Tutankhamun the Exodus Conspiracy: The Truth Behin&hellip by Andrew Collins
The authors were neglectful in there basic research. I believe in the possibility of a missing papyrus. Interestingly enough an italian archeologist discovered that a space often used by the Egyptians to hold the book of the dead in one of the ka/guardian statues had been found to have been recenlty resealed, ie from the time of Carter's entry and the space had been filled with rubble from the tomb. Also Carter's journals interestingly refer to a papyrus being sold to Lythgoe, the man from the Metroplitain musuem during that time. As to possible poisoning of Mace and Carnarvon, Carter also notes in his journal that near the end of the first season the tomb was plagued by a type of insect… Read more
The Starlost - The Complete Series (1973) [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Keir Dullea
This Canadian made sci fi series Starring Keir Dullea was a favourite of mine in the 1970's. Author Harlan Ellison wrote the original screenplay but would only allow his alias Corwainer Bird to appear in the credits after withdrawing from the project.. Plagued by budgetary and technical difficulties this tv series still managed to have many famous Canadian and US actors playing roles. Sadly it only went on for two seasons. Rumours abound about the story being turned into a movie. Sony Pictures was apparently the last to option the film rights but there has been no word since. With the 2 extras, a short making of piece starring Dullea and Douglas Trumbu of Silent Running fame and a 16mm shot… Read more
Cast in Sorrow by Michelle Sagara
Cast in Sorrow by Michelle Sagara
5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, Sept. 7 2013
Kaylin Neya has reached the West March where she is to be the harmoniste at a Barrani ritual.Most of the Barrani want to see her dead including as a means to obtain the familiar which conveniently rides on her shoulder.And for Kaylin that familiar could equally be a threat. Michelle Sagara weaves a multilayered story which combines many threads within the Elantra series. It is an excellent addition to that series. I would suggest however that first time readers start with Cast in Shadow and work their way through the series. Although it is a stand alone story, the subtleties of the characters are more appreciated if you know their whole back story so far. A good read.
