Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The discovery of God's corpse in the mid-Atlantic poses a menace to navigation and to faith. Charged with captaining a supertanker as it tows the two-mile long corpse northward to the Arctic so that it can be preserved, Anthony Van Horne must contend with sabotage (both natural and spiritual) and mutiny along the way. An allegorical tale certain to entertain and provoke.

Synopsis:

God is dead, and Anthony Van Horne must tow the corpse to the Arctic (to preserve Him from sharks and decomposition). En route Van Horne must also contend with ecological guilt, a militant girlfriend, sabotage both natural and spiritual, and greedy hucksters of oil, condoms, and doubtful ideas. Winner of a 1995 World Fantasy Award.

James Morrow was born in Philadelphia in 1947. Besides writing, he plays with Lionel electric trains and collects videocassettes of vulgar biblical spectacles.

Arboreality, July 17, 2007 (view all comments by Arboreality)
I wish I could say I loved it, because the plot (God has died, fallen into the sea, and needs to be towed to the Arctic for burial in an iceberg) is awesome, but instead it just gets a strong "Like" instead. Once the crazy liberal plot to hide the proof got cooked up, I kind of lost interest.

God is dead. Or sort of. And his body is brought to The Haag to stand trial.
Great book. 'Nuff said.
