The ancient Babylonian language, as spoken by Akkadians, Babylonians and their "gods," the Anunnaki, can now be heard for the first time in 2,000 years.
Two years ago, Cambridge University scholars began resurrecting the "lost" tongue after discovering how the language was originally pronounced and spoken. They began posting readings and poems online, allowing the public to hear the language spoken by earth's earliest civilization and its "gods."
Babylonian was one of the chief languages of Ancient Mesopotamia, dating back as far as the second millennium BC, but died out around 2,000 years ago. Now, after two years of reading and posting audio files, the Cambridge scholars have amassed dozens of recorded readings - including "The Epic of Gilgamesh," man's earliest known

Happy to report all is well on the God Key front, book has been rigorously corrected (as opposed to lackadaisically corrected, I guess) and all is in order. The book will be re-published and re-released later this week, possibly as soon as Friday the 9th. All hail TEAM 3 at CreateSpace for working late, working hard and putting up with all my nitpicky emails.
But what about the text missing from those first editions published since mid-October? You may well ask. (And I'm sure you do).
Since so many of you purchased the first press run, it's impossible to recall all copies of the book. Tough to do with ANY book, fiction or faction, so I've decided to post the missing clue, the FINAL and ULTIMATE GOD KEY to the whole puzzle, code or cipher, here, on this website.
As an Easter Egg.
Yes, I'm just that insidious, sneaky, mischievous and evil.
For all of you who wish to read the final God Key clue -- without reading the THE GOD KEY beforehand (i.e., and instead "cheat" your way to the answer) shame on you. Yes, you. You know who you are. And may the Hungry Dead One, the golloch, put a pox on you.
On your spinal cord, specifically. Hmmm...yes. Spinal.
Fluid is nice. Very nice. Life-giving.
As is the clue.
"So..." as Inspector Schriever would say, "...solve it, schmucko."
