The Incarnations of Immortality series shows us a world were magic and technology have developed together and deities like Death, Time, Fates, War, Mother Earth, Evil, Good, and Night are supernatural "offices" held by humans for a length of time.

Bearing an Hourglass is the 2nd book in the Incarnations of Immortality and we are introduced to the aspect of time. Norton is an average guy and when his life when it starts to get pointless for him. Norton is then convinced to take up the mantle of time. Norton begins living backwards, present to past. He spends time learning his duties and experimenting with the powers of the hourglass he carries for his station. Satan's scheming is again thwarted this time by Norton as the book progresses.
