AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 12/07/2004 10:00:00 PM ----- BODY: Booknotes - My brother let me borrow "Ilium" by Dan Simmons. It's the strangest book I've read, and I cannot put it down. Greek gods, the Iliad, Shakespeare-studying robots...fascinating and compelling. Next on the list...Tom Wolfe's newest. Having worked at a university, I'm looking forward to seeing what Wolfe has to say about the academic environment. --------
