These stories were the foundation of what became my Greece Travel Guides. I wrote the stories The Sifnos Monster, Sifnos Summer Basketball, and King of the Kamakis in the mid eighties and they became the basis of my Guide
to Sifnos, which led to my writing of the Athens Survival Guide, and the rest of the Greece Travel Guides. Some are excerpted from my book Spearfishing in Skatahori which I wrote I believe
in 1992 or 1993. These excerpts also evolved into the various Greek Island Guides and my Guide to Greek Food. My Athens Survival Guide evolved out of Strollering Through Athens, which I combined with the information I had written for Eddie Fogler when he was an assistant coach of the North Carolina Tarheels
basketball team and they were going to Athens to play in a tournament in 1983. If you like these stories please share them with your friends by using the Facebook and Google+ buttons at the bottom and the top of the page. You can also e-mail Matt with any questions, comments, film or book offers.
