The Man Who Sought Eternity
A Tale of Gilgamesh, First of Heroes - 2nd Edition
by Jeffrey Peter Clarke
Gilgamesh, victorious king of ancient Uruk, is first and boldest of heroes. To curb his lust for Uruk's women the gods create a man of the wilds to challenge him. They embark together upon bizarre adventures but offend the gods who wreak a cruel revenge.
Gilgamesh, fearful of his own mortality, hears of a man who, guided by the gods, survived the great flood by building an ark and then was granted eternal life.
Gilgamesh's quest to discover this man's secret of everlasting life takes him from Uruk on a journey of conflict and danger, through the valley of shadows, across the waters of death and into unknown lands.
Immortality reveals a shocking truth but this will lead to a far greater challenge when his kingdom is faced with destruction.
