"Gods, Demigods and Demons" is a concise, yet wide-ranging encyclopedia of Greek mythology that promises hours of delight for the classics enthusiast. Names, places and events are described in exciting, briefly-told tales of the gods of the Olympian pantheon. Here too are the demigods, demons, heroes, and many of the great cycles, fables and nature myths. The entries are well-balanced, readable and informative. They evoke the majesty, as well as the all-too-human foibles, of the Greek deities and their acolytes. At the same time, they bring the colourful world of Greek myth to life without providing more detail than is required for maximum enjoyment of the stories. Whether they find themselves caught up by the single combat of Hector and Achilles before the looming walls of Troy; or find themselves transported, like Odysseus, by the haunting and deadly song of the Sirens; or are thrilled by the quest of Jason and his Argonauts for the fabled Golden Fleece - fans of ancient history will find countless tales here to appreciate and return to again and again. "Gods, Demigods and Demons" is both a helpful guide and a treasure-trove of pleasurable reading. It will be an indispensable companion to the ancient Greeks' religion and the gods that they worshipped.
