Witches Flying to the Sabbat




Greek Gods in Love
Timeless love tales – lively, witty, entertaining
by Barbara Stacy


Greek Gods in LoveLOOK INSIDE
ISBN 978-0-9773703-1-3
Paperback, 175 pages, 8.5"x11"
$15.95 US

The glittering mythology resonates with Eros, love in all its astounding variety – devotional, perfidious, sunny, dark, frenzied, serene, lusty, uncanny, earthy, twisty, and sometimes hilarious. We relish these tales in all their splendor and antic humor, and offer an inspired storyteller's fresh version of the old, old mythical magic.

Above them all reigned Zeus. The ancients enjoyed his constant adultery, launched after a 300-year honeymoon with his sister-wife Hera. His affairs were often weird and fanciful, an equal opportunity seducer among goddesses, nymphs and mortals.

Lavishly illustrated with 190 designs drawn from ancient Greek art. Visual delights abound. Divinely priced at $15.95
