A professional assassin is hired by a TV evangelist to kill God. The story
is told by the assassin, whose philosophy is that organized religion and government
are evil rackets, especially Bible-based religion. The plot involves pagan religion,
magic, hallucination-inducing drugs, a space shuttle, a telepathic 12-year-old girl,
on old witch, and a beautiful blonde goddess, all of which help him to get Jehovah
to commit suicide. The goddess shoots the evangelist, who turned out to be Jehovah’s
brother Satan. At the end, nobody believes in Jehovah any more and the assassin is
looking for a way to reunite with the goddess.
It won the Prometheus Award. The book is anti-state, but the emphasis is anti-Jehovah.
