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)

“There’s one thing you didn’t think of, Alecto!” he yelled. “I am a leaf on the wind! Watch how I soar!”

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