Ilium (novel) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (320 words)
Ilium is a novel by Dan Simmons that concerns the re-creation of the Iliad (possibly on an alternate-universe Earth) by post-humans who dwell on the Olympus Mons volcano on a future Mars, and who have taken on the roles of the Greek Gods.
Ilium is also thematically influenced by extropianism, as it is peopled with 'post-humans' of the far future.
Ilium is based on a literary approach like that of most of Ray Bradbury's work, but describes larger segments of society and broad historical events.
