Cover Notes

A fantasy novel written by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, it is a sequel to Inferno, the 1976 Hugo Award- and Nebula Award-nominated book by the same authors. The novel continues the story of deceased science fiction writer Allen Carpenter (who spelled his name "Carpentier" on his novels) in his quest to help other damned souls in Hell. Like the first book, extensively references Dante's Inferno.

Jerry Pournelle, one of the book's co-authors, described the book as "Dante meets Vatican II."
