“Anointed: The Passion of Timmy Christ, CEO” by Zachary Steele


Read Anointed: The Passion of Timmy Christ, CEO

“When the Anti-Christ and Satan entered the bar, nobody took notice.”

That’s a great first line. Believe it or not, it’s not the start of a joke. It’s the first line of Zachary Steele’s novel Anointed, which is a scream. If you’re a fan of people like Christopher Moore or Douglas Adams, take a look. Sadly, (in my humble opinion) it hasn’t received the attention it deserves.

From what I hear through the grapevine, Zachary Steele was supposed to be interviewed on a radio show called something like The Open Mind, but they cancelled him when the found out the book wasn’t a slam on religion. Apparently, these are fundamentalist atheists that can only be open minded in one way. What it IS is a biting satire of the corporatization of religion, and it’s a scream. It’s a genuinely funny book, and well worth a read.

A word of disclosure: I know Zach, and his publisher, Mercury Retrograde Press, is also mine.
