The original title of the book: Mythos

Computer savvy sorcerer Ravirn learns that not every world is user friendly in this WebMage novel from Kelly McCullough.

In the 21st century, magic has advanced with the times and gone digital. Ravirn--umpteenth great-grandson of one of the three Fates--is a talented sorcerer, a computer hacker extraordinaire, and in the process of becoming a minor demi-god. His best friend and familiar is both a goblin and a laptop, changing shape from one to the other as needed.

While repairing Necessity (the badly-broken sentient computer that runs the multiverse), Ravirn is thrown into a very different place, a parallel world where the Greek gods are only myths. This strange realm is ruled by the Norse pantheon of gods--Odin, Thor, and other fun-loving brutes--and their magic uses a completely different operating system. A system that Ravirn will have to hack if he ever wants to get out of Asgard alive...

    What should be done when divine magic alone is not enough to keep track of all creation? Why, enlist the aid of computers, of course, turning hacking and programming into required skills for Gods and Demigods alike. This is the central conceit of Kelly McCullough's series featuring Ravirn, hacker, sorcerer, descendant of Fate and nascent power of Chaos, of which MythOS is the fourth volume. This is certainly an original idea, and McCullough has managed to create some engaging and intriguing characters over the past three books (Webmage,Cybermancy and Codespell (Ace Fantasy Book)), ranging from Melchior, Ravirn's goblin cum laptop sidekick, to Eris, the Goddess of Discord with her server farm of Golden Apples. The plots have been intriguing, too, with Ravirn defending the free will of humanity against the machinations of Fate, unwittingly breaking Persephone out of the underworld with a computer virus, and having to hack Necessity, the ultimate arbiter of reality, in order to fix the virus' damage.When MythOS opens, Ravirn is up to his old hacking tricks again, trying to break into Necessity again in search of his friend, the webtroll Ahllan, who vanished sometime before. Almost immediately, however, he finds himself catapulted into an entirely different `pantheoverse', where the Norse deities rule, along with Melchior and the fury Tisiphone, guardian of Necessity and Ravirn's current lover. Now, he has to learn a new form of magic and a new form of programming in order to find out where he is, and how to get home, all while trying to avoid being entangled in the conflict between Odin, and Loki, his fated destroyer, and worrying about what is going on back home, where all is clearly not well.Ravirn fans may miss the presence of some of the characters from previous books, in particular the mischievous Eris, but by taking Ravirn into a new reality McCullough has given himself full rein to introduce a range of interesting new ones, while maintaining his trademark humorous style. There's Odin, controlling his realm through his domination of the magical software market - with MimirSoft; Fenir, the wolf of world's end, operating a computer company from an Icelandic volcano; and Jormundgand, the world-circling Midgard Serpent, conducting civilised discussions and reminiscing about listening to Homer. All these make for entertaining reading, and mean that fans are unlikely to be disappointed. I'm certainly looking forward to the new developments in the next book, and will be putting in a pre-order as soon as it's available.
