Some things are not meant to be stolen. That is what Hexus Thorne, vicious hitman for the Mafia, realizes when he unsuspectingly takes possession of a powerful Stone with legendary powers. And yet- this is not the only Stone hiding among the ancient ruins of the Island of Meylach.
The question is- who is The Stone Collector?
Part murder mystery, part mythic fantasy, part conspiracy theory and part social satire. Eitan Olevsky’s The Stone Collector is like a cross between Neil Gaiman, Umberto Eco, Jorge Luis Borges, and Paulo Coelho. This truly eccentric novel is built around the notion of seven stones that are as much a blessing as a curse. The characters in the book gain different magical powers but all power comes with a Price.
In telling an apparently fantastical tale about eastern and western alchemy, Atlantis, and the Mithraic Mysteries, it probes relentlessly at our human foibles – our insecurities, our vanities, our regrets, our desires.

Eitan Olevsky was born in 1981 in Lima, Peru. His knack for story-telling began at the early age of four, pestering his parents with sleepless nights of fairy tale readings. At five, he was reading Brothers Grimm and La Fontaine, fables imbued in wisdom and magic that would come to show his early fascination for the fantasy genre.
His first attempt at writing a novel was at the age of eight with The Legend of the Magic Wand, which he managed to finish three years later.
In 2002, Eitan won first prize at UPC’s “Juegos Florales”, a literary contest from the university where he was studying, with a satire that mocked university life itself.
Later, in 2005, he published the satirical novel, El Gran Maestro. Olevsky’s Gran Maestro shows a crazy collection of individuals, portraying with dark humor galore, their lifestyles in Peru during the estranged decade of the 80s and 90s.
