Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Allan Carpenter escaped from hell once but remained haunted by what he saw and endured.   He has now returned, on a mission to liberate those souls unfairly tortured and confined.   Partnering with the legendary poet and suicide, Sylvia Plath, Carpenter is a modern-day Christ who intends to harrow hell and free the damned.   But now that he's returned to this Dantesque Inferno, can he ever again leave?

Library Journal Review

Having fought his way out of Dante's all too real Hell in Inferno, sf writer Allen Carpenter now returns-to rescue souls who don't deserve to be there. Teaming up with the poet-suicide Sylvia Plath, Carpenter discovers that, while entering Hell is easy, leaving it-especially with a crowd-is hard. Veteran sf writers Niven (Ringworld's Children) and Pournelle (Star Swarm) again build a monumental saga that is part tribute, part satire, and entirely entertaining. Recommended for most sf collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
