Olympos and Ilium by Dan Simmons.
Quoted for truth. An epic SF duology featuring practically all the characters of the Illiad. Achilles and Odysseus in particular are great characters in the novels.
So if Hyperion/Fall of Hyperion is right now among my top 5 scifi books ever, you say I should read Olympos and Ilium as well?
Dan Simmons is sadly another writer that went crazy after 9/11.

Ilium was good. Everything fell apart in Olympos and he played to some of the worst right wing muslim cliches.
Lex Luthor is a true American hero.
