The legends and the tales of Ancient Egypt are a wonderful source of knowledge, gathered here in Flame Tree's popular series of collections and stories.

A new collection of epic tales collected in the gorgeous gold-foiled and embossed hardback Flame Tree series. With their inventive mythology, the Egyptians explained the effects of famine, harvest, floods and death by creating a pantheon of gods that still holds our fascination today. The legends of Ancient Egypt are tied intimately to the presence and natural rhythms of the Nile so this new book, through a presentation of classic egyptological works, with a new foreword, brings the stories of the river culture to life, from the birth of creation by Ra, the sun god, to the murder of Osiris, and the revenge of Horus. We gain glimpses of the underworld and the afterlife, as the pharaohs of Egypt claimed ancestry from the Gods both worshipped and fashioned by the people of Egypt, at a time when humankind had begun to shape the world around it.

The Flame Tree Gothic Fantasy, Classic Stories and Epic Tales collections bring together the entire range of myth, folklore and modern short fiction. Highlighting the roots of suspense, supernatural, science fiction and mystery stories, the books in Flame Tree Collections series are beautifully presented, perfect as a gift and offer a lifetime of reading pleasure.
