"Favourite" Egypt fiction... "A furious pace keeps the reader engrossed."

Amazon Kindle

"Roy Lester Pond joins my favourite Ancient Egypt authors like Christian Jacq". The Ra Virus ****stars Goodreads


"THE RA VIRUS" - Goodreads reader review:

"This is a novella set in Ancient Egypt with a twist. Lucas Burrows is an epidemiologist who is is in Modern Day Egypt assisting an archaeological team. Lucas is at the archaeological site along with his girl friend, a well known Egyptologist Giulietta.

While exploring the site, Lucas disappears through a trapdoor and is presumed lost. But Lucas is mysteriously transported to the same site, now in Ancient Egypt is a bit of going through a temporal warp or simply, time travel. If you cannot handle this, go no further and seek other genre of books.

If you are reading this, I presume you can handle a little bit of SciFi and give the author some literary leeway.

One day, a modern day message appears at the dig site apparently from ancient times. The message warns of an ancient pathogen likely to create havoc in modern times as well. There is a possibility that the message was from Lucas trying to warn folks in the modern day.

This novel is all about Lucas's adventure in ancient Egypt. The author maintains a furious pace all through... keeping the reader engrossed. Very readable... Roy Lester Pond joins my list of favorite authors dealing with Ancient Egypt like Christian Jacq."

THEY INTERCEPTED him as he came out of Baltimore-Washington Airport



THEY INTERCEPTED him as he came out of Baltimore-Washington Airport, two men wearing suits and an air of officialdom like a brisk cologne.
“Mr Anson Hunter, the British Egyptologist?” 

“SORRY, ANSON. Your search for the stela ends here!”



The voice of the woman funnelled down the underground passage, the echoes fluttering off the stone like startled bats.Anson Hunter, alternative Egyptologist and theorist, felt a chill as the words reached his ears. It was caused as much by the emotional separation in her voice as by its distance. Her voice was startlingly removed. It was also hard and cold. A few minutes earlier she had been a companionable presence at his shoulder. Now this. She had deserted him, stealing back up the ramp of the passage. Why?

THE IBIS APOCALYPSE - Amazon Kindle 

Egyptian tour guides will tell you that it’s good luck to walk in a complete circle around the Step Pyramid of Saqqara.





It’s even luckier if you’re able to run, Anson Hunter thought after two bullets in quick succession spat dust from the ground at his feet. The independent Egyptologist felt his skin tingling in shock like the effects of a close lightning strike.

THE GOD DIG Amazon Kindle 

The archaeologist Anson Hunter plummeted, tumbling uncontrollably into darkness.


Was it a tomb shaft he was plunging down, he thought, feeling the darkness rip past his body?
Yet instead of sliding walls of stone, he flew down a pit of glowing green perspective lines that converged at the point of infinity.
He saw a woman, depicted in graphic green mesh-lines of light, watching him drop.
The strands of her hair were like strings of binary computer code, a rainfall of green ones and zeroes and her Egyptian eyes were bright points of light.
When he hit bottom, a place where the darkness coalesced into crushing density, even his mind went dark,
After an eternity, he opened his eyes.
He was seeing stars.
But they were not stars in a night sky, instead they were leopard skin spots on a tight body gown worn by the ancient Egyptian goddess Seshat, Mistress of Knowledge. The spots transformed into stars and then into electronic green spangles against a darker green sky and in her headband appeared a crowning star with seven brilliant points and a downturned crescent above it.
He was either dead or had entered her realm.
Seshat spoke in a thrilling whisper that made his body quiver. It was the voice of the infinite, yet was as gentle and fluttering in his ears as a breeze



A female mummy from ancient Egypt lay outstretched inside a hospital scanning machine.

The British Museum had brought the mummy to St. Thomas’ Hospital for a non-invasive examination of the body beneath its wrappings.
“We’ll begin by doing the head and neck in two millimetre slices. I’m just relieved that nobody will have to give this patient the bad news that she’s terminal.”
The radiologist had made the joke to bridge the jarring disconnect between ancient death, wrapped up in magical spells, and the modern day machinery of medical imaging. 
The radiation scan - at a dose lethal for the living - blasted through the linen windings. It was like a penetration of sunlight warming the bones after the ache of the desert night.
