    1. There seems to be a literary trend of late that involves taking the gods of ancient times and throwing them into a modern world. These once powerful deities have been forgotten and struggle to adjust to the mundane day-to-day existence afforded them in an increasingly secular world with little time for or interest in religion. As an early devotee of Edith Hamilton, one might assume that these have been heady times for me. Unfortunately, this genre has been kind of a mixed bag. There's been the g [...]

    2. Since the beginning of time, Zeus and Hera have been King and Queen of the Gods: greatest of the Olympians and supreme overseers of mortal beings.

    4. Another fictional tale of what the Greek Gods would be up to in the present day. Gods behaving Badly is much better

    5. Fun enough, but I got bored. It was having too much fun being sassy and cool. To be fair, I probably would have finished it if it hadn't been due back at the library.
