What makes for a bitter soul? Is it the disappointments in life a person experiences? Can we blame our environment or our genetics for our negative attitudes, or do we all possess an inextinguishable flame of free choice by which we are either condemned or redeemed? Or is it all up to the grace of God?
And from a larger perspective, do our negative attitudes doom us to a post-Armageddon desolation, or can utopia be just around the corner?
In Of Bitter Souls Chuck Satterlee explores these questions in a highly entertaining manner. This seriesí main characters are typically flawed and quirky human beings on a path toward redemption. Along the way their personal bitternesses - their various maladjusted means of dealing with harsh reality - keep getting in their way, but a guiding light pierces steadily through the zombie graveyard fog, showing the path to a better world.
Iím happy to be along for the ride. I havenít had much chance until now to illustrate vampires and historical spooks and such, and this series promises to provide lots of Cajun ghostbusting with Matrix style. Iím having a ball!
Is Armageddon inevitable? The answer is left up to us, each and every one of us bitter souls.
