Thoughts on the Egyptian Project

The Valley of the Tombs of the Kings - the very name is full of romance, and of  all Egypt’s wonders there is none, I suppose, that makes a more instant appeal to the imagination.
Howard Carter


Given the recent influx of new figures and encouragement, I've been thinking about my Egyptian Pulp project.
