Iliad

 

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 between the gods, and great tragedy on a human level.   Rage! is a retelling of Homer's Iliad, building on three thousand years of Epic Cycle tradition.

Posthomerica

 

Amazons!

  Directly following the Iliad, 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! is a retelling of Posthomerica I by Quintus of Smyrna, an ancient tale of love and war that developed alongside the Iliad and Odyssey in the Greek Epic tradition.
