Link to Mailbag Article: What’s fire and brimstone?
[[Rounding this out, if being charred by fire and brimstone doesn’t bother you, and you want some scarey torments in hell, try Dante’s Inferno or Goethe’s Faust. You’ll find some terrifying stuff. Gnawing on your own flesh, f’rinstance, how’s that grab ya? Algebra … hmph.]]
Pretty awful. Richard Preston, author of “The Hot Zone” about Ebola Virus wrote a later book (fiction) called “The Cobra Event,” about bio-terrorism. He graphically describes a disease that causes people to gnaw on and consume parts of their own bodies. Some of this book is based on real stuff - I hope this part isn’t. Hollywood, of course, has bought the rights to this story for a movie. Can’t wait.
