The Adventures of Athena and Odysseus


The story of a homecoming to Ithaca, set in Ancient Greece.

When Athena learns that Odysseus is in trouble, she has to go and help him... But will she make it in time? God meets mortal in this charming children's book. Both gods and humans develop as events unfold. When Odysseus tries to slay his last fleeing enemies, Athena opens his eyes to read what Father Zeus has written in the sky: that human kind must learn human kindness.

When Zeus gets promotion and tries to control the British weather as well as the sunny Greek sky, He learns just how surprising this Universe can be. But however far She may stray from Her blue Mediterranean, or however near She may be, Athena will always keep a soft spot for that wily hero from the little island of Ithaca.

N.G. Maroudas

Nicolas George Maroudas was born in South Africa, of Greek father and Anglo-South-African mother, in 1934. He met his wife Alice, a Polish holocaust survivor, on a Chemical Engineering course at Witwaterstrand University in 1950. They settled in London, had three children, obtained PhDs and entered research careers in Cell Biology and Biomedical Engineering. He is now retired and lives in Lower Galilee, Israel. He is an agnostic who blunders around in a dazed state of wonder and gratitude at the marvelous privilege of going through a life. He has published a few scientific papers and devised an accurate hexadecimal notation for musical overtones to simplify key relationships. His hobby is coding classical music in this notation for high resolution digital replay.
