We're proud to announce the launch of the limited edition of Robert Sharp's The Good Shabti - a brand new thriller that "masterfully mingles science with historical fiction, and updates the mummy story for the digital age". (Deji Olukutun said that!)
To celebrate this terrific new thriller, we'll be throwing a grand unwrapping party on Thursday, 29 January.
We'll be entombed in the basement of the lovely Betsey Trotwood pub (56 Farringdon Road, EC1) for the occasion. Doors open at 7, brief talks at 7.30, then drinks, books and mingling with authors, Egyptologists and other lovely people.
Our extremely limited (and signed... and numbered...) edition of The Good Shabti can only be purchased in two ways:
- on the night (limited to 2 copies per person)
- through Best Little Bookshop (who will be selling the books after the launch)
Best Little Bookshop are an independent online retailer that promote the very best in (printed) books - and offer free international shipping. We're delighted that they've partnered with us as the exclusive retail partners for The Good Shabti.
To make things fun, we'll also have copies of our other mummy-related publications on sale on the night - The Book of the Dead and Unearthed. (And there will be delicious financial incentives to buy all three!)
- If you're interested in ordering your copy through BLB, you can do so here.
- Maps, details and RSVPs are here.
We look forward to unveiling "the greatest Egyptian adventure since 'Scooby Doo in Where's My Mummy'". (Tom Harper said that. For real!)
