Apparently shame is less of a factor in my life than ever, because I have continued to run around buying books as though I have nothing but leisure to read them. They're for research, I tell myself. Um. Yeah.

One of my recent purchases was this. (Shut up, I got it used.) Coolest thing ever (okay, maybe not ever, but close).


In writing Manslayer and thinking about the rest of the oh, 98 stories I'm supposed to write, I've gone through and tried to untangle Achilleus and Patroklos's family tree. Greek mythology genealogy is like a Gordian knot made of gum (if you tried to cut through it with a sword, your sword would just get stuck). Amazingly, the writers of the movie Troy, whom I'm told made Achilleus and Patroklos cousins, to the indignation of many, were not exactly right, but not completely off their heads either.
