Riordan Intro reissue | Movie tie-in edition

 

Tales of the Greek Heroes is a collection of ancient Greek myths written by Roger Lancelyn Green with an introduction written by Rick Riordan. The book was originally published in 1958 under the longer title, Tales of the Greek Heroes: Retold From the Ancient Authors (without Rick Riordan's introduction), and has been in print since.

In his introduction, Rick Riordan mentions that this book was one of his first introductions to Greek mythology when he was a child, and that he probably wouldn't have written the Percy Jackson series if he hadn't have read it.
