Did Someone Request a Sumerian Pantheon?

I was reading reviews for Surrounding by Crimson and there were a few that wondered if there was somewhere they could find the Sumerian Pantheon. Who were good gods to rally behind and bad gods to hiss and boo at? There is a glossary in the back of the books but it doesn't draw those lines to keep from giving away spoilers to new readers of Sumeria's Sons.

For the blog tour for Dragon's Eye, I will be writing a series of guest posts that will help with the genealogy of the gods. I'll explain the Igigi War, who is the Simurgh, give the lore behind Mithra and his protector, Verethragna, and so many other things that will hopefully be helpful.

A couple of things to keep in mind, 1) I'm not a historian so the guest posts will be prefaced with a warning that I'm talking in generalities. 2) When the material was vague, I took liberties with the mythos--which shouldn't come as a surprise since the series was about children born to Enkidu and Gilgamesh. ^_^

Wish me luck because there are a lot of guest posts to write!

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
