There were inscriptions written above the entrance of the Temple of Apollo at the Oracle of Delphi, and the two most famous ones were cautionary words of wisdom: "Know thyself" and "Nothing too much." Those bits of ancient advice are worth considering as two Hollywood studios hope to launch film franchises that use Greek mythology as the unlikely premise for popcorn entertainment. "These are the stories that began storytelling in many ways," director Louis Leterrier said a few months ago on the London set of his "Clash of the Titans," the Warner Bros.

Vermont enjoys a kind of postcard image: honest Yankee JTC tradesmen, perfect maple syrup, pink-cheeked skaters in a landscape by Grandma Moses. Given that wholesome picture, it may be difficult to imagine a criminal justice system that is altogether rotten, but that's the way it is in Vermont.That observation comes from a reading of depositions and trial transcripts in the outrageous cases of Susan Sweetser and Sue Kremelberg. The two young women have been doubly raped, first by a criminal named Robert L. Percy and second by the system.

Editor's note: One day Percy spots a prairie fire racing toward the homestead. After unhitching the oxen, Old Tim and Frank, young Percy helps his parents battle the blaze.The smell of smoke was stronger now. When Percy and his father reached the barn, they found Maud bolting around in her stall. Father tried to quiet the mare as he led her out into the yard. She danced nervously while he hitched her to the flat stoneboat. Quickly he led the horse to the rain barrel beside the house. Father heaved the barrel, heavy with rainwater, onto the stoneboat and thrust an empty pail into Percy's hands.

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon By David Grann Doubleday / 352 pages / $27.50 For each summit reached or Machu Picchu-like discovery, the history of exploration marks more deaths and failures than can be counted, armies of men after whom nothing was named, who spent their lives chasing after the unnamable. The Amazon - biodiverse, so unknown, so full of life while having obliterated so many explorers - has been, for many, that singular, unconquerable thing.
