Richard Blake, the critically-acclaimed and internationally best-selling author of “Blood of Alexandria” etc, has now allowed me to read the copy-edited text of “Sword of Damascus”. It is with complete lack of bias that I pronounce this the greatest work of literature ever produced in the past 8,000 years of human history. The lady in the coffee bar where I now sit read but a single word of the title, and is still shaking as if from a religious experience. You will soon be able to reserve your copies on Amazon. For the moment, do see if you can obtain copies of “Blood of Alexandria”. The hardback edition sold out within days. But continued orders might prompt Hodder & Stoughton to order a reprint.
