Pankration by Peter Katsionis is a great read. Story of Dioxuppus.
 
I also read Manfredi's Spartan, it was ok, not bad, not great. His Alexander Trilogy was much better.
 
I lost my copy of Gates of Fire so I have to get another.

Are there any other recommendations for Ancient Greece, Byzantine and old Scandinavian tales? Stephen Lawhead was great for some of this.

I have Gods and Legions in Spanish, but haven't read it.  I also have Ten Thousand and The Last King in English, but I've only read the latter.  I loved it.

My favourite historical fiction is by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. She has a series named «The Founding». I`m just loving it.
Also a very special to me is Forsythe Saga. Speaking about the great family story.
BUt my all time favourite always will be - of mice and men.

You should have first listed the author's name and that the story is set in the depression years of the 30's.

It would also be nice if you expounded as to why it's your "all time favorite", here and not on your blog. Which I realize your trying to promote.
