The Tyrant (1 Viewer)

I really recommend this book for anyone that is looking for something a little more out of the mainstream. It is a bit hard to find, though half.com was where I got mine.
It's a book that has a simple premise (man with mental powers is sent to the underworld [hell] to determine the nature of death,) but it far exceeds the nature of the story by the richness of the writing, which is very dream-like.
If you like a story that doesn't follow normal expectations, and you like to be left wondering exactly what happened in the end, the Tyrant is for you.

Michael Cisco. I learned about him from Realms of Fantasy Magazine. I was really blown away by his writing style. He has another book called The Divinity Student, but I am, as of yet, unable to find a copy at a reasonable price.

I have read a reasonably wide variety of books (Dune, Watership Down, Stardust, Fight Club, ect.,) and i definately put this up there with my favorites!!!
