Mark Hodder signing Burton & Swinburne: Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon
MARK HODDER will be signing BURTON & SWINBURNE: EXPEDITION TO THE MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 14th April from 4 - 5pm.
It is 1863, but not the one it should be. Time has veered wildly off course, and now the first moves are being made that will lead to a devastating world war and the fall of the British Empire. The prime minister, Lord Palmerston, believes that by using the three Eyes of Naga — black diamonds possessing unique properties — he’ll be able to manipulate events and avoid the war. He already has two of the stones, but the third is hidden somewhere in the Mountains of the Moon, the fabled source of the Nile.
Palmerston sends Sir Richard Francis Burton to recover it. But, caught in a tangled web of cause, effect, and inevitability, little does Burton realise that the stakes are far higher than even he suspects.
