Description

First off I want to ask this. What do you imagine when you think The Trojans? Okay this is question one has to ask when you think about The Iliad as the era was named for Helena of Troy. The Iliad this presentation was done for those in a subculture where they almost overlook the literary end of things where Iron Maiden vowed to merge heavy metal and literature and they were the first to do this. Then Metallica, Anthrax, and Megadeth did this second. Heavy Metal in 1986 was more partying and sex in the mainstream while the underground always had that literary aspect. So when you think this era -- electricity was nonexistent of a time of Kings, many Gods, epic wars and bloody at that when steel blades impale flesh. The Bible during that era would been the Book of Samuel to the Jewish folk and Christians (this was a time of the Old Testament.) Christians would try to avoid discussion of literature because it doesn't take them to the winning of souls. As more so to mind, The King James Version Only and the Prosperity Heresy would come about. Pacione thought of a novel way to show the masses he was much different than both of those two faith spectrum's how does one define itchy ears in that end of things. Itchy ears when they say one is full of shit, or one where their intelligence is insulted on a regular basis. Author Nickolaus Pacione performs the introduction as he played a documentary for Veronica Freeman of Benedictum as she was in the hospital. "The introduction he was cracking a joke about how she tells him to pretend he's on twitter -- the joke goes this book he introduces how twitter was nonexistent in 750 B.C. the era of the Library of Alexandria." This was a birthday present for three of his local far-off friends in Chicago. The three who yelled at him for doing too much when he was sick in 2006 when he came down with pneumonia. He said in the introduction he wanted to do this introduction and edit The Iliad for print on demand. Since he was with Lulu.com he wanted to do an edition of it. "More so almost since he started Lake Fossil Press or Broken Mindframe Books." This presentation is translated by Samuel Bulter as Reed of Two Ton Anvil and Pacione noticed together hanging on Fashion Bomb's page as this writer was responsible for two science fiction stories of a Utopian nature as sheep were named for this novel. He's known for technological singularity as Wikipeda.org pointed out. So this presentation was edited and presented by Nick for a generation that is spoiled by movies, TV and pop culture as this book written in Greek back in 750 B.C. had found it's way into pop culture in the modern era as it was in our landscape for years. Nickolaus Pacione in his short stories will say Greek and Roman Mythology had sometimes been the root of his horror stories; it's also as a hallmark as inventing the Storm Menace style of horror or doing Meta-fictional takes on Gothic Horror as he did with "The Room Mate" and his 2014 release. The Fandom Writer II, The Fandom Writer and some of his stories in Dirty Black Winter you see references to Greek Mythology. Pacione in the introduction mentions that Greek Mythology references in his Gothic Horror fiction is deeply rooted and goes back his years when he was 20 years old when he was referencing the Shades of Hades so what is Pacione doing with this introduction he tried to play down his darker traits when he wrote this but the introduction does show his humor a bit. Pacione used many public domain artworks done within the era of the translations of this -- as this was translated a few times to English. This version was translated by a Science Fiction writer from the 19th Century it's a guess when he did this but it had to be later in life he did tshow more

About Homer 750 B C

Nickolaus Pacione is the author of six books and nine anthologies. Who learned how to be a historian from the webmaster of http: //nolifetilmetal.com as he became a historian in heavy metal as Scott Waters did. He, "with his own testimony, " shows where heavy metal and literature intersect quite often where he learned how to do this from listening to Metallica and Iron Maiden. This presentation of The Iliad he did is for those who are home schooled who normally wouldn't have access to a museum or or able to get science in a Christian classroom. As he just reissued Issue Five of his mag. As Ancient Greece started the movement with science back then and Philosophy. This is his version of Open Air Philosophy as the joke goes. Street Preachers didn't like interacting with him because of his use of asking hard questions then editing their tracts for typo-graphical errors. Very cerebral in nature; so why not do a presentation of The Iliad. One can look him up on ("his author's page") fb.com: napacione -- he doesn't beg people to "like" his page but encourage them to join the discussions when they do. As he's one of the admins on in the recent years, fb.com: metalmania720 ("where he encourages discussions of humanities." His page is tagged when he's posting on there.) The other admins do get nervous when he gets really intelligent and joke, "I don't think this kid could really get drunk because it would drive him batty. Coming up with weird fiction and publishing these anthologies -- if he was drunk he'd go insane." Pacione writes predominately in horror (Modern Gothic Horror is his specialty.) Sometimes writes science fiction as well as he was writing since 1990 in horror, and 2004 with science fiction. Pacione is one of the few admins who is the historian of the group where ex-CoF backing vocalist started a one sided feud with him. So every time she a Google search of her given name, Sarah Jane Ferridge, will find The Iliad in the results. This is more or less telling her something as she's trying to separate heavy metal from literature as Pacione being born on James Hetfield's birthday. He tried to explain to some there is a sense of responsibility that heavy metal got him reading books -- and writing short stories. So this is him giving back what he got from heavy metal over the years.show more
