Editorial Reviews


A few highlights from ★★★★★ customer reviews:
  • "It is the best book I have read in the last 15 years and easily makes it in my top 10 of all time (most of which are Hugo or Nebula award winners)."​​
  • "I've read many F & SF books over the past 50 years. This is right among the best... Can't wait for the next one!"
  • "Only work and family activities allowed me to put this book aside."
  • "...the characterization is flawless. The detail of the period, the actions and motivations are well captured... A grown up's book - and something to make a classicist think."
  • "Excellent period setting with good historical detail overlaid with a great science fiction story and very, very good characters."
  • "An intriguing, addictive book crafted by a master."
  • "Stunning is not an exaggeration."

From the Author

ATHENIAN STEEL is a unique, violent, and sexy blend of gritty historical fiction and cosmic SF set during the Peloponnesian War. The story is rich in historical detail, featuring bloody and brutal battles, but at its heart is the complex, dysfunctional, and ever-evolving anti-romance between Demosthenes and his star-born ally Thalassia. The book and series will appeal to fans of the classic SF and Science Fantasy of the 70's to 90's written by the likes of Gene Wolfe, David Gemmell, David Drake, Michael Moorcock, & more--or anyone looking for something that's edgy and a bit off the well-worn paths of SF/F while sticking to a classic style of epic storytelling.

The first volume of The Hellennium, ATHENIAN STEEL begins a saga of altered history that will span centuries.

Unique. Twisted. Bloody. Epic. Iron Age Sci-Fi.
