The first installment of a new saga is based on themes from The Iliad and The Tempest and places classical characters and gods in such settings as the Plains of Ilium, the terraformed oceans of Mars, and Jupiter space. Reprint.

HARPERCOLL

The Trojan War rages at the foot of Olympos Mons on Mars -- observed and influenced from on high by Zeus and his immortal family -- and twenty-first-century professor Thomas Hockenberry is there to play a role in the insidious private wars of vengeful gods and goddesses. On Earth, a small band of the few remaining humans pursues a lost past and devastating truth -- as four sentient machines depart from Jovian space to investigate, perhaps terminate, the potentially catastrophic emissions emanating from a mountaintop miles above the terraformed surface of the Red Planet.
