Methusaleh's Daughter

John Eddy and Dean Esmay have written an amazing novel entitled Methuselah's Daughter, the Authorized Biography of Zsallia Marieko. After you check out what they have to say about it, you'll also want to take a look at Zsallia's blog.

It was my privilege to be a member of the focus group on which John and Dean tested out the novel while they were writing it. Also, skilled constructor of languages that I am, I put in the head work and the grunt work on the ancient language— somewhere between Proto-Germanic and Proto-Indo-European— which crops up here and there in the novel: "Juwunte matar kwī ken ert med tinōm bharnoi?"

And when the novel eventually comes out, you'll want to read it. Trust me. In fact, you won't be able to put it down.
