I have finished and enjoyed the first two stories. Investigating ancient myths is the theme and the adventure and suspense of outwitting the corrupt opposition make a good read.
I would like to request the author and/or editors to be more careful of verifiable facts. Part of the story of the Mahoganny Ship is set in Australia. I don't know the other locations mentioned in the stories, but I am an Australian, and have visited Bendigo. There are several mentions of 21st century sounding technology and equipment and modes of transport, including massive aircraft. The runway described for Bendigo, one of our major Regional Cities, is unfortunately inaccurate: a dirt runway would only be found near an isolated village with a very small population or as a private landing strip on a farm. It made exciting scenes in the story, but unfortunately a quick visit to even late 20rh century google would have provided the facts and perhaps even the address of a real dirt airstrip in the area of the story. There are major underground cave systems in the south of this country, not all fully explored, I don't know if they reach as far east as Bendigo. In spite of my critique, the stories are ingenious and suspensful and exciting.
