I’ve been a fan of Greek mythology since I was a kid and, as I look over this book, I feel a sense of nostalgia. In itself, the world of Hellas has all the tropes of a good science fiction game: starships of various sizes, alien races, various weapons of a high-tech nature, star-charts, and various planets to explore. But it also has the tropes of a good mythological story: monsters, scholars, Gods of myth, divine gifts and powers, ancient fashion and the idea of epic heroes.
I can’t recommend this book enough to anyone looking for something new and fun. As I said earlier, I was skeptical of mixing these two genres. But Michael L. Fiegel and Jerry D. Grayson convinced me that an armored Hoplite warrior, armed with a high-tech pistol and relying on the gifts of his Gods not only works, but is something that I’ll be seeing more of when I start to run Hellas: Worlds of Sun and Stone.
