Hard to read, the annotations were helpful, but the oversized pages still made reading difficult. Still, the annotations were worth the effort. Read full review

About the author (2008)

Andrew Barger's latest novel series is a trilogy called THE DIVINE DANTES that follows the characters of "The Divine Comedy" through a messed-up modern world. It's rock-n-roll. It's laugh-out-loud funny. It's the most unique love story you've ever read. Think "The Divine Comedy" meets "The Catcher in the Rye" on a smoky lawn at a rock concert.

Book I (Squirt Guns in Hades) is the OTHER modern book about The Inferno. A Publisher's Weekly Reviewer calls it "[A] lively and good-natured work with a great deal of humor and wordplay . . .." While an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Expert says, "[R]eminds me a little of the fun I find in Carl Hiaasen or Christopher Moore, but he definitely has his own vibe . . .."

Andrew is also the award winning author of "Coffee with Poe: A Novel of Edgar Allan Poe's Life," and "Mailboxes - Mansions - Memphistopheles: A Collection of Dark Tales." He has edited a number of anthologies:

Edgar Allan Poe Annotated and Illustrated Entire Stories and Poems
Leo Tolstoy's Greatest Short Stories Annotated

BlooDeath: The Best Vampire Stories 1800-1849

Phantasmal: The Best Ghost Stories 1800-1849

Shifters: The Best Werewolf Stories 1800-1849

6a66le: The Best Horror Short Stories 1800-1849

Mesaerion: The Best Science Fiction Stories 1800-1849

Most of the time, however, Andrew is a shiny-happy guy. He would love to start a band if only he could settle on a name for it. He lives (and frequently get lost) in the vast world of his active imagination. It is a happy place. Really, it is. Thanks for your interest!
