Summary

Don't mess with the gods. And if they mess with you? Run like hell . . . Myths and legends are full of stories of the transformation of humans and animals into other things through the magical intervention of the Gods. From better-known characters like Actaeon, the famous Greek huntsman who was doomed to become a stag forever chased by his own dogs, and Glaucus, the fisherman who became a fish himself, only to fall hopelessly in love with a naiad, to the Japanese tale of the Goddess Amaterasu, who created the first eclipse when she hid herself in a cave and more, this collection proves that all is never what it seems when it comes to the affairs of the Gods.
