"...a shocker!" "brilliantly written" "It is not a book you finish and forget..."
A satiric story from Hell, set in Heaven.
God's having a bad day. Once upon a time, He made the mistake of dividing Heaven into realms and provinces, overseen by deities jostling for territory and profits. Now everything is sliding out of control. The one-time Creator of the Universe is estranged from his son, riddled with guilt, and fighting battles on multiple fronts. His few remaining rules are being bypassed, His angels are turning up dead. Unless He can find out who is gunning for Him, the unthinkable might occur.
'Flies for the Mayans' is a violent black comedy of post-Biblical proportions.
