W.J. Cherf has always wanted to write a book without footnotes, to tell a fascinating tale that is so real that his avid readers are left puzzled over what was real and what was Memorex. To craft such a tale takes wit, a love of science fiction, and above all a deep reverence for ancient history and archaeology. All of these qualities are stitched together beautifully in his books, because Cherf has been there, dug that. He's even seen the sun rise from atop the Great Pyramid.
Reviews have been generous:
"Bow Tie: Two Thumbs Up"
"Imagine a dinner party thrown by Tom Clancy, where he sits EE "Doc" Smith next to HG Wells"
"Amazing story, fascinating detail, a fabulous read"
"Cherf has done a wonderful job combining facts from Egyptian history and a fictional story to create a compelling trilogy of intrigue and espionage"
"What an enjoyable experience reading this series!"
With a BA in Anthropology, MA in Egyptian Archaeology, and Ph.D. in Ancient History, Cherf remains current as an elected officer of Denver's Egyptian Studies Society. Living with his beloved wife Sue, they keep Foxbat 1 out in the garage. They enjoy golf, road racing (that's where Foxbat1 comes in), and cheering for the Cubs and Chicago Bears.
