    Summary

    In Book 23 of Homer's Iliad, the ghost of Patroclus returns to beg the grieving Achilles to bury him, so he can move onward into the Underworld. In the three "books" of this novella, Patroclus' experiences in the days following his death are described from his point of view, as he seeks to learn what he must do to move on, and builds an unusual friendship with Charon, the ferryman of Hades.

    Summary

    She went first to the hives of Silence and requested from them their beeswax. Then she found where the clay men had hidden their newfound fire, and took from their hearth the smallest burning scrap, which she used to light a wick. As the wax melted down it, its layers dripped and hardened upon themselves, and when it lengthened into a shape she could carry in her arms, she the Night bent her head and kissed life into it. This became the infant she called Charon, half-melted and smoking Promethean fire with every breath.

    At the end of this recounting, she tilted her head and asked politely, Is this not how you have children?

    Uh, no, said Persephone.

    Summary

    Ares has seen many, many wars, and even more fights, and he has never once witnessed a single soul able to compare to Death’s intensity when forced to take up his sword. Ares has considered wars only for the joy of seeing Thanatos defend souls from the Keres many, many times.

    He does not, because he understands fighting is what Thanatos does last, and he quite likes Nyx’s son.

    Summary

    Zagreus hardly sleeps anymore, but when he does, he finds his body does remember: all the ways Meg has killed him, the whip wrapped around his ankle, her heel against his throat. Thanatos’s hands cradling the back of his head, dragging him gently down.

    It’s almost lonely in the house. They don’t touch him then.
