My Sumer Reading List

Enkidu Or Die, by John Updikurbanipal.  In this, Updikurbanipal’s sequel to The Centaur, the Gilgamesh legend plays out in a modern high school where hell is gym class, heaven is the teacher's lounge, and life on earth is an endless football game. 

The Ziggurat Patrol, by Alistair MacLeananapalus.  A World War II thriller about a team of special agents, all descended from Assyrian warriors, who fight the Nazis using spears and chariots.  And one of them is a traitor.

The Ruins of Ur-Ur, by Heinrich Schliemannilishu.  The first book in The Ur Trilogy, during which the world’s first city is revealed to have been built on the ruins of an even older city.  The sequels, which will detail the discovery of two even more ancient sites, will be called The Gates of Ur-Ur-Ur, and The Ghost of Ur-Ur-Ur-Ur.

Enkidoodle Dandy, by L. Frank Baumeshtar.  A children’s book about a young Sumerian fighter’s battle for freedom which is actually a disguised allegory about the American Revolution.
