A science fiction/ fantasy master presents the story of Latro, an ancient Greek soldier, who has suffered a head wound. Because he cannot remember from day to day, Latro describes events in a scroll. His senses, intensified by his injury, enable him to see many things, including gods circulating among mortals. Verna delivers a full-voiced narration with subtle vocal characterizations. His voice is a gentle baritone, slightly higher for a young girl, slowed into oiliness for the snake god. Like most modern fantasies, this includes scenes of violence: child sacrifice, castration, others. A masterful work for a wide audience. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 92]
