The Babel Trilogy, Book One
THE FIRE SEEKERS
The Fire Seekers is a mystery / thriller about our mythology, and our destiny.
What really happened at the Tower of Babel? What happened is that the Architects came down to us. They were the source for all our myths and religions. They gave us the strange and powerful virus we call 'civilization.' In a sense, they gave us our humanity.
They just lied about why.
“Nearly all crazy theories are false. That’s the easy part. The hard part is that there are no interesting theories except the crazy ones that turn out to be true.”
(Derek Partridge, retired Professor of Ancient History)
“If this is real, then everything we thought we knew about human civilization—the origin of cities, and religion, and language itself—it’s just frost on the window pane.”
(Half-Scottish, half-Chinese language prodigy Morag Chen, commenting on her own translation of the so-called 'Akkadian Version,' found at Babel)
