Electric car found in pyramid!

Do you remember reading those wonderful books in the 70s by authors like Erich von Daniken and the like, all about aliens visiting Earth milienia ago? How I miss the simple optimism of those books. But now, somebody has actually discovered something strange in the great pyramid:

Remember a few years ago, scientists and engineers managed to get a small wheeled-vehicle up one of those two narrow shafts that lead from the King’s Chamber (tomb) to the exterior of the pyramid in the direction of certain stars? They came up against a tiny wall and although the little robotic vehicle could peer over it, nothing could be seen in the small chamber opposite. They ran out of funding.

Well, they have funding again and last month managed to break through the wall. They found what looks like a robotic vehicle from ancient Egypt! Imagine that! It is battery powered.

You can find out more about ancient pyramids and how they might have originate in my book Unknown Place, Unknown Universe. BOOK 3 in the series, Worlds Like Dust, will be published some time in the next two months. Watch the trailer for Unknown Place, Unknown Universe below. I hope you like it, and if you do, or have anything else to say about this post, please leave a comment.

Do you like my video booktrailer for Ordo Lupus II: The Devil’s Own Dice?

The Devil’s Own Dice is mostly set in 13th Century Burgundy, France and covers the great Battle of Bouvines, which shaped Europe for the next few hundred years. I have had a look on the internet for any tours of the battle sites in the book and the best I can come up with is Battlefield Tours by Leger Holidays who have many tours to France, mostly for battles of WWII.

But they also do a tour of Burgundy so that might be worth checking out.

There was a tour of the Bouvines Battlefield to mark the 800th Anniversary, last year, but unfortunately I missed it!

Anyway, here is my video. I would like to know what you think of it so please stop long enough to comment:

Script (stage directions/effects are in italic)

Scene 1 – black background – 1/2 seconds

I could see the Ionian scream but we couldn’t hear him.

Scene 2 – Background of Jupiter fades in.

Jake Nanden is hell-bent on revenge for the death of his friend by an incompetent military commander, years ago.

Jake is a highly decorated Major in the Jupiter Wars against the Ionian Militia, former iron miners now allied with a mysterious alien force.

(Fade in laser pistol X.77)

But Jake is also a replicant, a clone; despised by all outside the military.

Scene 3

Torn between love for Jena Ω, his beautiful military psychologist, Katie, a fearless space pilot and the mission that will either give him satisfaction or death.

Beginning of soundtrack chorus. Fade in Clover Leaf rifle.

But all that changes when enemy forces get their hands on a powerful new weapon; a laser rifle, whose only maker logo is a clover leaf.

Friends will become enemies and enemies will become friends as conflicts escalate…

Script

Scene 1 – Black background.

On the Eiffel Tower viewing platform, Georgina had cut a hole in the safety fence with wire-cutters – big enough to climb through. She stared into the distance with a look of defiance in her face as she shouted:
“Don’t stop me!”

An ex-M.I.6 agent is walking his daughter to school when a slit in the sky opens up and something grabs her. Her mangled body is found but the death is unexplained.

Years later, the police begin to suspect him when a pattern of similar murders occur, moving towards Paris. He goes on the run to clear his name and save his marriage.

Scene 2 – Fade in picture of Georgina’s face and scroll up. Music moves to chorus.

Torn between his wife and Georgina, a French beauty, being pursued by a Catholic sect of assassins, things only become more confusing when the assassins save his life.

Scroll Georgina’s face up even more to show strange symbols.

Scene 3 – Revert to black background.

There are strange forces at work around him.

Scene 4 – Fade in picture of Serpent’s face and scroll up.

Scene 5 – Revert to black background.

If he can stay alive, he won’t rest until he has slain his daughter’s killer.

Scene 6 – change background to front cover. Show complete cover. Fade in title of book and author name. Roll reviews.

Scene 7 – Show text annotation.
