'The Little Helliad' is a reference to 'The Little Iliad,' a collection of lesser-known Iliad vignettes and tales about Iliad-related characters. This book takes its inspiration and some of its structure from this ancient, wonderful source. The Little Helliad is one of the best of the Heroes in Hell books. Homer, author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, takes a trip through Hell - his very own Odyssey. A wonderful book full of memorable characters and the unique perspective of the Morris's Homer.
