A disruptive retelling of Posthomerica I

Serialized Manuscript

Amazons!

 

Intro

Directly following the last book of the Iliad comes the equally ancient and traditional next chapter. As the Trojans bury their Prince Hector and Achilles mourns his Patroclus, a tragically misthrown javelin brings Queen Penthesileia and her crew of Amazon warriors to the besieged city of Ilion and into the next stage of the Trojan War.   Amazons! by Greg R. Fishbone is a disruptive retelling of an ancient tale of love and war that developed alongside the Iliad and Odyssey in the Greek Epic tradition.

The completed manuscript is being edited for a scheduled Fall 2021 release in paperback and ebook formats. The Public Preview chapters will remain available on this site, plus Bonus Chapters for subscribers of the free Mythoversal Newsletter.

  I'm having a lot of fun with my take on the Penthesileiad, and I hope you are enjoying it as well. The character portraits were done with an early beta of an app called Portrait Workshop. Let me know what you think!

It's a great app so far. I'm looking forward to updates when more details and customization will be possible.
