Description

Did you know that the Ancient Greeks had their own take on science fiction? Their stories took place not in the future, but in a fantastical, faraway past, and they believed the events in these stories actually had taken place. Using archaeological research and mining the writings of ancient philosophers, the author posits that the tales associated with Greek mythology are actually legitimate history and that the Greek gods were in fact extraterrestrials. Readers will be awed by these reinterpreted myths and legends, such as a new explanation of Atlantis and the true origin of famous mythical creatures.
