The pharaoh and the UFO

A needless foreword


I have read lots of parts of many novels (but couldn't read one through from beginning to end) which were supposed to fly the reader back to the summoned ancient Egypt and the circumstances and set up in the books were really far from reality. Instead - I am inclined to say - they became some weird fusion, a bizarre mixture of look-a-like Egyptian surroundings combined with twentieth century brain sickness infected with its post-christian duality and nineteenth century morals.

How we met Jesus

It happened to be a sunlit April afternoon and we were just taking a walk, enjoying ourselves in the sunshine, listening to the birds singing and generally being happy with the world. We didn't even notice the almost invisible lad sharing the same side of the pavement with us, approaching, supposed to pass us by and be forgotten just like so many others in a faceless crowd.
