Here’s the set-up:

In The Winnowing the goddesses of classical Greece return—or as they emphasize, reanimate. Far from being remote mythological beings, they appear in contemporary America to prevent a small cadre of scientists from upending the eternal cycle of life and death.

Highly cinematic and seditious in its approach toward morality, the story takes place in its own Eden, where goddesses consort with young nymphs in dramatic presentations, practice ancient sacrifice and hunt “spirit” deer. Midpoint through the story the narrator—the sole male—is transformed into a being with god-like powers. Sexual hunger, hubris, infatuation—these emotions and godlike intellect drive the key characters through a story that ends in conflagration, and finally, rebirth.

“A compelling and unique blend of contemporary thriller, romantic love story, Greek mythology and science fiction. The author turns a jeweler’s eye on to the juxtaposition of reality and mythology, magic and science, love and seduction, human and divine wisdom, truth and deception, fate and serendipity; all powered by a compelling narrative and finely drawn characters. If there is truly ancient magic loose in our contemporary world, that some of it is certainly in these pages.” —Bill Lambot, Author of What The Guide Said
