Ludmila Filipova’s novel The Parchment Maze, which topped Bulgarian best-seller lists for several years and claims to decipher the world’s oldest writing system, can now be read in English too.

The novel combines real archeological evidence plus a healthy jolt of fantasy and even inspired National Geographic to come to Bulgaria to make a film about its discoveries (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t76PYjUCPBc ).

The Parchment Maze challenges readers with a new way to look at human history and theories about the angelic ones.

The author shares that The Parchment Maze and its sequel, Dante’s Antichthon prompted hundreds of Bulgarian readers to send her letters over the numerous similarities between the two books and the American best-seller Angelology, which came out two years later.

After three years of hard work by translators Angela Rodel and David Mossip, the English edition of The Parchment Maze is finally a fact.

One of the biggest surprises in the English edition is the cover, which features famous Bulgarian pop singer Miro, who agreed to play the role of the novel’s angelic, yet mysterious villain.

The Parchment Maze can now be found in Amazon and in an electronic version.

It is one of the first interactive books on Kindle, featuring hyperlinks, text, and links to the thousands of photos on the website http://www.parchmentmaze.com/  as well as hundred illustrations included in the English edition itself.
