I found the book enjoyable, but too short. It reminds me, for some reason, of Pratchett's "Johnny Maxwell" trilogy. I found "Eric" amusing, slightly stereotyped in its description of Hades, but with references which definitely tie it into the Discworld series. Why shouldn't Hell be similar to a large corporation? That was the unsupportable objection of one reviewer who may not have followed Pratchett from "Strata" forward, as he has matured into a very good, probably excellent, writer of fantasy with a terrific sense of fun and overall humor. Yeas, he does, at times, moralize, but who doesn't, given the chance?
