Episode 2.9: The Labors of Lilith Maugs
The Author Says:
One of my favorite of the Greek legends is the Labors of Heracles. I was always impressed by Heracles’s diligence, even if things did not end particularly well—but that is only what you expect from a Greek myth. I have also long harbored interest in demons, particularly how they are portrayed in fantasy. Because “demon” has become so widely used to describe a wide range of monsters, I felt it was time to give the term some definition in my own stories. And although I have tried to keep these stories fairly self-contained, the careful reader will probably want to have read The Amazing Mages before beginning on this one, though it is not strictly necessary.
