The Bronze God of Rhodes is written as the memoirs of Chares of Lindos. **** Chares of Lindos was a Greek sculptor born on the island of Rhodes. A pupil of Lysippos, Chares eventually built the Colossus of Rhodes, now considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. **** These memoirs present the trials and tribulations (some of them hilarious) of the sculptor as he undertakes various projects and is forced into a number of adventures, particularly in Ptolemaic Egypt. **** This is the second historical novel that L. Sprague de Camp wrote (in order of writing), drawing upon his extensive and detailed historical knowledge of the period.
