I think I first found Dan Simmon's novel Ilium in the lending library of the Utsunomiya International Center. A number of images stayed with me, like the giant gold hands holding back the Atlantic from the Mediterranean basin. I would have preferred a picaresque exploration of the crazy landscape (with lots of monsters and lunatics), instead the central mystery is mostly resolved with no real surprises. Still, there are some interesting bits and pieces worth borrowing.
