Book Description

The story of the great God Zeus’ confrontation with Christianity, as told to the magician Edward Whistman by space-aliens.

30,000 words.

Author’s Note:
This is a fiction within a fiction.

In my novel The Brontosaurus Pluto Society: Magic Makes You Strange we met the magician Edward Whistman. After an adventure which featured both devils from the planet Venus and silver aliens from the planet Pluto, Edward found himself with this story in his head. Our present tome, The Confessions of Zeuspater, is referred to numerous times in Edward’s story. Through contemplation upon the events within, Edward was able to learn magic. You may now read it in its entirety and find out what he was going on about.
It is not necessary to have already read The Brontosaurus Pluto Society: Magic Makes You Strange or any of my other works to enjoy and understand the tale at hand.

You may notice that the names of the gods vary between Roman and Greek orthodoxy. This is Edward’s interpretation. He did his best to understand.

This story is inappropriate for the dogmatic, the humorless, or the fanatical. Be sure that you understand the purpose of fiction before judging this humble author too harshly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible stuff! September 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Surprinsingly good Gotterdammerung narrative about Zeus confronting the beginnings of Christiandom that reaches amazing poetic heights, nearly rivaling any Greek or Roman mythos. It's a great corollary to the author's Magic Makes You Strange, since it's told from the viewpoint of the magician Edward Whistman, a character in that book. Take heed of the author's opening warning about that "this story is inappropriate for the dogmatic, the humorless, or the fanatical"... he MEANS it. In every book, there's an intriguing character or two, and I particularly felt a great empathy with Golgee, the wood spirit that hangs around Zeus; I really ended wanting to know more about this little guy; but it's obvious that the writer is readying him to become a major character elsewhere, so he was wise not to tell me more in the book... Only time will tell... I have only a caveat about "Confessions of Zeuspater" and it is that you'll get a lot more out of it if you have had a classical education... Besides of this small detail, this is Noah Mullette-Gillman at his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divine Inspiration December 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The universe Noah has created in The Brontosaurus Pluto Society series is (not surprisingly) imaginative and compelling. In Magic Makes You Strange, he takes us on an adventure with a an out of place and out of time stage magician in a world very much like our own (If we had little grey men, devils and magic...). In this story, reference is made on several occasions to a tale predating man that haunts the protagonist. A story he is ultimately compelled to write. Instead of just conveniently quoting the text as necessary throughout the series and leaving us to imagine the rest is there, Noah has presented the work in its entirety.

Enter The Confessions of Zeuspater. From the beginning, in the forward, the fictional author questions the validity of the story. It all starts on a great foot, a delightfully meta take on divine inspiration. From there, we're taken on a fantastic tale of Titans and Gods, Angels, Heaven, the Underworld, divine paradox and the always-fun Ourosboros.

In my mind, this is Noah's finest work to date. This piece of comparative religion stands well on its own (though its predecessor is well worth reading). It is my sincere hope that this will not be the only such piece in The Brontosaurus Pluto Society series. As much as I enjoy the adventure stories, this narrative of the divine has left me wanting more. Noah is truly at best when he is re-imagining the realm of the gods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of ?wazithinkin July 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I love the disclaimer at the beginning! I am no theologian, nor am I a student of Mythology, either Roman or Greek. So I read this as just a story. Ha! Noah uses his artistic license to his full advantage and ability. Again his world building is incomparable, they are unique and they pull you in. You get caught up and invested in the outcome. Noah K. Mullette-Gillman knows his characters inside and out, they jump off the pages and into your imagination. Edward Whistman may be well on his way to becoming insane. Maybe his only saving grace is that this story is no longer in his head, only the author knows for sure at this point. I really don't know what to think about this story, I feel like I am in too deep to let it go. Edward Whistman is more than just a magicians assistant, that much I am sure of.
