About the Author:

Roger Lancelyn Green was born in 1918 and lived in Oxford and at his family home in Cheshire, which the Greens had owned for more than 900 years. He loved storytelling and was fascinated by traditional fairy tales, myths and legends from around the world. He was a professional actor, a librarian and a teacher. His retellings include Egyptian, Greek and Norse legends, plus a retelling of Robin Hood. He also wrote many books for adults, including a biography of his friend C. S. Lewis, creator of the The Chronicles of Narnia. Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987.

Michael Myers is an illustrator, visual designer, and 2d/3d animator who has developed graphics for mobile devices, online games, and even t-shirts, many of which were created using his pixel art technique. He lives in Ames, Iowa and is the Creative Director at Drawsgood, Inc. View his artwork at www.drawsgood.com and follow him on Twitter @drawsgood.

From AudioFile:

While by no means the most scholarly collection of Greek myths and legends, Roger Lancelyn Green's retellings are among the most accessible, particularly to younger listeners, while retaining the poetic quality of the ancient texts. TALES OF THE GREEK HEROES recounts the origins of the Greek pantheon, the adventures of Perseus, the seven labors of Heracles, and the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts. Edward Lewis reads with a clean precision, but some listeners may find his style stiff and pedantic. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
