WAR - AND HELL

Mym was a dutiful son, but his father the Rajah interfered in his love life once too often.  Rather than wed without love, he took up the Red Sword, symbol of the office of the Incarnation of War.

At first he thought his efforts could ameliorate some of the suffering caused by Earth's constant petty wars.  But he found that behind all his involvement were the clever traps of Satan.

When seeming mischance placed him in Hell, Mym organized a great rebellion among the Damned.  And Satan seemed to capitulate.  But free again, Mym learned that Satan had been busy stirring up riots and war.  Now it seemed things had gone too far and Satan must surely win.  There was only one desperate chance.

HERE IS A FOURTH COMPLETE-IN-ITSELF NOVEL OF THE INCARNATIONS OF IMMORTALITY, PIERS ANTHONY AGAIN COMBINES FASCINATING MAGIC WITH A GRIPPING, COMPLEX STRUGGLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL.

  • 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.
