SOLD OUT! EXCLUSIVE LONDON EVENT - GRAHAM HANCOCK: WAR GOD

Wednesday 5th June 2013 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Chargeable Event, Literary Event

War God coverSOLD OUT Graham Hancock's epic adventure novel War God tells an electrifying story of colliding empires during the Spanish conquest of Mexico, where two gods of war and their avatars, Cortes and Moctezuma, fight to the death for supremacy. Caught up in this collision are Tozi, a young Aztec witch, the beautiful courtesan Malinal whose hatred of Moctezuma runs so deep she will sell out her own land and people to destroy him, and the Spanish page Pepillo who serves a sadistic Dominican Inquisitor. In a land and an era dominated by human sacrifice, and the prophecy announcing the return of Quetzalcoatl, we see a culture at the height of its decadence, with personal loyalties pushed to the edge, and a brutal adherence to divine will.


Known for his alternative perspective and unorthodox examination of ancient cultures, Graham Hancock, the author of Fingerprints of the Gods and four other No.1 non-fiction bestsellers, is a compelling public speaker whose lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major series for Channel 4, have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions.

 

At Foyles, as well as introducing and launching War God, he will share exclusive advance information about some of the compelling new evidence he has gathered in support of the controversial thesis that first brought him worldwide fame -- the thesis of a lost civilisation, technologically advanced but spiritually corrupt, destroyed in a global cataclysm at the end of the last Ice Age. With work well-advanced on a sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods to be published in 2015, and his exciting new historical novel just published, this will be a fascinating opportunity to meet a unique thinker.


Venue: the Gallery at Foyles, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0JG
Tickets: SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT
