Morrow is one of those writers who comes up with ideas so good, I can’t help but read every one of his books. From the mind that brought you Towing Jehovah (in which God’s massive corpse is found floating in the Atlantic, triggering a massive cover-up by the Catholic Church) and Shambling Toward Hiroshima (did you know Godzilla was produced as a propaganda film to scare the Japanese into surrendering during WWII, lest the U.S. unleash its devastating secret weapon: an army of giant, mutant iguanas? No?) comes the story of a hack writer who is the only one who can stop a looming alien invasion—by writing a television show that makes the inherent absurdities of religious faith seem wholly logical.
