THE MAN WHO MURDERED DEATH

Shooting Death was a mistake, as Zane soon discovered.  For the man who killed the Incarnation of Death was immediately forced to assume the vacant position!  Thereafter, he must speed over the world, riding his pale horse, and ending the lives of others.

Zane was forced to accept this unwelcome task, despite the rules that seemed woefully unfair.  But then he found himself being drawn into an evil plot of Satan.  Already the Prince of Evil was forging a trap in which Zane must act to destroy Luna, the woman he loved.

He could only see one possible way to defeat the Father of Lies.  It was unthinkable - but he had no other solution!

IN THIS FIRST NOVEL OF THE INCARNATIONS OF IMMORTALITY, PIERS ANTHONY COMBINES A GRIPPING STORY OF ROMANCE AND CONFLICTING LOYALTIES WITH A DEEPLY MOVING EXAMINATION OF THE MEANING OF LIFE AND DEATH.  THIS IS A NOVEL THAT WILL LONG LINGER IN THE READERS MIND.

First Paperback Edition: August 1984

I bought this book many years before I read it at a used book store.  I got six of the seven and never got book six (For Love of Evil) until I rediscovered them in a box I had.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
