Bible Stories for Adults by James Morrow

Morrow, a Nebula Award- and World Fantasy Award-winner, delves into matters both sacred and secular in this collection of 12 cheerfully blasphemous stories with characters including sexless androids waiting for the evolution of genitals; a lascivious sinner fished from the flood by Noah; and a computer that reconstructs the Ten Commandments from indecipherable shards. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.|Jobs back on the old dung heap, and he wants a rematch with God. A Series-700 computer successfully reconstructs the tablets with the Ten Commandments from a million indecipherable shards - only to have second thoughts. Sheila, the lascivious sinner fished from the Flood by the captain of the Ark, has an agenda all her own. A congregation of sexless androids believes Darwins theory of evolution applies to them and awaits the Great Genital Coming. And God justifies why he once beset mankind with an unusual plague. Why? Spare the rod, spoil the species, He says. (And Hes always right. Thats why Hes got the job.) James Morrow unabashedly delves into matters both sacred and secular in this collection of stories buoyed by his deliciously irreverent wit. Among the dozen offerings is Bible Stories for Adults, No. 17: The Deluge, winner of a Nebula Award for Best Short Story. Humorous, cheerfully blasphemous, and ultimately poignant, these tales show Morrow at his divine best.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
