Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Thirty stories filled with laughter and mishaps as a Harley-riding Death and anachronistic Chronos create havoc in Purgatory and on Earth. A host of Immortals join in the misadventures.

Find out what happens when Death teaches War how to bowl. Can Chronos fix his blunder when he loses a year? What is Gaia going to do when she discovers the invisible sheep? Can you win playing poker with Evil?

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

L'autore

River Fairchild is somewhat odd, brandishes a dry sense of humor, owned by several cats. Lives in a fantasy world. A fabricator of magic. Makes stuff up and spins tales about it. Believes in Faerie crossings and never staying in one place for very long. Speculative Fiction wordsmith. The secret to her stories? Spread lies, blend in truths, add a pinch of snark and a dash of tears. Escape into her world. She left the porch light on so you can find your way down the rabbit hole.

5.0 su 5 stelle Delightful Adventures of the Gods 5 maggio 2014
Di Ron Fritsch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I’m quite fond of River Fairchild’s Death and Chronos stories collected in Living the Afterlife. That Death, otherwise known as Thanatos, and Chronos, otherwise known as Time, are “sidekicks” shouldn’t surprise us. And with the fate of the world and all mortals in their hands, their doing what male buddies do so well—goofing off—causes big-time disruption for the other gods and goddesses and endless amusement for the reader.

What’s not to love about these guys? Most people see peanut-popping Death as “a nice-looking young man,” if they see him at all. “Only those whose time has come would see the skeletal visage.” And with this character, “Death on a Harley” acquires new meaning.

When Chronos decides to remove his anachronistic green shag carpet, embedded with the peanuts that get away from bony Death, he chooses to replace it with gold shag. Angry at Evil for making time go backward, Chronos tells him all we need to know: “You can’t screw up time this way. That’s my job.”

The other characters in these delightful adventures of Death and Chronos include a butt-kicking War, a cherubic Eros, an earth-loving Gaia and the Fates, the three sisters who spin the thread of one’s life, measure it and cut it.

Did I mention River Fairchild’s writing? This is her description of Nyx (Night), the goddess Chronos is in love with: “Midnight hair swirled about a gown made of starlight.”

4.0 su 5 stelle Meet Death and Chronos, the perfectly (mis?)matched duo! 15 ottobre 2014
Di Michelle Wallace - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I wanted to read something different, so I settled for this collection. I'm so glad I did.

We meet Death and Chronos, the perfectly (mis?)matched duo. Picture this: Death rides a Harley, listens to the Beach Boys on his i-Pod and has a weakness for peanuts which he tosses into the air and then catches in his eye socket. The anachronistic Chronos has a gold shag carpet at his place, and carries an hourglass which is used to stop and start time...

Their crazy world is filled with fun, mischief and friendly squabbles as they embark on one adventure after the other, including a Halloween Party, Goddess Ball and a Valentine Ball. Their various activities include playing pool, poker, surfing, bowling, a visit to a pre-school...and just imagine these two on vacation while the rest of the world is in a tizz! Really funny!

I must say that the author sure knows how to 'turn a phrase'. I really enjoyed the banter amongst the characters. The stories are witty and hilarious. Great entertainment!

5.0 su 5 stelle Very enjoyable - I hope there will be more 30 maggio 2014
Di mensagrrrl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This collection of short stories concerns gods, mostly Evil, Death, and Time. In "reality" they're uncaring breakers of man and mountain, but in this collection they're humanized in very humorous ways.

Death is friendly to small children, and chronos cries. Evil is a "cool guy" with succubi for serving girls.

I sped through the stories without putting them down and I'm tempted to harangue the author for more. I see her writing one a day; c'mon, a dickens or a Dumas would do it!

5.0 su 5 stelle Death Rides a Harley 19 maggio 2014

Death does indeed ride a Harley, and his best friend Chronos has a gold shag pile carpet.
Who knew?
I loved this slant-eyed look at Death and Chronus - yes they both have important jobs, but they also have fun. Lots of fun. Poker, movies, parties, a little flirting...
And to add to the joy? Jeeves finally is finally put in his rightful place.

5.0 su 5 stelle Death does ride a Harley! 17 maggio 2014
Di Christine Rains - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

An absolutely hilarious collection of stories featuring a peanut addicted Death and his best friend Chronos. Oh the mischief Immortals cause!

I love getting a peek into the weird and wonderful world of Immortals. Death and Chronos seem like an unlikely pair, but a funner duo I have yet to meet. They play poker, bowl, and even go on vacation. And does the world miss them when they do? You have to read to find out!
