Richard Farnsworth is a scientist, a soldier and a writer of strange stories.
Succumbing To Gravityby Richard Farnsworth
Greg used to be an angel, but that was an eternity ago. Back when he was Araqiel, part of the celestial chorus. Back before he gave in to his temptations. Before he fell. Now he roams the wet streets of a hopeless city, feeding his addictions and punishing himself for sins that cannot be forgiven. But when a desperate girl and a host of vengeful demons cross his path, Greg must choose between redemption and damnation. For him, the two may not be so different.

We have all made sacrifices in our lives, but none of them could compare to ones that Greg presents the reader. The internal conflict that our protagonist struggles with every day is beyond human comprehension. He knew heaven once, and it was taken from him as a penitence for his sins. But how far can you fall as an angel? A lot farther than you think. Wandering the earth for centuries of time, burdened with the guilt of his own damnation, he self- medicates his pain with heroine. Even though his wings have been shorn, he is left with residual gifts from his celestial life. He uses his ability to see ones soul to pull a small fortune telling gig. This in return keeps him fed - on his favorite diet of pancakes - and enough funds to buy more smack. This parlor tick of his eventually led him to reading for someone that compromises his self-absorbed existence. Now his time has come to fight his own inner demons, and the real demons trying to claw their way back from the abyss below. It's been a long time since I read a book, and ran around shoving it in everyone's face telling them they have to read it. So if you haven't read this, you need to, and let's see if you read the last line of the book and yell: "F#@k Yeah!" like I did.
