eBook (PDF): $8.99
This unconventional and breath-taking tour de force does not have a “plot” in the ordinary sense, though one could describe it as a quest for the Star of Bethlehem. It reflects the... More > author’s fascination with old books; indeed, this volume comprises a straightforward record of the excavation of "historical" minutiae and “forgotten” manuscripts, which, when assembled WITH the manuscripts’ contents, IS the novel. It knits together a transcribed oral memoir, newspaper clippings, and myriad letters and journal pages from across two millennia, interspersed with the author’s own ironic “expert” observations. Those unearthed documents are presented in a series of prefaces, introductions, forewords, and afterwords that (with tongue firmly in cheek) challenge the structure of the conventional novel, while flirting with the crossover and steampunk genres, and including a cameo appearance by the Great Detective. If you like this sort of thing, you may find it “stunning” as did genre authority Gary Lovisi.< Less

More > template for the Indiana Jones character. Granted, Harrison Ford is much younger and snappier than Quatermain, who in the Haggard series is an old professional big game hunter and trader based out of South Africa.

In this adventure, our titular hero has lost his only son but is burning to get back into some action. He postpones his wedding and persuades some old mates to search for a lost (white) kingdom in East Africa. This action-packed story is well written and doesn't feel out of date at all.
