A Farce to Be Reckoned With

by Roger Zelazny, Robert Sheckley
Release date: 1995
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

In Bring Me the Head of Prince Charming and If at Faust You Don't Succeed, the masters of comic fantasy Roger Zelazny and Robert Sheckley told of two Millennial contests between Good and Evil. Well, now it's that quiet time between Millennia, and the demon Azzie is becoming bored and restless...

Then inspiration hits. On a devilish sabbatical in Europe, Azzie discovers that morality plays are all the rage. He decides to strike back by producing an "immorality play," in which seven nondescript human pilgrims will be allowed by magic to attain their hearts' desires. But the forces of Good are determined to close the play before it opens. New characters suddenly start roaming the stage, such as a Grateful Dead-listening Cyclops, and Azzie's own protagonists begin changing their hearts' desires on the slightest whim. This is one theatrical production that could do without an angel – and there's even worse news waiting in the wings...
