The Egyptologists

(1965)
A novel by

 
The mysteries of the Metropolitan Egyptologicial Society are revealed in this spoof by Amis and Conquest. Amis and Conquest, editors of SPECTRUM magazine wrote this amusing novel together. A clever plot, full of mysogyny (avenged), plugs for their favorite science-fiction writers.

Every Thursday night in certain parts of London, husbands kiss their wives and then hurry off to attend the weekly meeting of a certain exclusive learned society. Jekyll-like, these men shed their air of scholarly absorption as they near headquarter - a building situated at a specially selected hard-to-find address, where a plaque, inscribed in specially designed hard-to-decipher lettering, reads: "Metropolitan Egyptological Society".
