Read full description of the books:



Vanaf Olympos Mons op Mars kijken Zeus en zijn goddelijke familie neer op immense veldslagen. Ze observeren - en beïnvloeden - de daden van Achilles, Hector, Odysseus en de botsende legers van Griekenland en Troje.
De Ilias-deskundige Thomas Hockenberry ziet toe op het verloop van de oorlog. Maar de muze die hij dient, heeft een nieuwe opdracht voor hem. Met 40ste-eeuwse technologie moet hij Olympos infiltreren, de goden bespieden... én uiteindelijk de godin Athene vernietigen.
Op een sterk veranderde Aarde zijn de Trojaanse beelden entertainment. Heldendom en strijd brengen opwinding in levens ontdaan van moed, ontberingen, pijn en zin. De avonturier Harman accepteert dat niet. Hij droomt van een verloren verleden en een ontsnapping aan zijn eigen onontkoombare gedoemde bestaan.
Tegelijkertijd zijn in de stralingsgordels van Jupiter vier intelligente machines in beweging gekomen om onderzoek te doen naar - en wellicht een einde te maken aan - de kwantumflux op een bergtop ver boven het Marsoppervlak.
Met Ilium begint een adembenemend epos over lotsbestemming, moed, vriendschap, plicht en dood op een heroïsche schaal. Het verhaal omspant meer dan 5000 jaar, gaat over fascinerende, levensechte personages en zit vol actie, passie en intelligentie. Dit meesterwerk van speculatieve fictie is misschien wel het beste dat Hugo Award-winnaar Dan Simmons
ooit geschreven heeft.

Read information about the author

Ebook Ilium read Online! Dan Simmons grew up in various cities and small towns in the Midwest, including Brimfield, Illinois, which was the source of his fictional "Elm Haven" in 1991's SUMMER OF NIGHT and 2002's A WINTER HAUNTING. Dan received a B.A. in English from Wabash College in 1970, winning a national Phi Beta Kappa Award during his senior year for excellence in fiction, journalism and art.

Dan received his Masters in Education from Washington University in St. Louis in 1971. He then worked in elementary education for 18 years—2 years in Missouri, 2 years in Buffalo, New York—one year as a specially trained BOCES "resource teacher" and another as a sixth-grade teacher—and 14 years in Colorado.

ABOUT DAN
Biographic Sketch

His last four years in teaching were spent creating, coordinating, and teaching in APEX, an extensive gifted/talented program serving 19 elementary schools and some 15,000 potential students. During his years of teaching, he won awards from the Colorado Education Association and was a finalist for the Colorado Teacher of the Year. He also worked as a national language-arts consultant, sharing his own "Writing Well" curriculum which he had created for his own classroom. Eleven and twelve-year-old students in Simmons' regular 6th-grade class averaged junior-year in high school writing ability according to annual standardized and holistic writing assessments. Whenever someone says "writing can't be taught," Dan begs to differ and has the track record to prove it. Since becoming a full-time writer, Dan likes to visit college writing classes, has taught in New Hampshire's Odyssey writing program for adults, and is considering hosting his own Windwalker Writers' Workshop.

Dan's first published story appeared on Feb. 15, 1982, the day his daughter, Jane Kathryn, was born. He's always attributed that coincidence to "helping in keeping things in perspective when it comes to the relative importance of writing and life."

Dan has been a full-time writer since 1987 and lives along the Front Range of Colorado—in the same town where he taught for 14 years—with his wife, Karen, his daughter, Jane, (when she's home from Hamilton College) and their Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Fergie. He does much of his writing at Windwalker—their mountain property and cabin at 8,400 feet of altitude at the base of the Continental Divide, just south of Rocky Mountain National Park. An 8-ft.-tall sculpture of the Shrike—a thorned and frightening character from the four Hyperion/Endymion novels—was sculpted by an ex-student and friend, Clee Richeson, and the sculpture now stands guard near the isolated cabin.
