Jerry Pournelle Synopsis: Inferno by Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven is the first novel in the Inferno series. After being thrown out the window of his luxury apartment, science fiction writer Allen Carpentier wakes to find himself at the gates of hell. Feeling he’s landed in a great opportunity for a book, he attempts to follow Dante’s road map.

As he struggles to escape, he’s taken through new, puzzling, and outlandish versions of sin – recast for the present day.
