Rage! (Iliad I)



Nine years into the siege of Troy, the greatest Achaean warrior, Achilles, is sidelined by rage and resentment following a conflict with his commander, Agamemnon. This short but intense phase of warfare leads to devastating losses on both sides, conflict among the gods, and great tragedy on a human level.   Rage! by Greg R. Fishbone is a disruptive retelling of Homer's Iliad, restoring diversity, inclusion, and equity to a three-thousand-year-old Greek Epic tradition.

amazon book secondary page cover
  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 adapted for publication. Public Preview chapters have been taken offline until further notice.

  I'm often asked, does the world really need another retelling of Homer's Iliad? And I say well, it needs mine. Who else is going to translate polytropos as "stanky legg?"   Let me know what you think!
