• Reimagines the Epic of Gilgamesh in the context of Sitchin’s discoveries
• Details ancient Sumerian sex rituals, the Anunnaki lineage of the gods who lived in Sumer, Anunnaki spacecraft

Written in secret so as not to incite criticism about his controversial discoveries, this novel from the late Zecharia

Retelling the Epic of Gilgamesh in the context of his discoveries about the Anunnaki, Zecharia Sitchin weaves a tale of
