“Dear The Politician…Congratulations on your recent death and thank you for your interest in joining God and his Angelic Cohort in Heaven. Regretfully, I have to inform that on this occasion your application has not been successful. However, alternative accommodation has been found for you in Hell. We very much hope you enjoy your stay.
The Heavenly Bureaucracy.”
Once upon a time… there was a wicked politician (is there any other sort?) who, unlike most of his kind, did NOT escape justice for his crimes…
In this Tale from Anywhere, an evil politician is executed for war crimes and finds himself in Hell. This seemingly normal event causes chaos to break out in Heaven as a furious Devil demands a meeting with God. He wants The Politician out of his infernal domain because The Politician is not suffering the Torments of Hell but enjoying every blood-splattered moment of them! God agrees to the meeting…
…but what on Earth (and Heaven) do you do with someone who is too wicked for Hell?
Oh, and were God and the Devil really once friends and partners?
Editorial praise for Tales from Anywhere
“Brilliant comic technique, and a glorious sense of moral outrage at the current mess in which our country seems mired, combine here to make a unique reading experience. Often laugh-out-loud funny, the real-life characters behind these innocuous fairy tales and fables hit you by surprise, a series of sharp rocks hidden in those snowballs. Amazingly, with all the faux-naievete and children’s book elements gleefully displayed here, the writing never becomes twee or condescending. I don’t know where this writer’s been all his life, but I intend to catch up with him, and keep an eye on where he’s headed next!… Bravo, Mr. Hennerly!” – VINE VOICE
“This is the most spiritually and intellectually worthwhile and inspiring read I have encountered in a very long time ever since my days as a theological studies student. To me it is a humanist masterpiece on par with my favorite classists such as Faulkner, Lawrence and Bellow. It subverts conventional morals and doctrines while anchoring the plot development and the characters upon what I would call authentic virtues, Intuitive Knowledge and Intuitive Truth. Hennerley speaks Truth in this world of lies that shackle us from birth and asphyxiate us into death, all the while conspiring against our very vitality of the spirit. I cannot wait to read more similar stories from Hennerley! Thank you Hennerley for shining a beacon of light amidst such darkness we live under.” – US REVIEWS
