Cox, Simon

Simon Cox (1966- ) was a former editor-in-chief of Phenomena magazine, which is dedicated to promoting alternatives to accepted historical orthodoxies. He currently runs the UK publishing company Henu Publications. Cox has also worked as a researcher for well-known writers such as Graham Hancock and David Rohl. He is probably better known as the author of a number of books that investigate the historical realities behind the works of Dan Brown[247-250]. He is co-author of an A-Z series[251-254] of books on subjects such as Ancient Egypt, King Arthur and Atlantis.

Unfortunately, Cox’s Atlantis offering is just a heavily padded rehash of well known material and includes a number of headings that at the most generous could only be described as having a very tenuous connection with Atlantis; they include Dogon Tribe, Easter Island and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.The headings range from ‘Aelian’ to ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’, so really the title should be an A to T of Atlantis.

The dustcover notes, for which I’m assuming that neither Cox nor his co-author Mark Foster were responsible, claim that the book answers the question of where Atlantis was located. It does not.

A decade ago Cox launched the Into the Duat website(a).
