Judges comments

“An exciting and ambitious undertaking with a premise lodged in ancient mythology, archaeology, world religions and indigenous cultures, The Everything Theory is a wild ride. A scientific and anthropological thriller for a thinking audience, the novel seeks to shed light on the ‘true’ origins of mankind. Gray achieves her goals of integrating a suspense thriller narrative with a rich knowledge of culture, anthropology and history, from NASA and astronomy to Gilgamesh, Zoroastrianism and Angkor Wat. The author has a very gutsy and ambitious goal which she achieves with style and grace.”

IP Judge Anna Bartlett 2009

The Everything Theory

Amazon Reviews

“The continuously unfolding action provides the story with pace and vigour, and challenges the reader to keep up or be left behind. 

“Dianne Gray shows a wide range of scientific, historical, geographical, and sociological knowledge that enriches the story throughout. 

“The Everything Theory includes the best answer I’ve ever heard for man’s repeated question of “if all this really happened, why doesn’t everybody know about it?”

    Premise seems very interesting, I am intrigued.
    Certain aspects of this story remind me of DUNE.
    Looking forward to read this.

    Recently I have written a short story- a surreal dark comedy. I’d be blessed to have your feedback:
