Atheist/Religious Fiction
Maybe there is and I haven't noticed it, but there seems to be a lack of the sort of religious fiction an atheist might write. By that I mean stories featuring or set in Heaven or Hell, with God, Jesus, Satan, etc as characters.

It occurs to me that there's huge potential in this, but even with the number of people self publishing with kindle, I haven't found anything.

Ever heard of the Bible? Smile

Paradise Lost and The Divine Comedy also come to mind, though they don't exactly fit what you're suggesting as I don't think they were meant to be exactly fiction not to mention their age. I agree though, that does sound like something I would buy and it seems there would be a market for it. However, I could see publishing companies having a hard timing signing on to something like that thanks to the religious majority.

Thankfully, that's getting easier and easier to do these days, but it's hard to get noticed that way.

I have a confession to make, I'm tinkering with a few ideas along the lines I put in the OP and this is what I'll be doing. I'm just wondering what people think of the idea.

Have you checked out the comic book world? There are several that are set in heaven/hell and have many of the aspects your talking about.

Tons of religious fiction.

I must admit, I'm not much of a comic book fan, but now you mention it I can see that the genre is perhaps more likely to go down this route. I might have a look at what there is.

Why thank you, although its equally appropriate for a fat Mormon who likes sci-fi and makes stuff up.

Incidentally, don't you think the Mormon view of the universe is a wonderful ready made environment for fiction?
