Product description

About the Author

I'm a woman in my forties and live in Sydney, Australia. Amgalant began when I explored into The Secret History of the Mongols, a 13th century text, and knew I had found my perfect subject. I've always loved ancient/medieval epic and romance, and I've always been drawn to the cultures of tribal peoples, whose history we know too often through hostile or simply alien states - Rome, China. With Amgalant, I want to do justice to The Secret History, its art, its honesty. When they came to write this, their first book, the Mongols had two traditions to hand: oral epic - ubiquitous on the steppe - and stone inscriptions from past 'states on horseback' as the Chinese called them. The one lent poetry, the other concepts of how to tell a history. I argue that both traditions went towards our faulty hero. It isn't glorification. It's art, and it's analysis. Sequence of Amgalant: #1 Of Battles Past #2 When I am King Amgalant One: The Old Ideal is these together #3 Me and Atrocity #4 The Sheep from the Goats Amgalant Two: Tribal Brawls is these together I've published the lot in 2012. Nine years in the make, but I kept them to work on while I learnt, and only now am happy with the first. Amgalant Three, the final, is underway, at this stage titled Wonders and Horrors.
