Homer’s Odyssey is often claimed to be the great founding work of western literature. Three thousand years on, the story of Greek hero, Odysseus, and his epic journey home to Ithaca after the Trojan War continues to inspire and enthral: shipwrecks and sirens, revenge and seduction, gods and mythical
creatures, it’s got it all.

A Midlands Odyssey is a collection of tales from the Odyssey, commissioned by Writing West Midlands and published by Nine Arches Press. Each tale has been set in the Midlands, and given new life by local writers.
