Synopsis: An ancient Babylonian myth explains the cycles of the seasons as the result of the Goddess Ishtar sending her son to Earth, where he gave life to the crops and fruits, birds and animals, only to have Ishtar destroy his handiwork in a fit of jealous rage.

He has worked as a journalist in London and Paris, taught in North Africa and the Middle East, written educational books for Heinemann and had three poetry anthologies published.
