FROM THE BACK COVER:
DAY OF THE MINOTAUR
In DAY OF THE MINOTAUR American readers will at last have an opportunity to enjoy the imaginative genius of Thomas Burnett Swann, a writer whose works have been compared with the marvel-packed sagas of J.R.R. Tolkien, the sweeping adventure-tales of Mary Renault, and the sheer story-telling magic of Jack Vance and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
This is the novel of Eunostos, the last of an ancient and powerful race of bull-men, of the Achaean conqueror Ajax, and the beautiful Thea, known as the Beast Princess. You will not soon forget there characters, nor the unusual Bears of Artemis, the treacherous, bee-like creatures called Thriae, and the rest of the humans and non-humans who come to final battle in the thunderous War of the Beasts.
Here is a world of wonder and excitement that will grip your imagination from first page to last.
