This volume of John Donne's writings begins with a biography of John Donne's life, as told by Donne's writer friend, Izaak Walton. Walton gives readers a close look at Donne's past, which was plagued... More > with the loss of many close family members. This biographical information helps readers to make better sense of the somber devotions contained in this volume. In his Devotions upon Emergent Occasions, Donne concentrates on the miserable condition of man and the inevitability of death. The devotions are all structured the same, each beginning with a meditation followed by an expostulation and a prayer. These devotions serve as a preview for Donne's "Death's Duel Sermon," written near his death in 1631 as his funeral sermon. While "Death's Duel" paints a grave picture of earthly life tormented by pain and death, it hopes for a bright future in God's love through Christ's resurrection and ascension. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less

Scherzo Trepan's journey to the underworld begins each morning on the banks of a river. A rusted fridge is his elevator and to the sweat and heat of an incinerator plant he travels. Until one day he... More > wakes up in a hospital to the sight of aliens landing and the sound of a snapped on rubber glove. He searches for his dead sister, Rhiann, whose marriage to the Devil has been arranged by their father as a means of enhancing his job prospects. Accompanied by a three-legged mutant and a spanner, Scherzo makes a perilous descent into Hell, whilst on the surface world plots shift and transubstantiate, past and future conjoin, entities expostulate, characters - living and dead - get stuck on roundabouts. "A manic surrealist tapestry of outrageous colours and heady descriptive passages that may well burn holes in your brain. Or make a cat-flap."< Less

It was hard to judge Jeff Rand's age from his appearance; he was certainly over thirty and considerably under fifty. He looked hard and fit, like a man who could be a serviceable friend or a... More > particularly unpleasant enemy. Women instinctively suspected that he would make a most satisfying lover. One might have taken him for a successful lawyer (he had studied law, years ago), or a military officer in mufti (he still had a Reserve colonelcy, and used the title occasionally, to impress people who he thought needed impressing), or a prosperous businessman, as he usually thought of himself. Most of all, he looked like King Charles II of England anachronistically clad in a Brooks Brothers suit. At the moment, he was looking rather like King Charles II being bothered by one of his mistresses who wanted a peerage for her husband. "But, Mrs. Fleming," he was expostulating. "There surely must be somebody else.... After all, you'll have to admit that this isn't the sort of work this agency handles."< Less
