Medusa Gorgonis
by Ro Artland

The story of Medusa Gorgonis is partly based on the classical Medusa, one of the three Gorgon sisters, and Greek mythology. It depicts the untold story of Medusa: the brave girl who becomes a powerful leader of women warriors, the monstrous Serpent Priestess and outlaw who serves justice with the power of her gaze. Replete with graphic epic battle and martial art scenes, romance, and dramatic poetry, Medusa Gorgonis will appeal to an adult readership interested in mythology and classical Greek drama, as well as symbolism and women’s self-empowerment.

Ro Artland is a Canadian writer, poet, and artist. Her writing is an attempt to look mercilessly behind the masks of human complexity and bring out what is genuinely good, beautiful, and timeless. In her fiction, Ro Artland dramatizes worlds that blend ancient with modern, real with unreal, poetic with prosaic. Ro Artland has published in several Canadian and US magazines and anthologies. This is her second book published by Friesen Press.
