Athanasios works in Montreal as a graphic/video artist, illustrator & writer in dvd production & film. He has been researching & crafting Mad Gods: weaving in factual & rumoured history for over ten years.
Athanasios has been interested in religion & faith since childhood. This led to studying a bewildering variety of beliefs from pagan, wicca, judaism, christianity, islam, to hindu, buddhism, shinto, luciferianism & much more. The interest made its own momentum & brought Mad Gods.
His other interests include most entertainment, from film, to television & books. He won't try video games for the same reason he doesn't keep his favourite booze in the house; he would do nothing else. There was a short time that he was into World of Warcraft but that became the obsession he knew it would be. He had to leave it for a deeper & more engrossing one: Mad Gods.

Commitment picks up the story of the anti-Christ some time after the end of Predatory Ethics, and brings you back into the anti-Christ’s life. He is now locked in an asylum, having been charged and convicted of killing and brutally dismembering the bodies and putting them into poses (which are described in detail). It also brings the churches and the Templars back in as they are trying to figure out how to get him out and make him return to what he was born to do.
The research that went into this book again was amazing, as the author describes some of the serial killers of the time and how they would have “presented” offerings to the anti-Christ as a way to gain favor with him. The funny part was that the people working at the asylum did not seem to understand what they were dealing with, and just think that the boy is another whack-job with delusions of grandeur.
This book was not as long as the first, and I quickly mowed thru it, but was happy to see that Simon Magus made another appearance, and I believe it was revealed (or maybe I just read it that way) that he was a vampire. His desire for one of the higher beings in the Satanist army was well written and will be interesting to see where it goes in future books, as this book again left the reader waiting for what was next.
Again, this is a deep book and deals with very mature subjects as well as multiple religions and their rituals, which are described in detail. There is swearing and violence in this book as in the first, but if you are strongly grounded in your faith, and want a story of “what-if” for the anti-Christ, then I heartily recommend both of these books for you to get. If blood, gore, swearing, and violence is not your cup of tea, then steer clear. You have been warned.
