Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone can recommend some books on Greek mythology about the Gods and Demigods. Thanks

If you have a big bookstore near you go check out their bargain books isles. This information hasn't changed in years.

ETA: glancing at my bookshelves I have the mythology Bible and the fairy bible and my son must have taken it but I was so happy to get a HUGE mythology book for $5.99

Hesiod "Theogony and Works and Days"
Bullfinch's Mythology
The Homeric Hymns
The Iliad and Odyssey, of course.

Hesiod has a great rundown of Creation through the Olympians and their offspring. Concise. Lots of footnotes and endnotes in the old Penguin edition.

No problem. I almost had a BA in Classics. I just needed to take New Testament Greek. After a semester where I tried to take Middle Egyptian grammar and Coptic, I was burnt out.

Is there any particular lineage or deity you are researching?

Robert Graves on "The Greek Myths" is good. Two volumes in paperback.

Not really. Any God is fine

If you're gonna do it properly then get them in their native ancient greek and learn to translate them as like most things some parts will end up as its could mean x or y or even z depending so the missus tells me (she can roughly read ancient greek and is fluent in modern greek after a couple of ouzos
)
