Greek mythology is reimagined through contemporary authors and talented narrators in this dynamic short story collection. A pantheon of all-star performers, including Soneela Nankani, Robin Miles, and Donnabella Mortel, creates listening experiences that are at times poignant, joyous, and thoughtful. Stories incorporate mythological characters and themes to explore contemporary characters' relationships with gender, sexuality, agency, and the sentience of various life-forms. Other tales are more clearly aligned with their Greek namesakes. Notable selections include a wild night in the Willamette Valley wine country with a reincarnated Dionysus in "Dion and the Maenads" (Nankani); Miles's rooted musings as a woman transformed by Apollo in "Trembling Aspen; Or to Shiver"; and the noir-styled "Furies Detective Agency," featuring a trio of formidable sisters (Mortel).
