Overview

ROMAN KILLER: THE SCYTHIAN ROMANCE. ILLUSTRATED. This is the first English translation of the Scythian Romance, the astonishing autobiography of the philosopher-warrior, Saka the Scyth, who worked for such remarkable figures as Pompey the Great, Julius Caesar and Queen Cleopatra during the fall of the Roman Republic. "The Scythian Romance reads like an historical thriller. Unlike its namesake, the Alexander Romance, it craftily combines the philosophy of the True Story with the bawdy humor of the Satyricon. Modern readers will no doubt find it outrageously funny, but should bear in mind that the ancient world was very often rather serious." - B. S. Fowlder, Center for Accurate Historical Study, USA. "Mesmerizing! Compelling! Unbelievable! Unforgettable! The revelations are absolutely explosive! The truth about Crassus, Cornelia, Cicero, Cato, Clodius, Cleopatra and Christ will leave scholars in an uproar! Was Saka the Scyth the Beloved Disciple? The evidence is overwhelming! Only a couple have ever survived Roman history. The Scythian Romance exposes who they are." - Dick Dorkins, Reigning High Priest, Atheist Church, GB. "History, mythology, philosophy, fishing, and the mystery of life; everything important is uncovered. The barbarian Scyths and decadent Romans compare unfavorably with each other. Only cultured Queen Cleopatra, and perhaps the centurion Buckteeth, comes out of this looking any good." - Zahi Harass, Supreme Council of Antiquities and Forgeries, Egypt. "ROMAN KILLER is a runaway action-adventure story, but the underlying mythology, theology and gastronomy will leave the reader with food for thought long after the symposium ('drinking-party') has been desserted [sic]! Very tasty indeed!" - Werner Schnitzel, Author of Cooking under Siege and Crossing the Alps: Hannibal's Cannibals. "The plot twists and turns like the serpent beguiling Eve, but ultimately comes full circle, as a tail-swallowing snake: symbol of eternity. Cross, double-cross and six thousand crosses of Crassus; the crucifixions leave the reader hanging on every word. The loose ends are nooses, and the holes in the plot are open graves waiting for their next victim. ROMA is AMOR spelt backwards, OR MA as an anagram, but I'm a Freud this is the mother of all puzzles." - Candice B. Fureel, Author of The Holy Flood and The Holy Pail. "Saka the Scyth meets the great general Marius, gluttonous Lucullus, decadent Sulla, lecherous Nicomedes, megalomaniac Mithridates, desperate Spartacus, devious Caesar, invincible Pompey, sensual Clodia, drunkard Antony, deadly Octavian, doubting Judas and his savior Jesus. Cannibals, mercenaries, witches, Amazons, harem girls, ghosts, philosophers, barbarians, priests, gladiators, kings, consuls, disciples, traitors, and naked holy men - this book has it all! You've got to have it!" - Colin MacCullock, Best-selling Author, USA. "Like the Augustan History, the Scythian Romance is probably a clever forgery of the late second century AD. Some genius, perhaps Lucian himself, employed the honest Scythian warrior to expose the degenerate corruption of the Roman Empire, exactly as the USA today. We need Saka to remind us that greed, lust and power are but shadows in the light of truth, beauty and love." - Sigmund Hee, Honorary Professor, Hop'ung University, Heidelberg.
