Achilles' Choice
Author: Larry Niven, Steven Barnes, Boris Vallejo
The gods of Olympus offered a fateful choice to the warrior, Achilles--a short, glorious life, or a long, dull one. Achilles chose glory. This is the story of the Eleventh Olympiad in the late 21st century--a contest not only for glory but for survival--and of the woman who dared to compete for the highest stakes of all. The future of humanity.
