How can one damned handyman keep all Hell running when everything’s always breaking, devils and demons plot against him … and he sucks at fixing things?
Steve is Hell’s Super, its handyman. Being Mr. Fixit to the Underworld is not only his eternal damnation; it keeps him and his assistant, Orson Welles (yes, that Orson Welles), pretty busy, since things go on the blink all the time down there.
No malfunction has ever created so much inconvenience, though, as the breakdown of Hell’s Escalator, which leads from the Pearly Gates to the depths of Hades. Everyone is upset, from St. Peter, who is having a crowding problem on Gates Level, to Satan himself, who sees a public relations disaster in the making. What’s worse: the breakdown of the Escalator looks to be sabotage, and if not fixed, all Hell could break loose.
Steve and Orson must fix the Escalator, find and stop the insurrectionists, and rebuild the Stairway to Paradise as a backup. Along the way, the guys must contend with a variety of Hell’s inhabitants: Management, magical creatures and famous historical characters. To complete his tasks, Steve must traverse the Circles of Hell, from One (a gated golf community) all the way down to Nine.
The Devil and his demon underlings have given Steve an impossible assignment, but it has one benefit: the job lets him spend time with the gorgeous, almost saintly Flo. Unlike any of the other inmates, she is working in Hell by choice because she cannot bear the suffering and must help alleviate it, whatever the personal cost. Steve adores Flo, and maybe Flo likes him too. But love and romance in Hell? Surely that could never be. Maybe, though… or maybe not.
But satire and humor in Hell? Most definitely.
Hell's Super Is the first volume in the new comedy fiction series, Circles in Hell. It has been compared to other works of comic fantasy including The Screwtape Letters and Good Omens and to the fiction of Tom Holt, Christopher Moore and Douglas Adams.
