Wah, looky heyuh – it’s another Voynich novel to add to my big fat list. Retired chemical industry R&D / sales guy Baz Cunningham will be signing copies of his third novel “The Voynich Enigma” next Saturday morning (15th Nov 2008) in New Martinsville, WV.

In the book, a couple of sharp-witted cousins find the key to the VMs on their West Virginia farm, before going head to head with an evil Mamluk chieftan in a cave in Provence as they try to reach a long-lost Templar treasure trove. If you like the sound of all that, a copy could be yours for $15 via the author’s pleasantly sparse website (though, errrrm, clicking on the PayPal button produced an error when I tried).

Also, the [contact-the-author] page says “put contact email here”, so I presume that’s a work-in-progress too. But when I do (finally) manage to get in contact with Baz, I’ll be sure to buy a copy & to post a review here, as per normal. *sigh*

    Evil Mamlûks?! Dude, Selim the Inexorable rid the world of the Mamlûk Menace in 1519!

    (Not that they were really a menace. The idea of a state led by a slave oligarchy has always struck me fascinating and almost appealing.)

  2. Hey Bill,

    Having just read a novel with indestructible Nazis, nanoweapons, and cross-dimensional ziggurats, I’m fine with two farm-boys fighting an evil Mamluk. In fact, it sounds almost reasonable. 😉

    Cheers, ….Nick Pelling….
