Product description

Product Description

Hell freezes over. Heaven heats up. A resort springs to life on the banks of the River Styx and souls don’t want to move on.

Nothing scares our intrepid immortals—except a run-in with a scissor-wielding Fate after messing up the Great Tapestry. She’s the only one capable of cutting their Life Threads.

It’s just another day in Purgatory for Death and Chronos as they sort through the mayhem and keep the universe from spinning out of control. Be sure to bring along your helmet. You never know when Death might offer you a ride on his Harley.

Step into their world. The afterlife will never be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars But a few unusual mortals such as the “irresistible” Jezebel and the haughty Jeeves play their parts to keep the fun and games g 14 August 2015

Those of us who are addicted to the antics of River Fairchild’s immortals Death and Chronos, otherwise known as Thanatos and Time, will gladly welcome Just Another Day in Purgatory. Once again, the two old friends go from scrape to scrape with such other immortals as Gaia, War, Evil and Atropos, the fate whose “giant pair of scissors” or “abhorred shears” cut the thread of life. But a few unusual mortals such as the “irresistible” Jezebel and the haughty Jeeves play their parts to keep the fun and games going.

One of the most enjoyable features of Fairchild’s Death and Chronos stories is the endless wordplay. When the guys decide to pay a visit to hell on Death’s Harley, Death says, “Even though we have the best of intentions, we’ll take the unpaved road.” And the music from Death’s sound system is, of course, the theme song from Death Takes a Holiday.

Once again, Death loses the peanuts he loves in Chronos’ “anachronistic” gold-shag carpet. “Don’t fret,” Death says to Chronos during one crisis. “Time is on our side.” Death later says, “I’m neutral. Nobody escapes me in the end. I say live and let live.” After our heroes are forced to escape through Gaia’s carnivorous flower garden, Chronos needs to treat the bites on his legs. “Good thing the flowers weren’t taller,” he decides.

Thank you, River Fairchild, for more Death and Chronos.
5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and fun stories of Death and Chronos 12 September 2015

Time to take another wild ride with Death and Chronos. Hell freeze over, Charon gets a cruise ship, and time altering belches. And, oh yes, Jezebel.

A terrifically fun speculative fiction read that had me laughing out loud. These short stories are clever and ridiculous. I want to keep reading them as much as Death wants to keep eating peanuts.
5.0 out of 5 stars 'Purgatory' is beautiful and absurd 18 January 2016

Lady Fairchild comes dangerously close to creating a new genre. 'Purgatory' is beautiful and absurd. I mean: 'You should've used a wedge for that shot,' Death said. Ridiculous and funny.
