    DescriptionAllan Carpenter escaped from hell once but remained haunted by what he saw and endured. He has now returned, on a mission to liberate those souls unfairly tortured and confined. Partnering with the legendary poet and suicide, Sylvia Plath, Carpenter is a modern-day Christ who intends to harrow hell and free the damned. But now that he's returned to this Dantesque Inferno, can he ever again leave?

    Review quote
    ""Inferno" is quite literally a cake walk through hell. I kid you not, Niven and Pournelle have had the chutzpah to rewrite Dante's "Inferno" as if they were some hybrid of Roger Zelazny, Robert Heinlein, and Phil Jose Farmer. You are right there in the nether-reaches of the ultimate Sam Peckinpah movie with all the matter-of-fact solidity of a Hal Clement novel."--Norman Spinrad, author of "Mexica" "A dazzling tour de force."--Poul Anderson, author of "For Love and Glory """ "A fast, amusing and vivid book, by a writing team noted for intelligence and imagination."-- Roger Zelazny "The somber beauty of "Inferno" brought up to the twentieth century with care and humor and with some sins Dante didn't even suspect."--Frank Herbert, author of "Dune"
