Fit For The Gods Anthology

Greek mythology has proven itself to be of perennial interest. From reprints of classics like the D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths to retellings of the Iliad, Odyssey, and the Aeneid by everyone from Ursula K. Le Guin to Madeline Miller, writers are continually fascinated and readers are continually compelled by these stories. But while we know today that the Greco-Roman world was international and diverse in racial, ethnic, and sexual identities, this is hardly reflected in the retellings we have. Readers of all backgrounds are actively looking for inclusive, broad-ranging, cross-genre retellings; it’s time to give them their favorite myths with a new twist.

Edited by Jenn Northington and S. Zainab Williams, Fit For the Gods will shine new light on these beloved myths, and bring much-needed representation to them. Our editor is Anna Kaufman at Vintage, and we’re represented by Kate McKean at Howard Morhaim Literary Agency.
