My new book, Gifts From the Gods: Ancient Words & Wisdom From Greek & Roman Mythology, is now available at bookstores everywhere.
Initial reactions have been extremely positive, and my understanding is that it has already been reprinted to meet demand.
If it is reasonably convenient, I encourage — nay, urge — you to buy from an independent retailer. They are the lifeblood of the industry, and your patronage is their lifeblood. I’m well aware of the convenience and price advantage Amazon offers, and that many people don’t live anywhere near an indy, but buying indy is seriously an investment in your local community and, in a more abstract way, in the future of books — or more specifically , a future in which there continue to be professional “book people” who help bring attention to wonderful and quirky books that might not otherwise find their audience. I have a lot more to say on this topic, but I’ll save it for another day. In the meantime, I hope you’ll find a bookstore and get a copy of Gifts From the Gods for each of the mythology fans in your life.
