Surprinsingly good Gotterdammerung narrative about Zeus confronting the beginnings of Christiandom that reaches amazing poetic heights, nearly rivaling any Greek or Roman mythos. It's a great corollary to the author's Magic Makes You Strange, since it's told from the viewpoint of the magician Edward Whistman, a character in that book. Take heed of the author's opening warning about that "this story is inappropriate for the dogmatic, the humorless, or the fanatical"... he MEANS it. In every book, there's an intriguing character or two, and I particularly felt a great empathy with Golgee, the wood spirit that hangs around Zeus; I really ended wanting to know more about this little guy; but it's obvious that the writer is readying him to become a major character elsewhere, so he was wise not to tell me more in the book... Only time will tell... I have only a caveat about "Confessions of Zeuspater" and it is that you'll get a lot more out of it if you have had a classical education... Besides of this small detail, this is Noah Mullette-Gillman at his best.
