Book Description

Leon Spingle's subpar walk through life is divinely sidetracked when a disfigured Son of God drags him into a cosmic murder mystery. Someone is knocking off alternate reality Jesusi and the key to finding the godkiller lies in Leon. With reluctant allies like Atomic Jesus, Mauled Jesus, and a spirited disciple named Dewey, Leon must face absurd dangers and dire introspection if reality has any hope of not unraveling.

Dripping with sacrilegious wit, Burnt Jesus explores science fiction and religion with a piercing eye and unflinching bravery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay, I confess, I Laughed Out Loud! 20 Dec. 2013
By Dii - Published on Amazon.com
Just when you think you’ve read just about every genre, with every possible plot, and scenario, along comes <b>Burnt Jesus</b> by Landon Alspiret. First, not to worry, lightening will not strike you, second, you may still suffer from anxiety and looking over your shoulder at times, again, not to worry. Third, you may suffer from sore laugh muscles, once you get over the “did he really say that?” feeling.

Leon was a blandly regular guy, he probably sets the standard for the definition of non-descript, over-looked, etc. when, one day, along comes a severely disfigured man who claims to be Jesus, from another plane of existence and he needs help from Leon to stop the mysterious murderer who is killing off all of the Jesusi from other realities. Is it Lucifer? If not, then who is it? Has Leon’s life finally taken on some excitement or has he gone over the edge? Once all of the remaining alternate reality Jesusi can get together, it is only with Leon’s help, that the answers may be found. What does this journey mean for Leon? Will he come out unscathed, or will some monumental change come over him? What of those from other realities? And…what’s so special about Leon’s appendix?

Burnt Jesus and his alternate reality selves are detailed, intelligent and a little hyper, preferring riddles to straightforward answers.

Are you looking for something a little out there, different, humorous, irreverent, yet harmless? Landon Alpsiret’s style is quirky, yet entertaining, playing with words, playing minds, pushing the envelope of creative writing! I see a cult following behind Mr. Alspiret’s writing, an yes, even mainstream readers looking for something a little different!

3.0 out of 5 stars hmmmmm........ 24 Jan. 2014

I'm a huge fan of satirical fiction loaded with religious icons and mythology. I love the idea of a myriad of Jesuses and their purpose in different realities but his story telling is a bit contrived and unnecessarily complicated.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Completely Original 8 Mar. 2014
By Roger Eschbacher - Published on Amazon.com
What if you found yourself in the middle of a meta-universal murder mystery where alternate reality 'Jesusi' (Jesuses?) were being picked off by a mysterious fiend? That's the very strange situation ordinary schlub Leon Spingle finds himself in when the title character, Burnt Jesus, enlists his aid to track down the murderer and save the remaining Sons of God from being wiped out completely.

Author Alspiret spins an interesting yarn that is well-paced, suspenseful, and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor.

On a side note: The book's description uses the word 'sacrilegious,' but I would soften that to 'irreverent.' As a person of faith (and avid sf/f reader) I wasn't the least bit offended by this innovative and interesting twist on our reality's 'Jesus story.'

Recommended.
4.0 out of 5 stars some good ideas here 13 Feb. 2014

a multi-dimensional detective story with an unlikely hero- and some truly unexpected twists. The idea that there's a Jesus for every Earth- and they all die in different ways- has been revealed elsewhere, so I'm not spoiling here.
Uneven in places, but turns in unexpected ways.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept and well written 25 Jan. 2014
By Keith Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
When I came across this book, I was first hooked by the cover and title, then the whole idea of multiple Jesusi. Since I love alternate realities, dimension hopping, and so on, I thought this would be right up my street. And it was.

This book is well written and filled with unique ideas. I can't imagine religious readers being offended by anything here, but if they were, I would say they were very insecure and/or have very thin skin. This tongue-in-cheek tale doesn't try to put down religion but instead multiples it across many universes.

If there WERE such a thing as alternate dimensions, the concept of Jesusi dying in different ways and at different times in history makes perfect sense. In fact, it's fascinating to think how much history would change if the Jesus we know had not been crucified but instead burned at a stake or drowned in a pool -- or perhaps he just slipped on a banana skin and banged his head; odds are that this would happen in some realities!
