Never trust a demon in love. When Beelzebub shows up pregnant and afraid, Moloch has to pick up the pieces. What do you do when a thirty-foot long beetle fallen in love with a pile of rancid eyeballs? You do the only thing you can: you try to turn things to your favor. Can Moloch help Beelzebub’s 412 children escape, and with it start a revolution in Hell?
In the tradition of the Kindle Singles, “Long Road to Ruin” is a bite-sized voyage into the underworld (~40 pages). “Long Road to Ruin” is part of the Hell Mythos, a connected series of short stories, novellas, and novels that tells the inside story of Hell, from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high. Come see the devils as they live their demonic lives, in all their glory, evil, and confusion.
This collection also includes “A Walking Tour of Hell,” a pamphlet designed for the newly damned, and “The Kindness of the Twins,” a stirring call for democratic elections in the underworld.
Written by Kyle J. Acosta, the Hell Mythos is a new take on the underworld in the rich tradition of Tad Williams’s The Dirty Streets of Heaven, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s Inferno, James Blish’s The Devil’s Day and the Heroes in Hell series.
