Announcement: I wrote about the Hydra on Mythic Scribes

Continuing my Magical Creatures for Magical Worlds series is my latest article, the Hydra. Pop over and check it out.

This was quite a fun article to write because the research mostly involved reading the Labours of Heracles, and quite frankly, Heracles doesn’t come across as the smartest man in the room – especially in how he deals with the Hydra. Though I would say his intellect has certainly been inherited by his nephew, who joins him on this particular Labour.
