Erik Sieurin wrote many reasonable things about Durulz.

Zorak Zoran took it from him on the Hill of Gold.

I'll pass on a book that Greg Stafford recommended to me: The Time Falling
Bodies Take To Light by William Irwin Thompson. The subtitle, "Mythology,
Sexuality & the Origins of Culture" is pretty accurate. Thompson looks at
archaeology and myth, and how humans evolved both physically and
mythically. Unlike most writers about mythology I've read, he seems firmly
grounded in science.

As I read it, I found many echoes from Greg's Entekosiad (which also covers
mythology from the Paleolithic to the end of the Neolithic). It was a
coincidence that I was reading it as I was preparing a scenario in
Neolithic Peloria, but it was an excellent reference.

And it's even well written. Oh, and it includes porn from Sumer.
