Alastair has been fascinated with all things Ancient Egyptian since his childhood when he was lucky enough to visit the Tutankhamen exhibition at the British Museum one grey London day. From poetry in praise of the solar disk, to the adventures of the Doomed Prince and the earliest version of Cinderella, this set of stories travels the Nile to explore one of the greatest civilisations of the ancient world.

As a gay man, Alastair has often reflected on the way in which men and their relationships, romantic and otherwise, are represented in folk and fairy tales. In this set he recasts some familiar (and some not so familiar) tales to examine masculinity, sexuality and power.
