Psychedelic 60s SF version of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, quite nicely done. The Orpheus character is sympathetic and well-realized, as is his demonic opponent, Kid Death. Eurydice is suitably beautiful, tragic and mysterious, but doesn't have much of a personality. Not a serious problem, however, since she's dead for most of the book.

Brad "Psychedelic 60s SF version of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth"...SOLD!

Manny Glad you thought so :) With the right director, it could be an amazing movie. I just can't come up with a name though!
