Eric Cline’s “1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed,” about the Bronze Age collapse, is only $5.98 in the Kindle Edition. I can’t wait to read it.
I haven’t yet read Eric Cline’s 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed, but I have heard about the practically simultaneous collapse of the great Bronze Age civilizations. It’s a subject I’ve been meaning to explore, but what with one thing and another . . . well, I never did.
However, I discovered that the Kindle edition of this much-lauded 2014 book is available for $5.98. I don’t know if that’s a temporary sales price or the permanent price. All I know is that it was such a good price on what is supposed to be such a good book that I instantly bought it. I plan to start reading it tonight.
In a few months time, I also hope to be able to direct you to a spectacular novel. I’m helping edit it now and, while I cannot tell you anything about it yet, you’ll hear from me when it’s available. It’s by a new, young writer, and it is simply phenomenal in terms of plot, character development, the author’s voice, the message . . . everything is special. I would be very surprised if the book doesn’t garner a very large audience.
I promise that, the moment the book is available, I’ll tell you all about it. But for now, when I walk away from my computer for the evening (where I’m doing gentle editing so as not to destroy the young author’s amazing voice), I’ll be reading about the Bronze Age collapse, and wondering and worrying whether there are parallels to be drawn to today’s world.
