A disruptive retelling of Posthomerica I

Intro

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 ancient Aithiopis once told the story of Prince Memnon of Ethiopia, who faced off against Achilles on the Troad plain.   Son of Dawn by Greg R. Fishbone is a planned retelling of an ancient rivalry that developed alongside the Iliad and Odyssey in the Greek Epic tradition.

Greg R. Fishbone, Author in Residence at Mythoversal, is releasing his young adult mythic fantasy, BECOMING HERCULES, as a weekly serial on Kindle Vella. This diverse coming-of-age drama shares its ancient roots with the Percy Jackson series, Song of Achilles, and Lore Olympus.

 
  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.
