“Gods, Graves and Scholars”.

One of my followers asked me recently what are my favorite authors. I was unable to answer her question. I read books of thousands of authors written in different countries, in different times, in different genres. It’s impossible for me to choose 10-20 favorite writers.

It is written as a novel (or as a thriller).
Make yourself a gift by reading this wonderful book.
