Description

THE GODS ARE FUNNY.

Except when you piss them off.

Then they suck.

They really, really suck.

(Really).



Alexander Weiss discovers this tidbit when he inadvertently insults Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and she casts him away on a forgotten isle filled with statues.

Being marooned is bad enough, but the fact that the island is also the home of Euryale, elder sister to Medusa, makes the situation a touch worse. The only thing keeping Alex from being petrified is the fact that Euryale has taken a liking to the blundering mortal.

For now.

What follows next is a wild, adventurous tale filled with heroes, gods, monsters, love, and war that is nothing short of legendary.

If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, or girls with snakes, this is the novel for you. Grab your copy today!

Review quote

"Both heartbreaking and sidesplitting, The Gorgon Bride takes you on a whirlwind adventure through the dark and deadly domain of hilariously vengeful Greek gods." -- Nicky Drayden, Author of The Prey of Gods

"The Gorgon Bride is a fantastic, fun and fast-paced tale that explores the diverse cast of often neglected or outright overlooked characters in Greek mythology. This page-turner will keep you up all night for 'just one more chapter' till the very end." -- C.S. Taylor, Author of Nadya's War

"Galen Surlak-Ramsey puts a fun and modern twist on Greek mythology. These famous tales come to life with Alex in the middle of a feud among the gods...The Gorgon Bride is an adventure about bravery, self-discovery, and the power of love." (4.5/5 stars) -- Elizabeth Konkel, San Francisco Book Review

"The Gorgon Bride is, without doubt, clever and fun. There's this wry sense of humor that's quick on its feet...[and it is] perfect for mythology lovers and more." -- Utopia State of Mind

"Like humor that just a little sideways? Enjoy Greek myths? Looking for a book that's just pure entertainment? You should absolutely try The Gorgon Bride." -- Long and Short Reviews

"5 Stars. There is nothing better than completely getting lost in the world of fantasy...[and The Gordon Bride is one] I had a hard time putting it down." -- Kimberly Love, Author of You Taste Like Whiskey and Sunshine

(no monsters were harmed in the creation of this tale)
