Martin was on holiday in Cairo, Egypt, where he checked in to a cheap and dingy 3-star hotel room. He walked around in the city looking inspirations for his new Sci-Fi book when he stumbled across an Egyptian old market/bazaar. He bought a shimmering and glowing blue crystal, which turned out to be an ancient gem that led to a portal to another dimension.
A few days later he woke up in the hospital, supposedly after experiencing a rare form of food poisoning that caused vivid hallucinations. But the question remains, what really happened in the pyramid?
Join Martin in this exciting and exhilarating short-story which takes place in present time, almost a millennium before the events described in The Divine Dissimulation and The Divine Sedition which takes place in the 28th and 29th century.
