About Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison has been a writer for most of his life. “I cannot remember a time when I was not writing, even when I was five or six years old. I grew up on books such as Treasure Island, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Time Machine — these and the many other books that I read in my early years fed my imagination, a voracious imagination transporting me to faraway places, other worlds and to other times in both the recent and more distant past...” Many of these worlds and places are visited in the novels and short story collections he has written.
Besides a love for fiction, Paul also reads widely on ancient history and archaeology. “I am particularly interested in Ancient Egypt, mainly Old Kingdom Egypt during the age of the pyramid builders. I was always intrigued as to how the pyramids were built and about the lives of the pharaohs as well as the workers who constructed the pyramids. There were many questions filling my mind, but few if any answers.” This inquiring interest led to the Giza Trilogy books, a monumental work of well-researched fiction set against the backdrop of the three pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Together, with their associated books, The Divine Light (currently being written) and the completed, Eternal Egypt, Supplement to the Giza Trilogy, these books total more than one million words! Other books written cover a wide range of subjects including historical, science fiction, ghost and detective stories as well as many other genres.
Paul currently lives in Hobart, Tasmania with his wife in a house overlooking the Derwent River. “The magnificent views of Hobart and of Mount Wellington inspire me in my writings — but the most important inspiration is my wife, Helena.”

The Review
The book covers historical fictional events and the universe of different cultures such as the pre historic tribes in Montana/USA in The Mammoth Hunters, or the Viking intrigues in the Odin Saga, both stories complete books in the collection that is not only composed of short stories but contains real value for the reader, as one pays not for some pages but for complete books with lots of content. Loved the story of Richard, the King with its twists and a time line which allows a deeper understand of historical events that are too complex when reported in a strict time line. The historical fictional character of the work allows the imagination to reach beyond history itself.
The final and rich story, The Golden Man is a real treasure search, not only in the development of the story, but also in the way the reader may become involved in the many human emotions within the story. The nice storytelling is simple and clear, allowing the reader to follow his/her inner imagination in order to transport him/her to these places and be alone with the story and the characters, watching the events to unfold.
