A fantasy adventure with elements of science fiction, Worthy of Prometheus delves into Greek mythology to tell the tale of Hephaestus, artisan and metal worker of the gods, who is about to take a risk that is literally worthy of the great Titan himself. Hephaestus is at the verge of introducing to humanity a game-changing invention that will alter the course of civilization forever.
But this gift to the human race will likely bring on the full wrath of Zeus. Terrified of punishment, Hephaestus nonetheless plods gallantly forward in secret, determined to improve the lot of mankind.
His wife Aphrodite, however, throws the proverbial wrench into the works by first spying on, then informing against, her crippled but brilliant husband. Confronted by Zeus for his crime, Hephaestus is meted out a punishment both novel and completely unexpected.
