Professor Searches Egypt for Lost Pharaoh in Exciting New Sci-Fi Adventure

in Press Releases

PRESS RELEASE (7/22/2013) – In the “THE LOST PHARAOH – Sobek II,” Dr. Alberto Rodriguez risks everything to satisfy an obsession … a preoccupation that results from seeing the art museum’s special Tutankhamen exhibit.

A visit to Philadelphia Art Museum’s Tutankhamen display changes everything for Dr. Alberto Rodriguez.  A professor of archeology at Jess Hawkins University, he is familiar with the whole story of Howard Carter’s 1922 discovery of Tut’s tomb.  His own participations in excavations in New Mexico and Arizona were worthy endeavors but trivial when measured against Carter’s achievements.  Alberto tells himself that emulating Carter and trying to make an equally significant discovery is foolish.  He stifles the obsession, but it bursts to the surface when Alberto comes upon reports of another lost Pharaoh in Egypt.  Alberto looks for a way to respond.  Finally, throwing  all caution to the wind, he draws his closest friends into an undisclosed escapade that satisfies his ambition.  There will be hardships and danger, but so what?  When Egypt calls, it is time to act.

“The Lost Pharaoh – Sobek II” exceeds 80,000 words, runs more than 400 pages and has more than 80 illustrations.  It is available in both paperback ($15.99) and for Kindle ($6.99) at  Search on “Allen Pollens.”

This is author Allen Pollens’ fifth science fiction offering in two years and one of nine books he has published.  Pollens’ other sci-fi offerings include:  “ALTERNATIVE LIVES – To Sleep, Perchance to Dream … Another Life,” “CONJUROR – Living the Tale,” “CREATOR – Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Epic, Earth’s Human Behavior Confronted,” and “CREATOR II Human Behavior Explored.”
