Synopsis:The first story begins with King Eurystheus being confronted by Hera who demands he find a task that will frustrate Hercules in his attempt to ascend to Olympus as a full-fledged god. She suggest he be sent to get the Bull of Minos. Eurystheus commands it so and Hercules heads off, but not before Hera afflicts him with a magic spell that robs him of his strength. Hercules is smacked to the ground by a girl and robbed as he was helpless on the ground. Hercules at last through sheer will overcomes the spell and gets aboard a ship and heads to Minos with the blessing of Poseidon. Before they get to Minos the ship has to make land for repairs and Hercules goes for a stroll. He meets up with Anteus, a giant warrior who challenges the Man-God. Hercules battles the giant only to discover that Anteus only grows stronger and larger when he makes contact with the ground. Finally Hercules knocks him out with a giant column to the noggin and then throws him into the sea. He joins up again with his mates and heads to Minos. King Minos hears of Hercules and sends the Minotaur to intercept him. After making landfall Hercules encounters the Minotaur but defeats him and makes the monster take him to the Bull of Minos. The Minotaur complies and Hercules then confronts the giant bull. He finds he cannot defeat the beast by hand but digs a pit, fills it with water and then gets the Bull into it where he at last can bind it and drag it back to the ship. He takes the Bull to Eurytheus and unleashes the brute to rampage through his court. The story ends with Hercules and Zeus exchanging warm thoughts.

I generally offer 2 shipping methods - the cheapest option DOES NOT include a tracking number. If you want tracking, the higher priced option is the CHEAPEST method that I can ship to your location with a tracking number.

For Canadian customers, the only method I offer includes tracking - if you DO NOT want or need a tracking number, let me know and I can quote you a cheaper option - Oversized Lettermail (unfortunately, not an option available for calculated shipping)

Also, please be aware that books shipped outside of Canada must pass thru customs, which could add additional delays and fees not covered by any free shipping offers. I will combine shipping costs on multiple items, as long as the items were won within 3 days of each other.
