What you will find within might not be what you'd expect from the title that's been given it. "Gospel" literally means "good news", so it is that, it is good news. And "Judas"? That's meant to get your attention. It's not about him at all, or at least, 95% of it. It is an homage to the man, however, for much respect is due him, who has suffered from the "Mary Magdalene effect", which is to say, they've been knocked down a whole mess of pegs to a point where they've been down so long it looks like up to them. What is inside: you'll find visions, madness, dreams. Some of it stories about what's been flitting around in this hyper-psyche of a mind between my shoulders, but mostly it's philosophy. Like what to make of something the big JC (yes, that JC) told me: "Work is magic." You won't believe the kinds of things I came up with if you follow that logic to its inevitable conclusions! I also thought up an answer to the question, "Can God make a rock He couldn't lift?" And there's some poetry in there, for good measure. It's chopped up into bite sized pieces--pick it up, put it down, pick it up later. Give it a taste. It might be worth your while.

Product Description:

There were stars that fell the night the Dragon thrashed like that. I saw no sun or moon that day. Many a year that foreshadowed the Fall, but the Fall took mere, bare seconds, and what was foretold unfolded like no man ever writ. Where had I been before this? That my whole life would prepare me for this short space of time? And where am I led after? At times to think that there was nothing but the War that made my life, as I stood before angels and did my part. Dreams have not such intensity, though I have thought myself mad at certain episodes. The vignettes I flash are not quite from what an ordinary life will see, even when on the surface they are like logic... To have found meaning while hovering in the stratospherics of experience, and from the pits of madness: I know why it is that life is pain. Are we meant to know why? Or to shut ourselves from the ones who know the secret? To have walked through worlds separated into the stages of a life... The fantasy has returned me from the sky, and I am left earthbound, reeking of starlight.
