Adam Oster is the author of several series of novels. He’s also a blogger, a father, a husband, a driving-time singer, and an amateur Neil Diamond impersonator (well, he aspires to be that last one someday).
He lives in Wisconsin. It’s cold some of the times. Other times it’s not quite so cold.
He drinks beer.
He eats cheese.
He wears long underwear (only on special occasions).
He’s also done a few other things he’s not so proud of, such as being the writer/director/actor/editor for such failed film projects as Deadline and Jack and Jill. Ask him about them sometime and hear his world-famous pained groan.
He also watches a lot of movies, reads as much as he is capable, and hangs out behind a computer screen for periods of time so long he has probably already gone blind.

As a fan of the mythology that has grown around the Judeo-Christian religions, I was quite interested to see what Haig would do with the character of Sammael, who is, in my opinion, one of the more fascinating characters of Biblical lore. And although this short story is but a taste of the full story, I have to admit that the taste has made me crave more about this world that Haig's created around a well-known character.
The time period this story is set in will immediately be familiar to most readers. One can almost hear the Southern drawl coming out of the characters' dialogue as they make their way through these few pages.
But what is most interesting all lies within the character of Sammael and the cryptic hints we are given to the greater story at hand, a story that I can't help but feel is one of ever-lasting unrequited love.
The tragic nature of Sammael, a child of God who was cast out for being imperfect, is enough to pull us into wanting to know more about his history on this planet, but Haig manages to create even more intrigue behind the figure through subtle hints at a greater history, and a constant internal battle between good and evil.
I'm eager to read more about this life Haig has created for the so-called Angel of Death in her full-length novel Glory!
