Troy and Chapman in order to move forward yet again to Poul Anderson and SM Stirling:
Virgil's Aeneid is a sequel to Homer's Iliad and Odyysey;
John Keats compared reading Chapman's Homer to discovering a new planet (here);
James Joyce wrote Ulysses, named after the hero of the Odyysey;
Arthur C Clarke wrote 2001: A Space Odyysey;
Poul And Karen Anderson's Gratillonius liked the Aeneid but not Homer;
Poul Anderson's Dominic Flandry refers to Ilion (Troy);
SM Stirling pays respectful homage to Homer and Anderson, as I will shortly show.
