Herc

Herc
$30.00
A queer revisionist retelling of the story of Hercules, for fans of The Song of Achilles, A Thousand Ships and Ariadne.

This should be the story of Hercules: his twelve labours, his endless adventures... everyone's favorite hero, right?

Well, it's not.

This is the story of everyone else:
  • Alcmene: Herc's mother (She has knives everywhere)
  • Hylas: Herc's first friend (They were more than friends)
  • Megara: Herc's wife (She'll tell you about their marriage)
  • Eurystheus: Oversaw Herc's labours (He never asked for the job)
  • His friends, his enemies, his wives, his children, his lovers, his rivals, his gods, his victims

  • It's time to hear their stories.

    Told with humour and heart, Herc gives voice to the silenced characters, in this feminist, queer (and sometimes shocking) retelling of classic Hercules myth.
