I'm still reading Nairn's "Greek Through Reading" anthology. Right now, I'm reading some excerpts from Lucian: "Voyage to the Moon" and "Sea Monsters" from Vera Historia. These are downright bizarre little excerpts that seem to feature islands floating in space and men flying on vultures.
Has anyone around here read Vera Historia? I'm not finding a lot of background information on the Internet about this. Do people ever read this as a stand-alone work?
