Just wondering, I'm sure that there are more works out there on Alexander along with Arrian and Plutarch, ( Justin, Curtius???)

Will there be other reading groups reviewing other works on Alexander?

I,m not quite sure what you mean. Confused Do you mean is this reading group going to go on to other books or are you interested in reading groups on other forums?

Curtius book is a bit slow. I thought it was dragging so I stop reading it.
But there is some interesting stuff to read and to point out. He's deep in war but not what Alexander is all about. It's what I think. Confused

Philalexandros, the other main source in addition to those you mentioned is Diodoro Siculus and yes, we plan on commenting at the reading group other works besides Arrian and Plutarch. In fact, we have thought of such a long list of books to comment (the Iliad among them) that me may get old before finishing. Laughing
