From publisher blurb:
Garden of Athena is a planet of adventures among the ancient Greeks... but in the far future, with energy spears and Pulse shields. Experience science fiction with epic politics in the style of Frank Herbert's masterpiece, Dune, and epic battles to make all the Greek poets proud.
Nearby barbarian planets are subdued, mostly, and the city states are at the height of their power. Yet all is not well in the state of Methone. By the time this epic's told, the characters will either be Heroes, or tragic witnesses to the end of an era.
