The author of the Hyperion Cantos delivers his ambitious and groundbreaking follow-up companion to Ilium, the powerful epic praised as “state of the art science fiction. . . . A landmark novel” (Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine)
Intertwining Homeric themes of fate, courage, ceremony, friendship, duty, and death with nonstop action and adventure, Olympus begins with the assault by the victorious Trojans and Achaians on the home of the gods. The surviving heroes of Troy and their immortal allies bring the war into the solar system, beginning on the terraced slopes of Olympos Mons and soon expanding far into a post-human future almost beyond our understanding. A breathtaking work of high-concept science fiction, it will be eagerly anticipated by fans everywhere.
