ANCIENT TEXTS READING LIST

On this webpage, I have compiled a list of the various myths of the gods, along with references to the various academic books where one can read the full, unedited texts. Most of these academic works are in print and readily available by mail order (e.g. from Amazon), so there is no excuse for anyone to rely on the interpretations of writers such as Zecharia Sitchin or myself. I cannot over-emphasise the importance of reading these source texts if one is to draw a legitimate conclusion concerning who, or what, the gods actually were.
