''Get Lost, Odysseus!'' is Book X in Kate [=McMullan=]'s ''Literature/MythOMania'' series, published in 2014. In a retelling of ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', Hades debunks Zeus' boasts of helping Odysseus return to Ithaca from the Trojan War.
----
!!This book provides examples of:
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Hades believes that Odysseus wouldn't have had so much trouble going home from Troy if he didn't reveal his real name to the cyclops he blinded, which would have left Poseidon unaware of who to punish.
* LoopholeAbuse: Hades swears on the River Styx not to directly help Odysseus return to Ithaca, then proceeds to find ways to ''indirectly'' help him.
* PapaWolf: After Poseidon learns that Odysseus has blinded his cyclops son, Polyphemus, he swears to give Odysseus a death at sea, and to flood the Underworld if Hades ever provides direct assistance to Odysseus' journey back to Ithaca.
