Gender Swapped Greek Myths by Karrie Fransman and Jonathan Plackett

Gender Swapped Greek Myths by Karrie Fransman and Jonathan Plackett


Imagine a world where seductive male sirens lure brave heroines to their death, where Icara and her mother fly too close to the sun, and where beautiful men are forced to wed underworld queens...


For thousands of years, Greek myths have been told and retold. In these stories, brutality and bravery are reserved for men, while women are wicked witches or helpless maidens.

Today, these myths continue to shape our ideas about justice, tragedy and what makes a hero's journey. Karrie and Jonathan love these stories, and have found a way to breathe new life into them by making one crucial change...


Following the incredible success of Gender Swapped Fairy Tales they have taken that same simple step.

They haven't rewritten the stories in this book. They haven't reimagined the endings, or reinvented characters. What they have done is switch all the genders.

You'll be enchanted by the refreshing world this swap creates - and thunderstruck by the new characters you're about to discover.
