    Romulus Hardy, Egyptologist, heads to Egypt to go a-digging and unearths a sarcophagus and six caskets. Upon getting them to America, the mummies are stolen by ghouls and hauled off to Mexico. Will Rom ever find his mummies? This was a Netgalley find, chosen by my love of Indiana Jo...

    Horror, adventure, the supernatural, and Egyptology seasoned with a spice of the wild-west fuel this journey into the unknown. Romulus Hardy, an eager Egyptologst is commissioned to travel to Egypt to unearth the tomb of a mysterious yet powerful Pharaoh - he ultimately succeeds bu...

    Review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books. Fury from the Tomb is a wild pulpy romp start to finish. For me, the cover is what sold me (I totally judge books by their cover). Before I even read the description I knew I had to experience this story reminisce of a 198...

    A Mummy story set in the Old West. Romulus Hardy, burgeoning Egyptologist, sets out on his first expedition and uncovers more than he bargained for. While bringing the mummies to California, they are stolen and he has to track them down before they are used to take over the world. T...

    The shifting sands, the mouth of stone, the claustrophobia, the river of blood, the massive man-eating worm, the earthquake . . . damn! The opening 50 pages of Fury From the Tomb: The Institute for Singular Antiquities was some of the most exciting stuff I've read in ages. It's just a ...

    A solid Indiana Jones/The mummy style pulp noir that just never gets out of 3rd gear. The narrator is a bore and probably is the main reason for this stagnation in the story. Not the most overly original plot lines but was fun. The story is told from a 1st person POV style diary entrie...

    Take it from me, I work in higher education, Dr Romulus Hugo Hardy is your quintessential academic. He is the consummate scholar, happy to wax lyrical about bygone ages and learn the secrets of times past. He dreams about travelling to Egypt and discovering what once was lost. Enter my...

    Rom Hardy is no Indiana Jones, but what he lacks in terms of whip-cracking and wisecracks, he makes up in determination and unexpected bravery. Fury from the Tomb by SA Sidor is best described as Indiana Jones meets The Mummy, and it?s fast-paced, pulpy and fun, taking readers from t...

    I believed I only barely just liked this book, but when I thought I'd accidentally deleted it from my device before finishing it I was surprised at how crestfallen I was. I really wanted to know what happened next! Sure, the main character/narrator was kind of annoying (and had a ridic...

    A fairly fun, pulpy adventure. Has all the hallmarks of a story I'd usually adore (archaeology, mummies and monsters), but the prose made enjoyment a struggle. Despite a few delicious turns of phrase here and there, the writing style was something I - or rather, my editing brain - just...

    I want my mummy! And S.A. Sidor's novel provides; there's more than one ancient, enwrapped, dead mofo a-lurchin' about in "Fury From the Tomb" (no, that's not a side project of band Rocket From the Crypt). A title like that and a B-movie-poster cover promise fun ? and it is, thou...

    A short take: After a strong, swift start that successfully mimicked the pulp adventure of yesteryear, the plot slowed down to a lazy shuffle. By the halfway point, I was sad to find my attentions wandering. There are some fun moments to be had (I especially liked how Sidor worked i...

    It?s 1888. A time when it was still possible to make wondrous discoveries of antiquities in ancient Egyptian tombs. When young Romulus Hugo Hardy sets forth to make his name in the world of Egyptology, little does he know what remarkable and terrifying events his uncovering of a boo...

    This is the first novel from S.A. Sidor I've read. But it won't be the last. "Fury from the Tomb" was a highly entertaining, fast-paced mashup of multiple genres. I would've been perfectly happy with a good ole fashioned "pulp" story, but the author delivers much more. The narra...

    Not to oversell Fury from the Tomb, but it's a novel to rival H. Rider Haggard's SHE and A. Merritt's The Ship of Ishtar. It's got an intrepid Egyptologist, mummies, a god-slayer (evil, of course0, worm creatures that can take human form, a beautiful (and resourceful) young woman, a...

    I was drawn to this book for the obvious comparisons to Indiana Jones, but where Indy is smart and energetic, the protagonist of FRTT was loquacious and ham-fisted. And that, unfortunately, is the book's biggest weakness. The narrator tends to drone on when he's talking about the villa...

    I quite enjoyed FURY FROM THE TOMB. It knows you bought it for mummies, and mummies you get, without having to slog through half a book for the payoff. The "told via memoirs" scaffolding does take some of the suspense away (you know who survives and who doesn't long before things hit t...

    In 1888, young Egyptologist Romulous Hardy is offered a vast sum of money by a reclusive millionaire to search for ancient tombs in Egypt. Hardy jumps at the chance to get out of the library and into the field, but soon finds himself dealing with things no one could have forseen. After...

    Malicious mummies! Haunted tombs! Ancient curses! Giant worms! Mexican ghouls! Chinese vampires (not a spolier)! Hard-drinking gunslingers! Strangely resourceful librarians! Yes, this book has it all, and while its a bit of a memecrash it's a good memecrash. If Angry Robot produce any ...

    This book was really FUN. Like reading an Indiana Jones movie, crossed with the Mummy. Likable characters, lots of action and adventure, weird & surprising creatures, and plot twists. I thought it was written well, too. I would definitely read another book by this author, as this s...

    A Mummy story set in the Old West. Romulus Hardy, burgeoning Egyptologist, sets out on his first expedition and uncovers more than he bargained for. While bringing the mummies to California, they are stolen and he has to track them down before they are used to take over the world. T...

    A solid Indiana Jones/The mummy style pulp noir that just never gets out of 3rd gear. The narrator is a bore and probably is the main reason for this stagnation in the story. Not the most overly original plot lines but was fun. The story is told from a 1st person POV style diary entrie...

    Rom Hardy is no Indiana Jones, but what he lacks in terms of whip-cracking and wisecracks, he makes up in determination and unexpected bravery. Fury from the Tomb by SA Sidor is best described as Indiana Jones meets The Mummy, and it?s fast-paced, pulpy and fun, taking readers from t...

    A fairly fun, pulpy adventure. Has all the hallmarks of a story I'd usually adore (archaeology, mummies and monsters), but the prose made enjoyment a struggle. Despite a few delicious turns of phrase here and there, the writing style was something I - or rather, my editing brain - just...

    This is the first novel from S.A. Sidor I've read. But it won't be the last. "Fury from the Tomb" was a highly entertaining, fast-paced mashup of multiple genres. I would've been perfectly happy with a good ole fashioned "pulp" story, but the author delivers much more. The narra...

    Not to oversell Fury from the Tomb, but it's a novel to rival H. Rider Haggard's SHE and A. Merritt's The Ship of Ishtar. It's got an intrepid Egyptologist, mummies, a god-slayer (evil, of course0, worm creatures that can take human form, a beautiful (and resourceful) young woman, a...

    I was drawn to this book for the obvious comparisons to Indiana Jones, but where Indy is smart and energetic, the protagonist of FRTT was loquacious and ham-fisted. And that, unfortunately, is the book's biggest weakness. The narrator tends to drone on when he's talking about the villa...

    I quite enjoyed FURY FROM THE TOMB. It knows you bought it for mummies, and mummies you get, without having to slog through half a book for the payoff. The "told via memoirs" scaffolding does take some of the suspense away (you know who survives and who doesn't long before things hit t...

    It?s 1888. A time when it was still possible to make wondrous discoveries of antiquities in ancient Egyptian tombs. When young Romulus Hugo Hardy sets forth to make his name in the world of Egyptology, little does he know what remarkable and terrifying events his uncovering of a boo...

    This is the first novel from S.A. Sidor I've read. But it won't be the last. "Fury from the Tomb" was a highly entertaining, fast-paced mashup of multiple genres. I would've been perfectly happy with a good ole fashioned "pulp" story, but the author delivers much more. The narra...

    Not to oversell Fury from the Tomb, but it's a novel to rival H. Rider Haggard's SHE and A. Merritt's The Ship of Ishtar. It's got an intrepid Egyptologist, mummies, a god-slayer (evil, of course0, worm creatures that can take human form, a beautiful (and resourceful) young woman, a...

    Romulus Hardy, Egyptologist, heads to Egypt to go a-digging and unearths a sarcophagus and six caskets. Upon getting them to America, the mummies are stolen by ghouls and hauled off to Mexico. Will Rom ever find his mummies? This was a Netgalley find, chosen by my love of Indiana Jo...

    A solid Indiana Jones/The mummy style pulp noir that just never gets out of 3rd gear. The narrator is a bore and probably is the main reason for this stagnation in the story. Not the most overly original plot lines but was fun. The story is told from a 1st person POV style diary entrie...

    Romulus Hardy, Egyptologist, heads to Egypt to go a-digging and unearths a sarcophagus and six caskets. Upon getting them to America, the mummies are stolen by ghouls and hauled off to Mexico. Will Rom ever find his mummies? This was a Netgalley find, chosen by my love of Indiana Jo...

    Horror, adventure, the supernatural, and Egyptology seasoned with a spice of the wild-west fuel this journey into the unknown. Romulus Hardy, an eager Egyptologst is commissioned to travel to Egypt to unearth the tomb of a mysterious yet powerful Pharaoh - he ultimately succeeds bu...

    Review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books. Fury from the Tomb is a wild pulpy romp start to finish. For me, the cover is what sold me (I totally judge books by their cover). Before I even read the description I knew I had to experience this story reminisce of a 198...

    A Mummy story set in the Old West. Romulus Hardy, burgeoning Egyptologist, sets out on his first expedition and uncovers more than he bargained for. While bringing the mummies to California, they are stolen and he has to track them down before they are used to take over the world. T...

    The shifting sands, the mouth of stone, the claustrophobia, the river of blood, the massive man-eating worm, the earthquake . . . damn! The opening 50 pages of Fury From the Tomb: The Institute for Singular Antiquities was some of the most exciting stuff I've read in ages. It's just a ...

    A solid Indiana Jones/The mummy style pulp noir that just never gets out of 3rd gear. The narrator is a bore and probably is the main reason for this stagnation in the story. Not the most overly original plot lines but was fun. The story is told from a 1st person POV style diary entrie...

    Take it from me, I work in higher education, Dr Romulus Hugo Hardy is your quintessential academic. He is the consummate scholar, happy to wax lyrical about bygone ages and learn the secrets of times past. He dreams about travelling to Egypt and discovering what once was lost. Enter my...

    Rom Hardy is no Indiana Jones, but what he lacks in terms of whip-cracking and wisecracks, he makes up in determination and unexpected bravery. Fury from the Tomb by SA Sidor is best described as Indiana Jones meets The Mummy, and it?s fast-paced, pulpy and fun, taking readers from t...

    I believed I only barely just liked this book, but when I thought I'd accidentally deleted it from my device before finishing it I was surprised at how crestfallen I was. I really wanted to know what happened next! Sure, the main character/narrator was kind of annoying (and had a ridic...

    A fairly fun, pulpy adventure. Has all the hallmarks of a story I'd usually adore (archaeology, mummies and monsters), but the prose made enjoyment a struggle. Despite a few delicious turns of phrase here and there, the writing style was something I - or rather, my editing brain - just...

    I fantastic cross between weird western and classic pulp. Loved it. ...

    I want my mummy! And S.A. Sidor's novel provides; there's more than one ancient, enwrapped, dead mofo a-lurchin' about in "Fury From the Tomb" (no, that's not a side project of band Rocket From the Crypt). A title like that and a B-movie-poster cover promise fun ? and it is, thou...

    This should have been in my wheelhouse but it never really seemed to hit its stride. 5/10 ...

    A short take: After a strong, swift start that successfully mimicked the pulp adventure of yesteryear, the plot slowed down to a lazy shuffle. By the halfway point, I was sad to find my attentions wandering. There are some fun moments to be had (I especially liked how Sidor worked i...

    It?s 1888. A time when it was still possible to make wondrous discoveries of antiquities in ancient Egyptian tombs. When young Romulus Hugo Hardy sets forth to make his name in the world of Egyptology, little does he know what remarkable and terrifying events his uncovering of a boo...

    This is the first novel from S.A. Sidor I've read. But it won't be the last. "Fury from the Tomb" was a highly entertaining, fast-paced mashup of multiple genres. I would've been perfectly happy with a good ole fashioned "pulp" story, but the author delivers much more. The narra...

    Not to oversell Fury from the Tomb, but it's a novel to rival H. Rider Haggard's SHE and A. Merritt's The Ship of Ishtar. It's got an intrepid Egyptologist, mummies, a god-slayer (evil, of course0, worm creatures that can take human form, a beautiful (and resourceful) young woman, a...

    I was drawn to this book for the obvious comparisons to Indiana Jones, but where Indy is smart and energetic, the protagonist of FRTT was loquacious and ham-fisted. And that, unfortunately, is the book's biggest weakness. The narrator tends to drone on when he's talking about the villa...

    I quite enjoyed FURY FROM THE TOMB. It knows you bought it for mummies, and mummies you get, without having to slog through half a book for the payoff. The "told via memoirs" scaffolding does take some of the suspense away (you know who survives and who doesn't long before things hit t...

    In 1888, young Egyptologist Romulous Hardy is offered a vast sum of money by a reclusive millionaire to search for ancient tombs in Egypt. Hardy jumps at the chance to get out of the library and into the field, but soon finds himself dealing with things no one could have forseen. After...

    Malicious mummies! Haunted tombs! Ancient curses! Giant worms! Mexican ghouls! Chinese vampires (not a spolier)! Hard-drinking gunslingers! Strangely resourceful librarians! Yes, this book has it all, and while its a bit of a memecrash it's a good memecrash. If Angry Robot produce any ...

    This book was really FUN. Like reading an Indiana Jones movie, crossed with the Mummy. Likable characters, lots of action and adventure, weird & surprising creatures, and plot twists. I thought it was written well, too. I would definitely read another book by this author, as this s...

    I loved the tone Sidor created for this story - creepy, nostalgic and adventurous, all at once. That alone is worth five stars, never mind the suspense and original cast of characters. A real treat! ...

    This book kicks major ass. ...

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book - it felt like a reasonable homage to the classic ?mummy? movies of the 1930?s. A light but fun read. ...

    There was some of the Raiders of the Lost Ark and some of The Mummy. Interesting read. ...

    Weird and creepy and different. Not at all what I was expecting, but very good. ...

    This was a incredibly fun and exciting book. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It reminded me of the Allan Quatermain series. I liked that Rom was just a history nerd thrown into terrible situations. ...
