The Myths are Coming
In a unique feat of publishing, new stories based on ancient myths written by authors from around the world will be in stores in 35 countries simultaneously this October. The Myths, a project spearheaded by Scots publisher Cannongate, told authors to pick a myth from any country and re-tell it in 30,000 words. Margaret Atwood, Donna Tart, Viktor Pelevin, Jeanette Winterston and David Grossman have already signed on and more authors are in the wings, says the timesonline.
