    1. There seems to be a literary trend of late that involves taking the gods of ancient times and throwing them into a modern world. These once powerful deities have been forgotten and struggle to adjust to the mundane day-to-day existence afforded them in an increasingly secular world with little time for or interest in religion.

    4. Another fictional tale of what the Greek Gods would be up to in the present day. Gods behaving Badly is much better
