The origin story they didn’t want you to know.



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 conflict among the gods, tragedy on a human level, and devastating losses on both sides of the battlefield.   Rage! is a disruptive retelling of Homer's Iliad. It restores inclusion and diversity to this three-thousand-year-old epic tradition by presenting multiple viewpoints and expanding several existing character roles.   Additional installments have been paused, but existing chapters remain available.

RAGE is a disruptive retelling of Homer's Iliad.





  Once, the final words of the Iliad flowed into a new phase of the Trojan War. 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 in the doomed kingdom of Troy.   Amazons at Troy unearths a long-neglected chapter of the Trojan War. This disruptive retelling falls between the Iliad and Odyssey in the Epic tradition, restoring strong female warriors to their proper place on the Troad battlefield.   The completed manuscript is being adapted for publication. Public Preview chapters have been taken offline until further notice.
