Amurru - The Novel

  You've heard of the "Great Man" theory of history. Let me tell you another one. The "little persons" theory of history. The "little nobodies" theory of history. That's life. Really!
     It's 1300 B.C.E.
     Kingdoms come and go like sandstorms in the desert--dark, deadly, and usually unannounced: Sumeria, Old Babylonia, the city-state of Ashur, all sorts of them; Sakkarah, the Hittites, Assyrians, Egypt, Old Akkadia, Gutia, Middle Babylonia, Amurru, Neo-Sumeria at Ur, New Akkadia, the Kassites, the Soviets, the CIA, the State of Israel--but we're getting ahead of ourselves.
     It's 1300 B.C.E.
     Nothing human seems to survive very long, anymore. Nothing human seems important, anymore. Like withering grass. Like smoke in wind. What had happened to the great races, the great peoples from the dawn of time?
