Sub-title: The Last Stand of the Prehumans
Though this was my first exposure to Swann, he is obviously
an academic and a scholar of classical Greek literature,
history, and mythology. Set in the time of the fall of Troy,
the book borrows characters out of Homeric legend and/or
history (Aeneus and his son Ascanius), adds Centaurs, Dryads
and Fauns, and tells a very modern-sounding story of the
Battle of the Sexes which could easily have inspired some of
today's popular Goddess mythology.
