"Pirodessey" you're free to hate, but "Vladiad" is near to my heart.
Like its Greek and Latin namesakes it's an incomplete episodic tale of
arms and heroism and love and death and gods and women warriors and
smart shoulder lizards (e.g., "Hannibal, homo vafer et magnus stelio").

I wonder if SKZB will turn to Dante next, having already done Milton.
