The Hellenic Traders series is a series of historical novels written by Harry Turtledove and published under the the pseudonym H.N. Turteltaub, originally published by Tor between 2001 and 2004 . The series is set during the Hellenistic Period of Ancient Greece from 310 BCE through 307 BCE, just over a decade after the death of Alexander the Great. The central characters, Menedemos, an obscure historical person, and Sostratos, a fictional cousin of Menedemos', sail their ship against the backdrop of the plots and political scheming of the heirs of Alexander.
After Tor allowed the series to go out of print, PhoenixPick has acquired the rights. The series will be reprinted, under Turtledove's own name, over the course of 2013 through 2015.
