This isn't an exhaustive list by any means, but you'll probably enjoy most of them if you like Greek stuff. Helena Schrader and Gary Corby in particular have interesting sites. If you enjoy the ancient world, don't overlook them. You'll find Schrader's information on Sparta engaging at this site. Corby's novels are mysteries set in Ancient Hellas. Both have wonderful blogs .


I've not bothered with reviews of the novels to the left. I'll leave it to Amazon's readers. No reason to re-invent the wheel. Feel free to contact me with your favorite. I'll post it for you.
