    The Old Diety Peddler

    I read the first part of ESCAPE FROM HEAVEN for free on line. That¿s the way J. Neil Schulman hooks you in. You're reading along, enjoying the story, getting into it, than right at the most exciting part, he cuts your water off. Sort of like Tom Lehrer's "Old Dope Peddler": He gives the kids free samples, Because he knows full well, That today's young innocent faces, Will be tomorrow's clientele. I'm not complaining, though. I just had to read the rest, because it was such a rollicking good story and funny as, uh, hell. I especially appreciated the little inside jokes and references for science fiction fans, libertarians and gunnies. It kept me glued to the screen until I had read it "cover" to "cover." A couple of caveats; if you think you don't like anything but "hardcore" science fiction, this is probably not the J. Neil Schulman book for you. (Though I strongly recommend you give it a chance--hey, it's free.) Ditto, if you take your religion too seriously. (Schulman seems to agree with Heinlein's observation "One man's theology is another man's belly laugh." ESCAPE FROM HEAVEN has something to offend everyone's religious sensibilities, therefore plenty of belly laughs.

    Wonderful story

    This novel is a comedy, a theological "what if...", a philosophical discussion, and an all around good SF story. For those who love Robert Heinlein as I do, this story contains a fitting tribute to the Grand Master, who appears in the story. Those who would be offended by the theology in the story probably spend more time burning books than reading them, and Mr. Schulman has said that he welcomes those who would burn his books to buy them for this purpose, and reminds them that hardcovers burn longer and brighter. Some book burners may take offense to the theological liberties he has taken, but anyone who appreciates good SF will love it. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who appreciate the works of Heinlein and L. Neil Smith. If you've read any of J. Neil Schulmans's other works, you don't need this review anyway.
