And Eternity – Book Seven of Incarnations of Immortality

This entry was posted in Books & Literature, Fantasy, Science Fiction by Cleave on

It has been 2 decades since the marriage of Satan and Gaea and the reinstatement of Perry to the office of the Incarnation of Evil. Jolie still visits him often with the help of Orb by animating her body for those visits of carnal passion and love. In this way the marriage has not been consummated legally since it was not Orb or Gaea that was actually having liaisons with Satan. All the Incarnations know what is going on but they also know that Satan or Perry is not really a truly evil person so they look the other way and do not begrudge the trio their love. Satan still tries for dominance and to incite evil on earth but he feels it is so to sort the souls better for processing to either Hell or Heaven. Of course they know thins and know that it is necessary but they don’t have to like it and God, the Incarnation of Good is too busy contemplating his own greatness that he doesn’t care what is going on. Something has to be done to change the current situation or everything will come to an end.

This is book 6 of Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony and is the story of Satan himself and his centuries long interaction with all of the other incarnates, even with the gods of old. Perry is the child of a peasant that is abducted by the lord of the manor and forced to be the son of a sorcerer. It is the raising of his youth and the tragedies of his life that make it possible for him to actually save all of mankind from total chaos. The only thing is is that he and the other Incarnations do not know it yet. It will take centuries for him to piece it all together and figure it out before he can truly love once again.

It is near the end of the 12th century and there is a horrible drought upon the land and nothing seems to be able to stop it. The area needs rain and not any prayer or wishing is helping at all. The lord of the land needs to find a way to make sure that the crops grow or both he and his peasants are going to starve to death before any help might find them.

There are times that you are just surfing the net and you find the rarest of gems along the way. Welcome To Hereafter a webcomic by Bry Kotyk is one of those gems. The artists takes us on a wild ride to see just what the other side of life could and can be like and the crazy characters that could be there. It is a humor that we don’t get to see about religion and I am not just talking about only Christianity. Nothing is sacrosanct with this author, he looks at all the religions and have so far poked fun at Christ, God, Buddha and a slew of the Greek and Norse gods. He even has Thor and Hermes shacking up and playing house, if you know what I mean. Its all suggestive and not something that is not safe for work type thing but you do get the point. This comic is full of things that are going to make you laugh and want to talk about with others that have either seen the comic or those that you show the comic to.

Some of the other Incarnations can but seldom do, the one that she does encounter stands in her way. Lachesis is the weaver of the tapestry of time. It is her job to take the threads that have been measured and then place them into the tapestry so that people can be born into the world. She can also tweak the weave to unravel kinks that always seem to happen at the worst times in history. In this way she is able to make sure that life continues on as it should. The third aspect of Fate is that of Atropos, she is the one who measures and cuts the threads that Clotho weaves and Lachesis weaves into the tapestry.
