Special Engagement with Graham Hancock
"Magicians of the Gods"
In the early 1980’s Hancock’s writing began to
move consistently in the direction of books. His
first book (Journey
Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed
Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It
was followed by
Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with
Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan
Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and
AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored
with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his
widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid,
Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989.
African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and
Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.
Hancock’s breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. "Hancock has invented a new genre", commented The Guardian, "an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth." Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock’s growing reputation. Described as ‘one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade’ by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven’s Mirror, with photographer, Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock’s three-part television series, "Quest For the Lost Civilization".

About Graham Hancock:
Graham Hancock is the author of Magicians of the Gods, and of the major international bestsellers, The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US, "Quest For The Lost Civilization" and "Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age", have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past.
Graham Hancock’s multi-million bestseller, Fingerprints of the Gods, remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth’s lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returns with, Magicians of the Gods, the sequel to his seminal work. Published on September 10,2015 in the UK and on November 10, 2015 in the US, Magicians of the Gods is not in any sense an ‘update’ of Fingerprints, but is a completely new book filled from front to back with completely new evidence, completely new travels to the world’s most mysterious archaeological sites, and completely new insights, based on the latest scientific evidence, into the global cataclysm that wiped an advanced civilization from the earth and made us a species with amnesia, forced to begin again like children with no memory of what went before.
Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock’s early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain’s leading newspapers including, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.
