Trajan's War is a tale of unrequited love, proud honor, unquestioned obedience and broken trust, amid the clash of swords, chariots and Roman soldiers willing to fight to the death against the Dacians as word of their pending invasion spreads across the Roman Empire. Casius, along with other young men from their village, join Emperor Trajan in his quest to crush the Dacian's forces before they cross the borders into Roman territory with the zeal of true warriors. During the course of the battles, what the enemy Casius comes to fear the most isn't the Dacians whose swords pierce his flesh but himself when he sees the death of his own innocence and the life of his own love in peril because of it. Karen Mayberry began her writing career after attending college late in life. In her mid thirties while she attended Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky, to obtain her teaching degree for middle and high school, she successfully published her first novel, Scilia, which was soon followed by Salina and now Trajan's War.

Over and again, the aged seeress Tamis scried all the possible tomorrows. In every one, dark forces threatened Greece; terrible evil was poised to reenter the world. The future held only one hope: a half-caste Spartan boy, Parmenion. So Tamis made it her mission to see that Parmenion would before the deadliest warrior in the world -- no matter what the cost. Raised to manhood in Sparta, bullied and forced to fight for his life every day, Parmenion had no notion of the unseen dimensions of magic and mystery that shaped his fate. He grew in strength and cunning. His military genius earned him the title Strategos in Sparta. His triumphs for the city of Thebes made him a hero. And finally his fate led him to the service of Philip of Macedon. As Tamis had foreseen, Parmenion's destiny was tied to the Dark God, to Philip, and to the yet-unborn Alexander. All too soon the future was upon them. Parmenion stood poised to defeat evil -- or to open the gate for the Dark God to reenter the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In this reworking of Aeschylus' Oresteia, Klytemnestra and Elektra face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo testimonies delivered in Apartheid's wake throughout South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Aeschylus' chorus is replaced by Xhosa tribeswomen, who bring grace and humanity through their ancient art of split tone singing. Molora (the Sesotho word for 'ash') is an examination of vengeance, and the breaking of its cycles by the everyman.

IGNORANCE of all that is foreign has always been one of France's chief blemishes, one of the chief causes of her disasters. This vice of our national education we are at present seeking to remedy: we are making up our minds to let our children learn the languages of our neighbors; but, if it is effectually to benefit us in our politics, our knowledge of foreign things must not be limited to those nations only who actually touch our boundaries. Like ancient Greece, modern Europe forms one family, the members of which, even in the midst of their quarrels, keep mutually dependent on one another. The interests of external politics are common to all; not much less so are those of internal politics...

Breathtaking in its historical and geographical scope, this book provides a sweeping examination of the construction of male and female homosexualities, stressing both the variability of the forms same-sex desire can take and the key recurring patterns it has formed throughout history. "[An] indispensable resource on same-sex sexual relationships and their social contexts. . . . Essential reading." —Choice "[P]romises to deliver a lot, and even more extraordinarily succeeds in its lofty aims. . . . [O]riginal and refreshing. . . . [A] sensational book, part of what I see emerging as a new commonsense revolution within academe." —Kevin White, International Gay and Lesbian Review
