"Minotaur Revisited" by David Gelber Blog Tour/Giveaway (Ends 3/1) WW


MINOTAUR REVISITED
By
David Gelber

BLURB:  

Legend states that the Minotaur was confined to the Labyrinth, slain by Theseus and then laid to rest by thousands of years of Greek mythology. But, the truth is far different. Read the Minotaur’s own words as he recounts his full life as god, king, warrior, matchmaker, midwife, monk, sage, father, mother, husband and, most of all, witness. The fierce Minotaur lived to see and be a part of the best and worst of humanity during a life spanning thousands of years. Part bull, part human, the Minotaur struggled to find his place in this world and, in the end, left his unique mark on history.

A review will be soon to come.  One of these days, I may get caught up!  As a side note to this, please note that I am reading at least one book a day, and I am working as hard as I can to read the ten books or so that I am behind.  It is a vicious cycle, and I normally am never this far behind.  I am currently reading about 10 books with at least 10 more to come, but I am making progress.  Thank you so much for your patience.



AUTHOR INFORMATION:
David Gelber, a New York native, is the seventh of nine sons and one of three to pursue medicine. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 1980 and went on to graduate medical school in 1984 from the University of Rochester.
He completed his residency at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, followed by three years as attending surgeon at Nassau County Medical Center in Long Island, N.Y. Gelber has since joined Coastal Surgical Group in Houston, Texas.
Gelber has been a surgeon for more than 20 years, but over the last few years he began to pursue his passion for writing, initially with his debut novel, "Future Hope" (Emerald Book Company, January 2010). The novel speculates about future Earth and what the world might have been like if man had not succumbed to temptation in the Garden of Eden. "Joshua and Aaron" is a sequel to "Future Hope" and follows the battle of wills that transpires between unsung hero Joshua Smith and satanic Aaron Diblonski.
Dr. Gelber has added two books about surgery, "Behind the Mask" and "Under the Drapes", both of which provide the reader with a view of the world of surgery rarely seen by those outside the medical professions.
"Last Light" is an apocalyptic short story which starts off asking the question: "What would happen if nobody ever was sick or injured?"
"Minotaur Revisited" is an entertaining romp through history seen through the eyes of Quint, the famed half bull half man monster of Greek Mythology. It was in October 2012.

Gelber was raised in reformed Judaism, but joined the Presbyterian Church 15 years ago. He is married with three teenage children, four dogs and 24 birds of various species. His interests include horse racing, mechanical Swiss watches and, of course, writing.


David will be awarding a $100 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter at the conclusion of this and the virtual book tour, so follow the entire tour for more chances to win!

  6. I'm a fan of mythology and this book is intriguing. I never read a book with a minotaur as the protagonist.

    Living with 24 birds must be something. I had 6 pet birds once and I love early mornings when they sing. :)
