For Elias, being murdered is just the beginning. The unlucky "winner" of a celestial lottery after his death, Elias has the role of Forerunner thrust upon him. He's given the powers of angels and devils in order to cast the thousand-year judgment of what forces rule the world. He must choose Heaven, Hell, or a twisted sort of self-rule for Humankind. Matthias, a former Forerunner, mentors Elias in the use of his new powers and attempts to prepare him for the judgment he must render. Elias visits people in all walks of life throughout the world and experiences extreme good and evil firsthand. The emotional challenges forever change him. Elias quickly discovers that powerful, ancient forces are out to stop the judgment and erase the Forerunner from existence. Fallen angel Warrish tricks Elias into invoking Armageddon, and while Heaven and Hell are destroying each other on a fragile Earth battlefield, Warrish will use the ancient scrolls to attemp to destroy Creation. Elias is left to decide humanity's fate. Problem is, he doesn't like any of his choices. But he has to make a choice soon before there isn't any world left for Heaven and Hell to fight over.

Review:

"From a darkly humorous tale of the power of words (Death and the Librarian) to a never-before-published response to events of September 11 (Ilion), Friesner's 12 stories illustrate the author's acutely sensitive vision of wonder in the everyday world... Known primarily for his 'Star Wars' novels... Zahn's short stories also deliver strong plots and memorable characters... Zebrowski's many novels (e.g. Macrolife) mark him as a visionary as well as a master of hard sf. The ten short stories collected in In the Distance provide a benchmark of his creativity... the author expands his concept of the human condition to embrace the stars. Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent author's, these three volumes belong in most libraries where short sf is popular."
-- Library Journal (December 2002) (Library Journal 20021201)

"...Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent authors, these three volumes (Death and the Librarian and Other Stories/ Star Song and Other Stories/ In the Distance, and Ahead in Time) belong in most libraries where short sf is popular."
-- Library Journal (December 2002) (Library Journal 20021201)

"Four more titles in Five Star's new series (God Is an Iron and Other Stories/ Generation Gap and Other Stories/ The Lady Vanishes and Other Oddities of Nature/ Suppose They Gave a Peace and Other Stories) of short fiction by noteworthy sf authors offer a variety of tales that illustrate the depth and staying power of the genre...Most of the stories in these volumes have only appeared in periodicals. Libraries wishing to augment their sf or short fiction collections should consider any of them."
-- Library Journal (June 2002) (Library Journal 20020615)

"This apocalyptic thriller is also a coming of age story. Abandoned by his father and feeling that his mother neglects him, Elias goes from a pleasure seeking rebel to a man capable of choosing what he deems is best for mankind. There is non-stop action, great character development and an exciting storyline in this unique speculative fiction work. J.J. Ace has written a work that will be put on the readers? keeper shelf."
--The Readers Guild, July 2005 (The Readers Guild 20050701)

"JUDGMENT DAY will cause the reader to look inside himself or herself and rethink some preconceived notions. Is there such a thing as absolute Good or Evil? Or would too much of either be a bad thing? It is rather rare for this reviewer to come across a story that is so enjoyable while being so educational. This reviewer would highly recommend JUDGMENT DAY to anyone as she feels that everyone would get pleasure out of the book."
