About Paul Morrison

Being a historian and museologist since the late sixties, he became specialized in warship and Marine Corps history and development, helping to organize, display and preserve naval history for about four decades, but parallel studies and interests led him to archaeological research of great civilizations of different eras. He did part time writing for more than thirty years and his books cover a wide range of subjects from historical to science fiction, ghost and detective stories and many other genres. The decision to write The Giza Trilogy demanded a great amount of research and time and he finally retired from his work in the shipping industry and the museum to dedicate to write full time.
He revised and republished his series of Collected Stories, wrote and published his first trilogy, and a series called Cooking with the Pharaohs. He opened Kemetpharaonics Publishing House and he also decided to invest in the e-book market publishing all his books in e-book format.
The Sand God – A Novel of Ancient Egypt and The Time Traveller Sequel to The Time Machine by H. G. Wells both published in 2013 right after the trilogy.
Now he is revising the companion book of The Giza Trilogy – Eternal Egypt and closing the first book of the Ancient Americas Series – Bonampak
His interest in comic book art led him to launch the ozecomics magazine and site, and his love for art resulted in the launching of the @rtdimension magazine and site not for fun or as a hobby, but as a genuine activity that fulfils his necessity to learn and share knowledge.

Review on The Sand God – A novel from Ancient Egypt
Setting Place: Ancient Egypt
Setting Time: 1574 BC /1478 BC
Main Characters: Hori, The Sand God, Pharaoh Seqenenre Tao, Ahmose, Pharaoh Kamose, Neferkare, General Merneptah, Osiris the boy, Intef, Queen Aahotep
Summary of the Story
This is a time of turmoil in the history of Ancient Egypt. The struggle to expel the invaders leads the Pharaoh and the people to think about a new God as they believe the old gods have abandoned them.
The Review
Everybody dreams of achieving something and due to faith or this hope that feeds the religious soul, an idea can become a dangerous weapon, causing the mind to accept the most bizarre beliefs in order to achieve a goal. The strange and complex behaviour of man facing the loss and the anguish of oppression leads to chaos but can also buy some victories. All the events in the story are carefully planned to show the struggle behind the war and the constant fight against Egypt’s enemy. The author leads us to think of all these values and constantly surprises the reader whether he or she sides with Hori, with Neferkare or is simply curious about the fate of Egypt.
