While this book is a lottle different than many of Stasheff's books, it makes for a nice casual read. Rather than simply telling a narrative, Stasheff guides the reader through the hero's growth much as St. Vidicon guids the young man through a series of quests that help him become a better man. An enjoyable coming of age story for those who have grown up,but not achieved their dreams.

Saint Vidicon to the Rescue is a fast read, that connects cyberspace to the real world through dreams. The scene where St. Vidicon dies is hysterical, but I can't give it away you'll have to enjoy it for yourself. It's cool because there are real consequences from the dream battles against the gremlins and viruses that attack the computers. I especially enjoy when people pray to St. Vidicon to be saved from many different kinds of computer malfunctions. Then he comes and saves them and their work on the computer. Being a computer technician myself sometimes there just doesn't seem to be a reason why things won't work, and it always seems magical that a little reboot and switching a connection gets a computer to work again. Great gift for the fantasy techno wizards in your life! Tongue in cheek and very humorous, doesn't take itself seriously.

I can relate with the different characters in this book, being a computer technician. Its very well written, origonal, and quite frankly helps explain the odd problems that can't be explained away. lol. Overall, I'd say this is a worthy book to read.

After the amazing world he created in his Warlock series, this book is a big disappointment. A boring storyline and bland characters most definitely make this Stasheff's worst book.

This book is quite fun, and very deftly manages to be irreverent without being blatantly mocking or crass. It's a very fun read, and Stasheff is very talented. Vidicom is a brilliant character, and the idea alone makes it worth a read. A really fun sort of fantasy!

The Catholic Church is poor with members leaving every day to join Reverend Sun¿s organization. In one last desperate measure, the pope goes on television to show why the church must survive. The equipment they use to televise the pontiff is old but Father Vidicon repairs the apparatus until he receives a shock and dies; thanks to his perseverance the show went on and the church is saved................. People pray to Father Vidicon, who they want to make a saint, to help them when Finagles General Principle operates in their lives. Father Vidicon who is fighting the minions of the imp of the perverse is busy answering all prayers. His solution is to find an assistant who is smart and to help those who need some spiritual help. He contacts computer technician Tony Ricci threw his writings on the computer screen directing him where to go to help people in need. In return Father Vidicon gives advice to Tony about the woman to loves who he met when company¿s computers were showing the writings of Father Vidicon................... Christopher Stasheff, the author of the famous warlock series, uses a contemporary setting but with the same humor in his latest work, SAINT VIDICON TO THE RESCUE. This novel is really a series of vignettes where Tony or Father Vidicon are helping people who are entangled with Finagles General Principle and Murphy¿s law. The spirit and the man communicate through dreams and a computer. When Tony works on solving a prayer he is a spirit that can become any size he chooses to get the job done. This is a stand alone book that will please fans of this talented author................ Harriet Klausner
