A Note From Barry S. Willdorf

The Flight of the Sorceress Glenys, a Celtic healer, is falsely accused of sorcery. Pursued across the crumbling Roman Empire by a tenacious bishop, she finally reaches Alexandria where she is befriended by Hypatia, the famous pagan philosopher/librarian and Acshi a Jewish rebel. Soon she is caught up in a battle between fanatical churchmen and Jews and pagans culminating in a pogrom that wipes out Alexandria's Jewish community and destroys nearly everyone she has come to love.

Burning Questions(Part One of my 1970s Trilogy):The teenage heir to a Gloucester MA fortune is found shot. Was it a teenage suicide or was he murdered? He recently witnessed a hotel being torched. Screw-up Nate Lewis is hired to bungle the investigation, and really screws up when he falls in love with everyone's favorite suspect, Christina Lima, the dead kid's girlfriend.
