This beautiful limited edition boxed set contains the stunningly designed new Penguin Epics series: twenty short tales of human adventure, legend and myth.

From the rip-roaring exploits of Alexander the Great, through Dante's terrifying description of the Descent into Hell, to the swashbuckling adventures of Sindbad, these works will take the reader on a journey through the most astonishing and heroic legends of the past four-and-a-half thousand years of literature.

@UrukRockCity All the ladies want to get it on now that I've slain the demon. But I must decline. I'm a clean man these days.
I just can't win with women. Before, nailing all the ladies was bad. Now I refuse to seduce, and the Gods send a giant bull to kill me?
