When I can, though, I'm working on the third book in The New Aeneid Cycle, tentatively titled A Dragon at the Gate. I hope to have it finished in time for a 2015 release.(less)

Thank you for asking (and for reading)! Zeus Is Dead was originally published by a smaller, independent publisher called Booktrope. Being substantially smaller than the big publishing houses, they didn't publish hardcover copies, which are more expensive to produce.

I hope you enjoy the book! After a hiatus to work on the last book in my sci-fi series, I'm now moving forward on writing the Zeus Is Dead follow-up...(less)

Zeus Is Dead by Michael G. Munz

“This problem cannot be solved with baked goods!” “Well! Certainly not with that attitude.”
Michael G. Munz, Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure

“Not that it isn't sometimes fun to mention things for no reason. The platypus, for example, is not actually a terrestrial animal but a bioengineered probe designed to blend in amongst the planet’s other creatures, sent to Earth by aliens who did not do enough research. There’s no reason at all to mention that right now, but wasn’t it fun? Don’t make that face; it’s rude.”
Michael G. Munz, Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure

“Like Douglas Adams? Oh, now there’s a man that got it!”
