Project Pope by Clifford D. Simak Book Review.

Doctor Jason Tennyson is on the run from planet Gut Check.

He’s a stowaway on the Wayfarer, a ship full of pilgrims.

Destination: The Vatican.

The End of Nothing houses the electronic pope.

The listeners are astral travelers, revealing mysteries about other luminaries, employs of robot pope.

A planet full of walking chalkboards, upside down squids, smoke filled sentience, and essential worker cones.

The chalkboards communicate with equations, the plopper alien is a lesser demigod, the smokey sphere is a bald eagle, the cone people handle transportation.

The Listener, Mary, is canonized for sainthood.

She meets God on a golden staircase. Musical spheres play a glorious harmony. God turns out to be a black man.

He waves his thick black digit at Mary, exclaiming, “Naughty, naughty, naughty.”

Mary dies shortly thereafter.

Revelations too much to bare.

The Holy Spirit saves everybody in the form of a shimmering dust cloud.

The Whisperer. Tessellating diamonds.

Always follow the Holy Spirit.
