''[[ The Iliad With Zombies]]'' by White Rabbit Asylum
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Enunciability}}
* ''Synopsis'': [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Iliad with zombies]]. Set in the fifth year of the...[[AnachronismStew modern-day Trojan War]].
* ''Comments'': Flat-out brilliant. The author doesn't hesitate to poke fun at Homer's idiosyncrasies, like his frequent reminders that Athena has grey eyes. Every scene is hilarious and filled with great lines. I think the one highlighting Patrocles and Achilles' [[HoYay subtext-laden relationship]] deserves a special mention for making me do a SpitTake. Unfortunately, it seems to be a DeadFic.

[[Literature/TheAeneid ''The Aeneid'']] by Virgil
* Recommended by: {{Tropers/Skotos}}, @/SchizoTechnician
* ''Synopsis'': A Trojan guy called Aeneas escapes from Troy with his dad Anchises. They wander around places and kill lots of people. Oh, and it has something to do with Rome.
* ''Comments'': A bit obscure, not many people have heard of it. [[SmallReferencePools Except perhaps for Latin students...]]

''[[Literature/TheSongOfAchilles The Song of Achilles]]'' by Madeline Miller
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Animeg3282}}
* ''Synopsis'' An exiled boy named Patroclus meets a beautiful and fascinating boy named Achilles in the palace of Pthia. This book describes in beautiful prose how they grow into love, and how the prophecy and the Trojan War changes Achilles... and Patroclus. Great characterization - the ancient Greeks leap off the page.
* ''Comments'' - Achilles/Patroclus is canon in this book.
