Madison Spencer, the liveliest, snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the adventures in the afterlife begun in Damned. Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from Hell, she now wanders the Purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, seeking her do-gooding celebrity parents, fighting the malign control of Satan, recounting the disgracefully funny (to us, anyway) encounter with her grandfather in a fetid highway rest stop in upstate New York when she . . . oh, never mind, and climaxing in a rendezvous with destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific called, not at all accidentally, Madlantis.Dante Aligheri, watch your back, Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on you.

Century B.C. the Greek lawmaker Solon journeyed to the Egyptian city of Saisand brought back the following account of the end of the world. According to the priests at theTemple of Neith, a cataclysm will sweep the Earth with flames and poisonous smoke. In a singleday and night an entire continent will founder and sink into the sea, and a false messiah will leadall of humanity to its doom.The Egyptian seers predicted that the Apocalypse will begin on a quiet night, on a loftyhilltop perched high above the kingdom of Los Angeles. There, the ancient oracles sing, a lock will snap open. Among the great walled houses of Beverly Crest, a stout bolt will slide aside. Asrecorded by Solon, a hinged pair of security gates will swing wide apart. Below these, the realmsof Westwood and Brentwood and Santa Monica await sleeping, lain out in a spider’s web of streetlights. And as the last clock tick of midnight echoes away, within those wide-open gateswill dwell only darkness and silence until an engine can be heard rumbling to life, and two lightswill seem to lead that noise forward. And from out of that gateway will issue a Lincoln TownCar which slouches forth to begin its slow descent down the hairpin curves of upper HollywoodBoulevard.That night, as depicted in ancient prophecy, is tranquil, without a breath of wind;nevertheless, with the Lincoln’s slow progress a tempest begins to mount in its wake.
