A visit to Philadelphia Art Museum's Tutankhamenexhibit changes everything for Dr. Alberto Rodriguez. A professor of archeology at Jess Hawkins University, he is familiar with Howard Carter's 1922 discovery of Tut's tomb. His own excavation efforts in New Mexico and Arizona were worthy endeavors but trivial when compared to Carter's successes. Alberto tells himself that emulating Carter and trying to make an equally significant discovery is foolish. He stifles the obsession, but it surfaces once again when Alberto comes upon rumors of another lost Pharaoh in Egypt. Alberto throws caution to the wind as he draws his closest friends into an secret escapade that satisfies his ambition. When ancient Egypt beckons, he has to respond.
"The Lost Pharaoh - Sobek II" exceeds 80,000 words, runs more than 400 pages and has more than 80 illustrations. Buy it at Amazon.com in paperback, $15.99, or for Kindle, $6.99.

Pollens other sci-fi-fantasy offerings include: "ALTERNATIVE LIVES - To Sleep, Perchance to Dream ... Another Life," "CONJUROR - Living the Tale," "CREATOR - Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Epic, Earth’s Human Behavior Confronted,"
