From The Epic Mythoverse

 

And Then, An Amazon

  For nine years, Agamemnon's army has besieged Priam's Troy. But as events in The Iliad wind down, a single javelin, blown off its mark, hurls Penthesileia and her Amazon companions against the balance of powers, into the Trojan War, and into Epic history.   And Then, An Amazon is an adaptation, by MiV Author in Residence Greg R. Fishbone, of Book 1 of The Posthomerica by Quintus of Smyrna. This story represents the earliest and most complete version of Epic Cycle events between The Iliad and The Odyssey of Homer.

Mythoversal Pandora

  Mythoversal Pandora by Greg R. Fishbone is a story that's too dangerous for mortal eyes, and so has been hidden by the gods within a jar, within a box, within another box, within a shipping crate, within a website.   The story can be opened, verse by verse, only by community members working together (or by a clever few puzzle-solvers on their own).
