This novelette appears with a dedication In Memoriam: RZ and represents a conscious effort to use his (Roger Zelazny's) manner and themes. It succeeds brilliantly. It's the story of a mostly-forgotten character from Greek mythology, the Titan called Typhoeus, whose purpose it was to destroy the newcomer Zeus who had taken over Mount Olympus. A volcanic eruption frees the Titan from his mountain prison and he bursts forth into our world to exact his revenge on Zeus. But Zeus is, to say the least, elusive. This story evokes the style and mood of Zelazny's best works (Lord of Light and so on) marvelously.
