Olympos is a science fiction novel by the award winning author Dan Simmons. It's strange how something good, can be turned by it's association with something bad. I really loved the first volume in Dan Simmons Ilium/Olympos saga. I really did. But after having read the second volume Olympos, it's hard for me to remember what exactly was so great about it. In other words Olympos stinks, and the stench is so bad that it reaches backwards in time and taints the Ilium volume.
