I have read Zelazny's "Creatures of Light and Darkness." A good read. My favorite short by Zelazny is "For a Breath I Tarry" - here's a link to the story in its entirety. You can read it on your "break."Ever read Zelazny's "Creatures of Light and Darkness"? The Iliad?
Modern "education" tsk tsk. apparently students don't know any Greek mythology. Heck they can't read, add or subtract. But they do know that teachers are underpaid! Only the "important" things are taught.

I've read the Illiad and the Odyssey, and many other Greek texts historical and fictitious although only in English, among them Thucidides, nearly everything by Plato (which I immediately forgot, except for a few choice metaphors), plenty of Aristotle (unfortunately) and lots of political demagoguery by various old dead Greeks, most of Sophocles's plays, some Aristophane, and Hesiod's Theogony, which is probably the best place to learn about Typhon, although Ovid's Metamorphosis talks about him as well - Hesiod says he's the father of Chimera, Cerberus, the Hydra, Ovid says he's the father of the Sphynx. The Sphynx and the Chimera are often intertwined in myth. My major in college was ancient Greek history with a minor in post-enlightenment philosophy, so as not to put Descartes before the horse, or the Pegasus, or whatever.
I'll leave you with my favorite Diogenes story:
Diogenes stood outside a brothel, shouting, "A beautiful ***** is like poisoned honey! A beautiful ***** is like poisoned honey! A beautiful ***** . . . ". Men entering the house threw him a coin or two to shut him up. Eventually Diogenes had collected enough money and he too went into the brothel.
