Ok, I only remember a little about this book. It may even be classified as a fantasy rather than Sci-Fi.

The book is about a man that discovers that he can read and control minds. He is afraid that he is leaking (not intentionally) and controlling his family so he moves away. He ends up with a doctor trying to help himself control his abilities. He goes to Atlantic city to test his control.

After that he discovers another like him. The other one is actually a very old hero from Sumerian or Mesopotamian legend. I can't remember his name at the moment.

They end up in a fight and the hero of the story ends up winning.

That's about all I can remember right now.

Can anyone help? I'd like to pick up this book again.

I'm not sure. I just remember reading it a few years ago. So it's at least 2-3 years old.

Sounds a bit like HOW LIKE A GOD by Brenda W. Clough. Guy gets power, guy leaves family, guy to to AC, guy meets Gilgamesh...

That sounds like it's the one! Thank you very much. I'll try and track it down.
