Heroes in Hell
Library Journal calls Janet Morris’ Heroes in Hell series ” a garden of infernal delights.”
This critically acclaimed and award-winning series is built on the premise that “Nobody who is anybody went to heaven.” Morris combines the talents of various writers with her own to create volumes filled with vignettes that span times and cultures while focusing on a specific theme, so that individual volumes can stand alone.
Miriam Van Scott’s Encyclopedia of Hell (St. Martin’s Press) decalres, “Innovative and clever, the Damned Saga weaves myth, legend, fact and fantasy into a fascinating tapestry ofg underworld lore.”

What Reviewers Say - About Hell Bound
Current Novels & Other Works.
An international #1 Bestseller
"...Weston has not only expanded the scope of the Heroes in Hell series, he has introduced new themes and concepts, and new characters. He creates a fresh vision of Hell and presents to us a seedy underworld uniquely his own. Grim lives in Olde London Town, a macabre mockery of our earthly London. Rather than make up strange-sounding, nearly unpronounceable names, and because Hell is a twisted echo of Earth, Weston (as do all those who write for Heroes in Hell) comes up with names and titles that bear a warped familiarity to places and things we know. For example: Paris is Perish, the Seine River is River Inseine, Drury Lane is Dreary Lane, Piccadilly Circus is Icepiccadilly, Westminster in Westmonster, and so on. That’s all part of the fun, part of the gallows humor that is inherent in Hell. Everything on Earth has its infernal counterpart in Hell. Not only do we go through the looking glass and down the rabbit hole when entering Hell, we also enter another, diabolical dimension where not only pain and torment and suffering rule, there’s also a grand touch of irony to everything that happens in the underworlds. Hell mimics Earth in a very fiendish way....."
In hell, none of the condemned believes they deserve to be there. And that’s fine, so long as they’re not foolish enough to try and do anything about it. For those that do, there’s always Satan’s Reaper–and chief bounty hunter–Daemon Grim. Feared throughout the many layers of the underverse, no one in their right mind dares to cross him.
However, when Grim discovers that someone has attempted to evade injustice, and seems hell-bent on gaining access to ancient angelic artefacts proscribed since the time of the original rebellion in heaven, circumstances point to the fact they may be doing just that. The question is...why?
Thus begins an investigation that leads Grim throughout the many contradictory and baffling levels of the underworld, where he unearths a conspiracy that is not only eating its way like a cancer through the highest echelons of Hellion society, but one which threatens the very stability of Satan’s rule. As you can imagine, Grim’s response is bloody, brutal, and despicably wicked.
