2014: The Year of Ancient Greece!

Happy New Year, Loyal, Loyal (Loyal) Readers!

2014 is shaping up to be a GREAT year for Ancient Greek enthusiasts! There are several projects that are coming out this year that have to do with our favorite time in history, and all of them cover different mediums. Let's look at three of them:

First, 300: Rise of an Empire is shaping up to look crazy cool!

Next, indie developer Alien Trap is creating a 2D side-scrolling game based on Ancient Greek stories and art, called Apotheon.

And finally, author Gary Corby is coming out with his latest book, The Marathon Conspiracy.

All-in-all, it's looking like 2014 will be a great year for fans of Ancient Greek history. I hope to cover all of it in the coming months, so keep it locked to this blog for more information (and hopefully more information on my Themistocles novel)!

Edit: I have some exciting news! It turns out that W. Ruth Kozak's debut historical novel about Alexander the Great, SHADOW OF THE LION, is due out this summer! I've followed her blog for quite some time, and am so happy that Shadow if finally being published. I highly encourage you to check out her blog, then support this talented writer but buying a copy of the book!
