Revenge In Blue: Medusa Chronicles
by Leonard Charles Lee Collins
Revenge In Blue is the tragic story of Tauriansett and his quest for vengeance. It is a look at the history of mankind, a history tainted with hate. It is the story of Tauriansett, who is cursed by the gods of Olympus. He returns home to learn that his twin sister, Medusa, has been savagely murdered by an invader called Perseus.
It is thus that the stage is set. Along with his dear friend Mars, the god of war, and several village warriors, Tauriansett vows that his people will no longer live in fear of being hunted and their remains becoming trophy hangings.
This work is an attempt to examine the "truths" of "his-story." It is a look at the troubled relationships between man and man, man and God, and man within himself. Through the lives of the characters depicted, we see how they struggle with negative and positive relationships. It is thorough this external process, the eyes of others, that hopefully we too can deal openly and honestly with our fears, suspicions, and prejudices as related to the diversity amongst us.
