Dear Listener: Welcome back to my other world - the rules are a little different here. Life is complicated for Lydia Smith. She´s working at that tacky, third-rate museum, Shrimpton´s House of Ancient Horrors, trying to salvage her career in para-archaeology - and dating the most dangerous man in town. Just when she thinks she might be getting things under control, she stumbles over a dead body and discovers that her lover has a secret past that could get him killed. Just to top it off, there´s trouble brewing underground in the eerie, glowing green passageways of the Dead City. Of course, all of these problems pale in comparison to the most pressing issue: Lydia has been invited to the Restoration Ball and she hasn´t got a thing to wear. If, like me, you sometimes relish your romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, join me for After Glow. Sincerely, Jayne Ann Krentz, writing as Jayne Castle 1. Language: English.

About 225 miles west of Ulaanbaatar, the present-day capital city of Mongolia, are the ruins of Karakorum, the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire. Located in the Orkhon River Valley, at the foot of the Khangai Mountain range, the city was founded by Genghis Khan in 1220 CE. Under his son and successor, Ögedei Khan, Karakorum grew into a thriving city, with high walls enclosing an urban landscape of brick-built structures and paved roads, divided into different districts with a palace, craft workshops, and marketplaces. Under Ögedei and his successors, Karakorum became a cosmopolitan hub of crafts and exchange along the great Silk Road trading network. Genghis Khan followed the tradition of his nomadic predecessors when he founded Karakorum in the Orkhon Valley. The landscape had previously been settled by many different nomads and empires, including the Huns, Turks, and Uyghurs. These different cultures - despite existing over vastly different periods of time - found common ground in the Orkhon Valley. There they demarcated sites of significance with structures that have survived to the present day, a rarity in the archaeology of nomadic peoples. Archaeological material dating to the Paleolithic period through the Bronze and Iron Ages has been found in the Orkhon Valley, and later monuments include the memorial sites of the Turks, who maintained an extensive funerary area around the Bilge Khagan and Kul Tigin memorials in the sixth and seventh centuries CE, and the Uyghur capital city of Ordu-Baliq from the eighth and ninth centuries. Each of these people left their mark on the landscape, and in the mythologies of the ancient conquerors of the Eurasian steppe, so it is no wonder that the far-flung Mongol Empire considered Karakorum in the Orkhon Valley to be their capital. The story of Karakorum did not end with the decline of the Mongol Empire either. From the 16th century onwards the area became the center of Mongolian Buddhism, a fact unde... 1. Language: English.
