W. J. Cherf is best known for his works in “historical science fiction,” his award-winning five volume time traveling series, The Manuscripts of the Richards’ Trust, which take place in ancient Egypt and early medieval France. He has also ventured into the realm of paranormal adventure and urban fantasy. His books are full of adventure, intrigue, and vivid description. As to why Cherf writes in his retirement years, he says, “I always wanted to write a book without footnotes.” This is an oblique reference to his treadmill “publish or perish” days as a professor of ancient history and archaeology. To find reviews and free chapters to all of his works, not to mention a handy source for the latest breaking news in Egyptology, go to www.wjcherf.com.
