PERCY JACKSON’S GREEK GODS Set for August 2014 Release

pj-greek-gods-cover

Sure, for those that are caught up on The Heroes of Olympus series, we’ll still have to wait until October 2014 for the final book of the series to be released.  But lo and behold, a couple of months before that, Rick Riordan’s PJ-related side project, Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, will be available in August 2014.

A quick update on Percy Jackson\’s Greek Gods, my collection of original Greek myths told from Percy Jackson\’s point of view. The US release date has been set for Tuesday, August 19, the day after Percy\’s birthday! Book releases are always slated for Tuesdays, for sales and marketing reasons I do not pretend to understand, so that\’s the closest date we could make it. No word on release dates in other countries yet. I don\’t usually get that information, but if I do, I will let you know.

Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

Today, Rick Riordan released the cover to a companion novel to the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series.

From Rick Riordan’s Website:

Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection.

A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously? Because I don’t need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week. 

So begins Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic–and sarcastic asides–to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his personal take on a who’s who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not hold back. “If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that.”

Dramatic full-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume–a must for home, library, and classroom shelves–as stunning as it is entertaining.
