michaelmink's message reminded me of something you might enjoy. I'm reading a book by Eric Flint and Dave Freer, Pyramid Scheme. The plot has a mysterious pyramid land in the Regenstein Library at the University of Chicago and send nearby people straight into mythological pasts. The story I've read so far has one group, including a professor of mythology, sent into the Odyssey just as they're trying to get away from Scylla and Charybdis. The professor is the only one who speaks ancient Greek, and he learns he's not doing it too well...

Check it out. It looks like a good read.
