Spoils of War - Aleksandr Voinov,  Raev Gray Short story following the adventures of Achilleus after his death, when Ares God of War takes a special interest in the greatest warrior of them all. The character of Achilleus is well-realised and obviously draws from his portrayal in Homer. Ares is also convincing, but as such, I did not find him attractive. I would have liked Patroklos to have featured more in this story but that is perhaps my sentimentality. Some nice writing and a quietly touching ending.
