Dreamers in Hell (Heroes in Hell, Volume 15)
Created by Janet Morris, edited by Janet and Chris Morris, and written "with the diabolical assistance of their damnedest writers."
Perseid Press (478 pages, June 13, 2013, $23.95 in trade paperback)
[....]Welcome to Hell, where Perdition rules. Whether a soul believes in Hell or not, Hell believes in damnation of the mortal soul. Anyone can end up in Hell, no matter what religion, no matter what faith. You may not believe in Hell, but Hell believes in you.
Dreamers in Hell is the 14th volume in this best-selling series, which has seen stories nominated and winning Hugo and Nebula awards. It is also the most ambitious book to date in this highly successful and most brilliant shared-universe of all. So let's get started, shall we? [....]
Chris Morris gets things off to a grand start with Fools in Hell. Satan plans a great festival to celebrate the rebuilding and reopening of the Hellexandrian Library.  [....] Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe write a play for Satan, who enlists their aid in yet another of his nefarious schemes. And who knows what wicked games, what sinister machinations lurk in the mind of His Satanic Majesty, aka HSM?
"Leave me in hell then! But leave my hell alone!" Satan screams to "Above," in Janet Morris' wonderful Alms for Oblivion. There is too much overcrowding in Hell for Satan's liking. So he sets into motion plans to prove that Humankind is unworthy of Hell or redemption, and deserves only oblivion. Rid Hell of Humankind, and the Netherworlds won't be plagued by Erra and his 7 Auditors from Above running amok throughout Satan's rightful domain. [....]
After many adventures] we come to the final chapter, folks, and a most fitting pay-off it is, too. Janet Morris returns us to Chris Marlowe and Will Shakespeare as they perform, perhaps for all eternity, their play, Hell Bent, which is also the title of this eloquent and theatrical comic-tragedy. The two playwrights play lovers in a hellish parody of their own plays, which they have written to order, per His Satanic Majesty's Request. Will plays the male lead, Marlowe the female. In every performance, Marlowe must kill Shakespeare -- I mean, really kill him. But the Bard does not return to the Undertaker for reassignment, for Satan is there at every performance, there to revive him, once a night and twice on Sadderday. More than a parody, their play is almost a travesty, being made up of scenes and dialogue cannibalized from the plays they wrote in life. Marlowe, in love with Shakespeare, wonders and worries over the Bard's infatuation with HSM. [....]
Over and over again, Marlowe must kill Shakespeare in the final act, only to watch, through jealous eyes and suffering heart, as Satan brings Will back from the dead, showering him with love and favor. However, after long and many arguments, Marlowe convinces Will to trade roles with him, and the Bard in turn convinces Satan to let them do it, because he wishes to learn how it feels to truly kill a man.
"Since I cannot prove a lover, I am determined to prove a villain," Will tells the Devil, quoting a line from his own Richard III.
Will the Prince of Darkness bring Marlowe back to life after Shakespeare kills him in the final act of their play? Ah, there's the rub.
Not since Adam and Eve has the Devil had such a pair to play, one against the other. [...]
Each story in Dreamers in Hell is top notch. Perhaps I should say each chapter, for this is truly a shared-universe that reads like a novel, rather than an anthology. The stories are all very good, many are great, some are superb. This is a true collaboration of diverse hands that has been shaped and molded into a cohesive whole by Janet and Chris Morris.
The beauty of the Heroes in Hell series is that all genres work in Hell, and no genre has been left undone. You'll find horror and science fiction here, fantasy and historical drama, satire and action/adventure thrillers -- even romance. These metaphysical, visionary "mythical epics" are character-driven, thoughtful, intelligent, and insightful. They examine the nature of Man, and the nature of good and evil. [....]
Have some sympathy for the Devil and give Satan his due: check this one out. In fact, I recommend you check out all 14 books in the Heroes in Hell
 series. Just in case you find yourself in Hell one day, it's best to be on the good side of the Devil. If he has one, that is. 
               -- Joe Bonadonna, Black Gate Adventures in Fantasy Literature

From the Author

Heroes in Hell is a shared universe created by me, Janet Morris, in the 1980s and resurrected in the 21st century with the the 13th volume in the series, Lawyers in Hell.  Each volume of stories contains not only my stories, but stories from authors famous and emerging, and usually at least one story from a previously unpublished author.  For the 21st century HIH books, Chris Morris has become my co-editor.  Heroes in Hell also contains the occasional novel, when the spirit moves me to write one, co-write one, or to have one of our authors write one.
     The 21st century HIH books have a distinctively experimental flavor.  Lawyers in Hell is followed in good order by Rogues in Hell, an anthology and 14th in the series, and then Bridge Over Hell, an HIH novel by Michael A. Armstrong, This latest anthology volume, Dreamers in Hell, is our 16th outing.
     Heroes in Hell volumes can be read in any order, proving Marlowe's thesis that where we are is hell, nor are we out of it...  Our characters from history, myth and legend are put to the test by auditors from Above and by the Devil Himself.
     Dreamers in Hell is my favorite volume so far from the anthologies.  It is very dark and blackly humorous.  We hope you'll enjoy the new writers we've discovered, the emerging ones we're supporting, and the veterans Hellions, our repeat offenders in this exploration of the afterlife and what it holds.  In Dreamers, Satan launches his clever plan to prove to the Almighty that humanity is irredeemable.  And may just succeed....  JEM
