson.
He swept the three in a glance.
He was no stranger to such ideas, but he never expected to hear an acknowledgement of them come from the lips of a Prince of the Church, especially with the tacit assent of Jewish and Islamic leaders sitting beside him.
The wiry South African-born rabbi, spoke next.
“Worryingly, it now seems that some of this so-called evidence survived the ancient destruction and clues to its location have turned up in the chaos and looting of the Egyptian revolution. A search for it is now underway, as you know. It is the reason why you are here in Egypt.”
“Do you expect the evidence to be legitimate?” Anson said.
“By no means,” the cardinal said. “A diabolical trick. If scripture is spirit-breathed, then this is the breath of evil.”
“Of Shaitaan himself,” the Islamic leader said.
“Then why be afraid of it?” Anson said.
The mufti, a square man with a square beard to match, said in a reasoned tone:
“We must always remember that others may not have our strength. They need to be protected. This so-called evidence would be like a weapon of mass destruction to their faith.”
The mufti’s presence among the religious dignitaries surprised Anson most of all. Yes, the Islamic religion, as much as Christianity and Judaism, revered the patriarch Abraham as its spiritual father, he reasoned, but weren’t Muslim believers a bit too radicalized to be deflected by any new historical revelation? Unless of course Islam had been spooked by the secular backlash that had struck against the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt’s Revolution.
“And what do you want from me..?”

"Particularly beautiful" - the Hathor tale first appeared in 'The Smiting Texts' archaeology thriller

“This tale of an ancient hunter's fate to recapture the goddess of devastation in order to save Egypt is particularly beautiful.” THE TRUTH ABOUT BOOKS


This story first appeared as a tale within a novel in the archaeological adventure thriller ‘The Smiting Texts’, but is released here in a separate edition for lovers of mythology and ancient romance.  

Hathor-Sekhmet was the goddess with two faces, one, Hathor, the Sweet One, goddess of sexual love, joy, music and intoxication, the other, Hathor-Sekhmet, the terrible lioness of annihilation, sent by Ra to destroy humankind for their rebelliousness.
In her marauding stage they called her The Confused One in the Night.
Were there times when Hathor slipped from one state to another? One phase, goddess of love, shining in her beauty, and the next a wild and dreadful lioness of destruction? What would it have been like to come across Hathor, the young woman, and not know that she hid another side?
