Graphic novel by Nikos Dachris of the classic play by Sophocles (5th c. BCE.), also known as “Oedipus the King”, “Oedipus the Tyrant” and “Oedipus Tyrannus”.
King Oedipus pledges to save Thebes from a plague sent by the gods. His instruments will be sharp reason and state authority. But he is haunted by an old prophecy and his path is leading him to a tragic destiny.
The adaptation focuses on the dialogues flowing in the simplest possible language while keeping close and faithful to the original script. The artwork is original, gripping and atmospheric, employing depth, light, colour and detail in good measure for a genuine drama set in ancient Greece.
Independent publication redetermining the relevance of ancient Greek legacy to modern civilisation by making Tragedy available in comics for the contemporary explorers of mythology beyond the study of classics at school.
Genre legends Gwyneth Jones and Melissa Scott were ecstatic over Fates and Furies.
Visions of the fate of our flesh, set in the far future and in our own bitter times, all informed by ancient Hellas: I think I liked the alien migrants in modern Greece best, but I loved all these stories. A very fine cover too!
This is an extraordinary collection. Myths old and new sing to readers, drawing them ever deeper into a world deeply informed by the Hellenic world. My only regret is that I would gladly have read more of every one of them.
Fates and Furies is available on Amazon and on the Candemark and Gleam website, where a purchase brings along the full digital bundle (PDF, Epub and Mobi, with the PDF containing the usual bells and whistles) . All C&G ebooks are DRM-free. The stunning mosaic that graces the collection’s cover, embedded in the deep sea-blue background created by Alan Caum, perfectly distills the collection’s essence in both appearance and backstory.
Christine Lucas lives in Greece with her husband and a horde of spoiled animals. A retired Air Force officer and mostly self-taught in English, she has had her work appear in many SFF magazines, including Daily Science Fiction, Pseudopod, and Nature: Futures. Her stories appear in highly-claimed anthologies; among them Ellen Datlow’s Tails of Wonder and Imagination (“Dominion”, Night Shade, 2010), and Athena Andreadis’ The Other Half of the Sky (“Ouroboros”, Candlemark & Gleam, 2013). She was a finalist for the 2017 WSFA award; her story “Χίλια Μύρια Κύματα” (“A Thousand Waves from Home”, included for the first time in English in Fates and Furies, translated by Christine herself) won the 2017 Φανταστιcon Award; and she’s working on her first novel. You can visit her at Of (Wo)man and Mau.
Pickle can’t seem to get any sleep during the night, so she tiptoes into the kitchen for a midnight snack. But the others are very noisy downstairs and her craving doesn’t seem to go away. Will she figure it out with the help of Cherry or is it a deeper issue?
When Aphrodite sends her off to a sex convention in Canary Wharf, Eudora makes the flight and shows up. But will she manage to fulfill the terms of her contract, when she has nothing entertaining to show people, when an unusual Santa is hogging all the attention and when her own insecurities drag her down?
This is a Christmas special of the Influencer book series.

Oversized, panoramic hardback graphic novel Sons of Chaos, exposes the quiet agenda of Ali Pasha, the Ottoman Empire’s most brutal dictator, and how his fascination with a young Greek boy led to the rise of one of Greece’s most revered heroes— and a war that would define the Western World.
An immersion into the moments we never see, and the self-serving motivations that convince a nation that violence is warranted, and that war is necessary.
In honor of the 200 Year anniversary of the Greek War for Independence, Sons of Chaos presents the story of 1821 through the eyes of Marcos Botsaris, the son of a respected Greek leader taken prisoner as a child and raised within the dungeons of history’s most infamous Ottoman Pasha, known as the “Napoleon of the East”— Ali Pasha of Ioannina. Over the next ten years, the bond formed between them would define history.
The Greek War for Independence was a conflict that quietly influenced the entire world and participants ranged from the London Stock Exchange to celebrities such as Lord Byron, as well as average impassioned Americans willing to transport themselves across the Atlantic to fight alongside the Greeks.
This conflict was the pinnacle of what we now know as the Romantic Period and yet, it’s a war that few know ever existed outside of the Greek and Turkish cultures; a war that stimulated the fall of the Ottoman Empire and shaped Western Civilization as we now know it, and in a sense is being fought today under a different heading amongst today’s political world leaders.
Hundreds of years of Ottoman rule gave the Greeks a reason to fight. Marcos Botsaris gave them a leader.
