Synopses & Reviews
Allan Carpenter escaped from hell once but remained haunted by what he saw and endured.
He has now returned, on a mission to liberate those souls unfairly tortured and confined.
Partnering with the legendary poet and suicide, Sylvia Plath, Carpenter is a modern-day Christ who intends to harrow hell and free the damned.
But now that he's returned to this Dantesque Inferno, can he ever again leave?
"Escape from Hell" is the long-awaited follow-up to Niven and Pournelle's classic science-fiction reimagining of Dante's "Inferno."
