    Another winner in a long running and excellent series

    Started in the '80's and still going strong, this is the latest of Chris and Janet Morris's works.

    This, their latest, is well worth reading, as a stand-alone or , for those who are familiar with their past works, as an addition to Hell's wonderous and quirky ways.

    Here, we finally get to deal with his Satanic Majesty and his most wonderous of all minions, Lawyers lol!

    I will not give away anything by saying there are twists galore here and that things are NOT always as they seem.

    Thank You Chris and Janet and, Tempus for another wonderful decade of reading!

    The damnedest writers in perdition turn up the heat!

    Lawyers in Hell: I had a hell of a good time. Every damned story was hotter than the last. I especially liked Hell's landlord, and the auditors sent from Heaven to make sure that Injustice is fairly distributed. And f course, Satan is still stirring the pot. Meet more lawyers than you can shake a pitchfork at, in Lawyers in Hell. Fun for all in the underworld. Highly recommended.

    Great Anthology Returns

    This is a new set of short stories from the "Heroes in Hell" series, which began in the 1980's and has all-new material. CJ Cherryh, Nancy Asire, Janet and Chris Morris and others have put together a great series of stories to resurrects the series.

    Lawyers in Hell has a great meta-arc involving the Akkadian God Erra and his Seven Sibitti, which is something that I didn't see in the first collection of stories in the universe. Using Erra to "audit" Hell was both frightening and brilliant, as even Satan pauses at the wrath of the mighty Akkadian.

    Also, a new creature is introduced - Eshi and Kur, in Janet Morris's "Tribe of Hell", which explains just how long hell was around before the gods decided to have a place to send all of their damned.

    Great stories, can't wait for more

    Hellish fun with the Devil and damned souls from all ages

    Lawyers in Hell starts with the Devil granting an exclusive interview with a reporter form the New Hell Sinday Times. It seems that Heaven is sending auditors to hell because the damned are having too good a time. Now Hell gets more hellish and we're there as Heaven lays down the law.... Great characters such as hell's landlords, Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, George Orwell, Leonidas and the 300, Caesar, Lord Wellington and Napoleon team up to make Lawyers in Hell a sophisticated romp you'll want to read over and over again.
