Om boka

To find the fountain of youth - what would that entail, to live forever,
to pass through many generations, without dying? Would it be a blessing or a
curse? We are taken on an amazing journey, as the man originally known as
Kroudhr, Vizier to the King Alexander, tells his rather bewildered American
guest a bizarre story. When he was a high ranking official of the King's court
centuries ago, Kroudhr secretly discovered the magical elixir that bestows
immortality. He went on to experience many marvelous adventures over the
succeeding generations. He also explains the various methods he used to conceal
his unchanging physical condition. Unlike other personages in fantasy
literature who have claimed immortality, Kroudhr did not go through a series of
guises as the great composers, writers, government officials, and scientists of
history. Instead, he assumed far more humble personas. However, from time to
time he met, and even helped, geniuses and leaders with their work. This is an
intelligent account of the practical issues of life without end on Earth: the
advantages, the odd coincidences, the distorted view of human
society.

The Vizier of the Two-Horned Alexander focuses on the
constantly unfolding situations, overlapping and shifting, that confront the
man who cannot die. The author gives us a mature, cultured perspective on this
most unusual character. This is a new edition of a long neglected masterpiece,
which was first published in 1897. It contains a delightful array of fantasy
elements, and is one of the best of its genre.
