Abstract:

"Heroes--from Oberon to Robin Hood, from Odysseus to King Arthur--everyone loves reading about their adventures, and many probably dream about meeting these 'heroes' in real life ... or actually becoming a hero. But what are these larger than life legends really like when they are not off slaying dragons, beheading giants, or rescuing damsels in distress? Are they kind, thoughtful, and fun to be around? The Trouble with Heroes is all about the other side of heroism. From what it's like to be Hercules' wife, to the trials of H.P. Lovecraft's housekeeper, to the perils of being a giant ape's girlfriend, to the downside of dating a shapeshifter, to getting too up close and personal with the Greek gods, here are the behind-the-scenes stories that give heroism some entirely new twists ..."--Page 4 of cover.
