Preview of ‘Mummies around the World’ now available

Mummies_around_the_World

A Google Books preview of my mummy encyclopedia is now available. At least from my end — and I know these previews tend to shift and alter sometimes — it shows the full table of contents (two of them, actually, one alphabetical and the other topically organized), the full preface and introduction, portions of the master timeline of mummies throughout history, and a few snippets of the book’s A-Z entries. For those of you who have been following my updates about this project over the past couple of years, here’s a glimpse of the final result.

The book is scheduled for publication on November 30. You can order it from the publisher or from all of the usual retail suspects (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.). You’ll probably also find it in a library near you. And remember, you can view a full list of the book’s contributors with brief bios here.

  1. Congrats. I have Dark Awakenings and am looking forward to your other books. I’ll be ordering this for xmas.

  2. the dude on the cover of the book is a mummified monk and each little bodhisattva is a different syllable of the mantra etc… and they are all on a string and pass through empty shell to go to various parties, and we feel bad for the one on the end of the string who can pass out more than one, because their identity is shattered

  3. the guy on the cover of the book is like the Kitsune or 9 tailed fox. a being without a rational contained ego mind who has managed to grow 9 different tails, etc… each one separate, unique, but apart. the haunted self.

  4. Trust me experiment with the idea. Is a 9 tailed fox an ego-self with 9 of its own tails, or is it a nothingness , void, haunted by 9 souls. and which one visually is more effective. and emotionally what does it look like.
