    Search for The Greek Myths by Robert Graves. A great entertaining read.

    Bullfinch's Mythology.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Mythology Books

    Bullfinch's Mythology is available at Project Gutenburg
    Edith Hamilton "Mythology"
    Robert Graves "The Greek Myths"
    also try Robert Graves "The White Goddess" for a denser look at poetic codes in mythology
    George Frazer "The Golden Bough" is available at Project Gutenburg
    Anything and everything by Joseph Campbell is good.

    I don't know if you're studying Greek Mythology for the classical literary value, for fun, or for anthropological research here...

    Homer "The Oddessy" is available at Project Gutenburg, and here's a link to my copy

    File:The Odyssey.pdf
    Length:1672349 Bytes,1633KB
    UUHash:=PkMx9D63DHQiJs5Hn79+JFMMEU0=

    Also avaialabe at P.G. should be Homers "The Illiad" and Virgil's "The Anead"
    Try looking in P.G. for Ovid, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Pthagoras, and Ptolemy as well.

    Also, a good place to look for texts on mythology is http://www.sacred-texts.com/

    Hope this helps.

    I've played it.

    But I wouldn't go nearly so far as to say it has everything about Greek mythology in it. It has some names.

    Actually, if you read the biographics of each of the "heroes", it has a short passage basically detailing the legend of which each is associated with.

    In essence, it's "Greek Mythology for Dummies" - But instead of pop-up, it's play-up
