Blasphemy
Mike Resnick

Blasphemy contains all things blasphemous from Mike Resnick: two short novels and five short stories. Walpurgis III is a novel about a world populated by covens and Satanists that is suddenly confronted by the very Evil it's been giving lip service to, when a genocidal maniac who makes Hitler look like a choir boy shows up and demands asylum. The killing doesn't stop just because they worship him, and eventually an assassin is hired to terminate him...and the book examines an uncomfortable philosophical question: who is the more evil, the man who kills from compulsion, because no other alternative ever presents itself to him; or the man who kills from calculation, who sees all the alternatives but chooses to kill anyway? The Branch is the story of the true Messiah of the Old Testament, who shows up at the end of the 21st century...and as the Old Testament makes clear, this guy is not a prince of peace. The five short stories are all conversations elaborating the philosophies of God, Jesus, and the Wandering Jew, from the perspective of Resnick.
