“A novel about taking reality with a pillar of salt”
While The Lancaster Rule is in progress, I’ll be picking up the first ever ebook I received as a “gift” on Kindle. It’s pretty exciting. Not to mention the book is on the short list for the February 2011 Heretic Badge of Honor from the Scattering.
Written by the mysterious Commander Pants, a pseudonym (I hope) for the as-yet-unnamed “pseuper hero,” Whom God Would Destroy is a cheerful piece of literary blasphemy with this for a plot summary:
It’s 1987, and “God” decides that it’s about time he returned to Earth once more. Opening up a New Age store, he brings with him a fresh message for mankind to screw up – one tailor-made for this, the age of greed. It’s called Meism, and it extols the virtues of selfishness, having its adherents, “Do good unto others so they can feel good about themselves,” instead of that Golden Rule’s tired old message. Sadly, He runs into a few kinks he didn’t foresee…
Whom God Would Destroy; it’s about God, Big Macs, insanity and the search for the Ultimate Orgasm!
Which is all well and good for an expatriate Catholic who had a religion teacher (a strict, straight-laced, grizzled and gray-haired religion teacher) tell her class in high school that Heaven is an “infinite and eternal orgasm with Jesus.” So infinitely disturbing.
