The myth of Persephone (and Hades), narrated by herself. There is nothing that regards me, despite this being my story.…What is told is about the passion of my husband, the desperation of my mother, of my father’s decision. It speaks about the suffering of the mortals and of the rites once followed, so that what happened would never again be repeated. There are stories that run parallel and in contrast, they recount suggestive details, but anything about me, of what happened to me, it seems they knew too little. And yet this was my story. This is not the story of Hades, the lord of the Underworld, of the souls of the dead and of all that grows underground. Nor is it the story of Demeter, Mother Earth who, in the world of research, was her only daughter, lost in the darkness of Erebus; and certainly, it is not a story about Zeus, who allowed all this to happen, until the mortals forgot, as a result of their own mortality, what they had to do. They are also here in this story, but it is not their story. It is mine. It is the story of the goddess of spring and the queen of the Avernus, the strife between the two worlds, until that suffering forced me to make a choice. Almost nothing is known of what this means, for everyone. At least it made the world what it is. This is because I am the queen of the flowers and roots. I am Persephone.

There is terrible disease in this world: jealousy. And although in each mortal it remains coiled, hidden in the lair…of reason and intellect, it cannot satisfy itself; as soon as hunger touches it, it awakens to the unconsciousness of its action in order to sustain itself... But its voracity has no limits and can go beyond the understanding of reason, and in this it can dramatically affect the destiny of every human being. This is what happened to the strategist Aristoteles, experienced by a frenzied jealousy, the man of war harbored a fierce hatred against his main rival, the dashing Demetrius. So that his dream evaporated to give way to horrible nightmares arisen from his tormented mind... "An intense love" is a free adaptation of a text of Parthenius of Nicaea: "Passion of love", number 23: "chilonis"

&“A confident One Thousand and One Nights for our present . . . Furious pop entertainment—full of sex, passion, violence, and magic.&” —Slant magazine…This is the story of the legendary City of Women, told through the tales of those who founded it, championed it, and made it flourish. When the city of Bessa undergoes a violent coup, its lazy, laissez-faire ruler, Bokhari Al-Bokhari, is replaced by the religious zealot Hakkim Mehdad. With little use for the pleasures of the flesh, Hakkim sends his predecessor&’s 365 concubines to a neighboring sultan as a gift. But when the new sultan discovers the concubines are harboring Al-Bokhari&’s youngest son—a child who might grow up to challenge his rule—he repents of his mercy and sends his soldiers to slaughter the seraglio down to the last woman and child. What he doesn&’t count on is a concubine trained in the art of murder—or the courage and fortitude of the women who will rise up with her to forge their own city out of the unforgiving desert. It&’s an undertaking beset with challenges: hunger and thirst, Hakkim&’s relentless hate, and the struggle to make a place for themselves in a world determined to underestimate and undermine them. Through a mosaic of voices and tales, we learn of the women&’s miraculous rise, their time of prosperity—and how they carried with them the seed of their own destruction. &“A thrilling tale.&” —Publishers Weekly &“A masterful, engaging and utterly fascinating story by three wonderful writers.&” —SFRevu.com &“The Steel Seraglio brings its alternate world of struggle, politics and magic very much to life.&” —Locus
