The Memphis Cycle
The great city of Memphis served as the northern capital of Egypt for millennia. The earliest history of the Pharaohs began in Memphis. The great Pyramids cluster to its west. Armies marched from Memphis, navies sailed from its port. Even at the very end of its history, as a shadow of its former glory, Egypt could not be conquered until Memphis fell. The Nile changed its course, as rivers will, and the grand old city disappeared into the marshes, its stones taken to be used in newer sites.
The Memphis Cycle presents the stories of the people who became a part of Memphis. Kings, priests, princes, commoners move through these stories, and in following the tales you follow the city's history. I am glad to see that great city emerging. It has been a welcoming presence in my stories.
I also have two stories in the works, to be published within a year (click the titles for their pages):
Kadesh (after Mourningtide, and before Pharaoh's son)
The Thirty Cubit Crocodile (a fable)
