On A Pale HorseBook - 1984
Shooting Death was a mistake, as Zane soon discovered. For the man who killed the Incarnation of Death was immediately forced to assume the vacant position! Thereafter, he must speed over the world, riding his pale horse, and ending the lives of others.
Zane was forced to accept his unwelcome task, despite the rules that seemed woefully unfair. But then he found himself being drawn into an evil plot of Satan. Already the prince of Evil was forging a trap in which Zane must act to destroy Luna, the woman he loved.
He could see only one possible way to defeat the Father of Lies. It was unthinkable--but he had no other solution!
From Library Staff
When Zane shot Death, he learned, too late, that he would have to assume his place, speeding over the world riding his pale horse, and ending the lives of others. The first in the Incarnations of Immortality series.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
The story's protagonist, Zane, accidentally murders Death and must assume the Grim Reaper's task of doling out the final demise of people around the globe. It's not a job he asked for, but due to the circumstances and laws of the netherworld, he's bound to a contract with no escape clause. This, the first book in Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series, is by far the best.
