Help Wanted: New Devil

The Enduring - 1

Even the afterlife gets decided in a committee.

The afterlife is more like a large retirement community than a fiery pit where even collecting souls has been automated. Death has nothing on his to-do list until his co-worker, the Devil, tells him she’s retiring. For years he’s relied on her to keep the ever-growing population of Patala running smoothly. After five hundred years, he needs to replace the most important woman in his life.

The only good thing is that the hiring process can’t kill him.
