and fictional characters meet in HellReread 2018 This book is a compilation from other books with bridge stories The bookfictional characters meet in HellReread 2018 This book is a compilation from other books with bridge stories The book about Julius Caesar and collects all the stories so far about him and his family and companions and then fills in all the details between stories Entertaining not too serious book based on the idea that all those historical figures who ended up in hell must be doing something down there The premise is that this novel takes place in Hell where all the great figures of history are still alive and fighting each other for power or against a still alive and fighting each other for power or against a Authority who is all powerful and malevolent Things feel pretty 1980s America but the word is you can use as much technology as you believe in So Caesar who can t uite accept man walking on the moon wears 1960s combat fatigues whereas Hatshepsut who has no trouble believing anything wears semi transparent cat suits with glowing The Canadian Regime lights and wields a tiny pistol that disintegrates fleshIt s a great world offering upots of chances for all your favorite historical figures to hang out by the pool together or charge across tennis courts in jeeps with the Hunish Polo TeamThis was my favorite novel in High School So much my favorite that when I saw a copy at the ocal used book shop I suealed with delight and immediately bought itThis book is why I read all I could about Hatshepsut Why I tried and failed to secure the chat name Hatshepsut on IRC This book made me read The Divine Comedy and The Princ.
