Resurrection Man

by Sean Stewart
Release date: 1995
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, magical realism

Dante stared and stared at the corpse, but a blindness waited behind his eyes. It was as if he couldn't see the body: couldn't grasp it, or what it meant.

He had never felt fear like this, not in the worst moments of his life. The angel madness was thick in him, and with it came the inevitable dread. His skin crawled as if trying to escape; goosebumps sprang up in patches on his arms and neck and prickled uncontrollably across his face. His eyes were open but he couldn't see.

What did it mean?

Christ.

What did it mean?

"O Jesus," he whispered. "Let's pretend it's all a bad dream, why don't we? Leave the damn thing here and go back to bed and hope it's gone by morning."

His foster-brother Jet grinned as Cain must have grinned at Abel. "Over your dead body," he said.

It wasn't the corpse of someone who looked like him, but Dante himself...

With these simple yet startling words, award-winning author Sean Stewart lures us into his most imaginative work of fiction. Resurrection Man is the story of an angel raised among mortals, reluctant to use his powers but ultimately compelled to fulfill his fate. It is a tale of magic and mystery, guilt and redemption. A Pandora's box of miracles for a world on the edge of despair.
