Event Summary

Ancient Egypt is known as ‘The Mother and Father of All Things.’ Somerset author Dr. Justin Newland will be talking about what this means and how it still impacts our lives today.

The talk is at Exeter St. Thomas Library from 7.30 – 9.00 p.m. on Thursday 8th November and is part of the 2018 Exeter Literary Festival.

Justin is the author of ‘The Genes of Isis’, an epic fantasy and supernatural thriller set under Ancient Egyptian skies. The story is a weave of two threads: the Ancient Egyptian myth of Isis and Osiris and the story of the flood in the Book of Genesis.

Tickets cost £2.00. To book, telephone 01392 252 783.

Justin’s second novel, The Old Dragon’s Head, a historical fantasy set in Old China, is also out now. His work in progress is a novel set in Frederick the Great’s Prussia during the Enlightenment.

His stories add a touch of the supernatural to history and deal with the existential themes of war, religion, evolution and the human’s place in the universe.

He lives with his partner in plain sight of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, England.
