Thomas Burnett Swann was a brilliant fantasy writer who died in 1976. He wrote primarily about the ancient Greek and Roman world, blending myth with romance and adventure. A reviewer in the Village Voice sums his work up well: "Swann's neo-romantic fantasies of the past are unique. He uses the stuff of myth but with twists and inventions of his own."
Swann takes the listener to Ancient Egypt, the Egypt of Pharoahs and beast-headed gods, beyond whose borders lay the jungles and kingdoms of whisper and legend. This is the story of a young Pharoah, of his journey beyond those mystical borders, of his meeting with ghosts, gods, and the marvelous minikins. It is a Swann novel to rank with How Are the Mighty Fallen and Green Phoenix in the esteem of fantasy fiction readers...
