The Undying Fire

by H. G. Wells
Release date: 1919
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

A game of chess in the heavenly realms, and God and Satan discourse on the nature of mankind.

1919. The Creator determines and conceals the aim of the game, and it is never clear whether the purpose of the adversary is to defeat or to assist him in his unfathomable project. Apparently, the adversary cannot win, but also he cannot lose so long as he can keep the game going. But he is concerned, it would seem, in preventing the development of any reasoned scheme in the game.
