What is the 'authentic Egypt feeling' for fiction readers?


“Roy Lester Pond joins my favourite Egypt fiction authors like Christian Jacq” – Goodreads.

THE ALLURE...

The allure of choking gold, cruel riches and seductively beautiful art, the radiance of eternity, the shiver of the unknown, of mystery, myth and mummies, sphinxes with secrets, death, enigmatic glyphs, magic and curses 



THE DREAM...

The prospect of discovery revealed in dust-shredded flashlight beams inside structures of crushing awe, shadowy tombs, pyramids, monumental shrines with towering stone gods, goddesses and ingenious traps for the unwise.


THE SENSE OF IMAGINATIVE FREEDOM...

The permission, at least for a few days or hours, to believe in the impossible because Egypt is more than a place, it’s a concept.
