    The Roman Eagle remains a mystery to this writer. The Golden Fleece reference brings to mind three different experiences. The first is Biblical. In the Book of Judges () it is recorded that Gideon has been directed to enter into battle with the Midianites, Amalekites, and the people of the g: cowhides. In Greek mythology, the Golden Fleece (Greek: Χρυσόμαλλο δέρας, Chrysómallo déras) is the fleece of the golden-woolled, winged ram, Chrysomallos, which was held in Colchis. The fleece is a symbol of authority and kingship. It figures in the tale of the hero Jason and his crew of Argonauts, who set out on a quest for the fleece by order of King Pelias, in order to place Jason.

    "Golden Fleece" was written years before, while he wrote hard SF stories in a more traditional way. I found it after reading an interview he gave, forget where, when he spoke of his earlier works. All this is preface to a rave review. This book reminds me of the best of hard SF space opera, with a sound background of science fact and /5(40). This book explores the epic history of a colorful myth and probes the most ancient origins of the quest for the Golden Fleece—a quest that takes us to the very dawn of Greek religion and its close relationship with Near Eastern peoples and g: cowhides.

    Jason made known his message to the Colchian king, Aeetes, who consented to give up the golden fleece if Jason would yoke to the plough two fire-breathing bulls with brazen feet, and sow the teeth of the dragon which Cadmus had slain, and from which it was well known that a crop of armed men would spring up, who would turn their weapons against.   The NOOK Book (eBook) of the Golden Fleece by Muriel Spark at Barnes & Noble.
