INTRODUCTION GODS & MORTALS Hesiod the fabled Father of History said it was the poets Homer and Hesiod who provided the first definitive list of who the old Gods were, where they came from and what they did. In Iliad, Homer related the Olympian gods as an extended divine family who resided on Mount Olympus: Zeus, his wife Hera, and their children: Ares, Hephaestus, Apollo and Athena. Homer’s epics Iliad & Odyssey told the story of a Greek – or Achaean – war mission to Troy city, some five hundred years even before Homer’s time, and whose destruction was insisted on by goddesses Hera and Athena.
King Priam of Troy blamed the Gods, not his idiot son’s action of taking someone else’s wife, for the destruction of his city. It is convenient to blame the Gods for what comes our way. But what we humans do and why we do it, is just as much up to us. Choices matter. A ticket to Hades is a challenging consequence. There is beauty in the deep, and oblivion delivered in the most spectacular way. But if you have a spark worth saving, then the Lord of the Underworld may let you return. Come on down. Hades’ Gate is opened.
