SAMURAI CAT GOES TO HELL by Mark E. Rogers

SAMURAI CAT GOES TO HELL

KIRKUS REVIEW

Fifth and (the publisher says) final outing for Rogers’s indescribable comedy fantasy (Samurai Cat Goes to the Movies, 1994, etc.). Miaowara Tomokato, along with his swords, puns, and nephew/sidekick Shiro, is still pursuing his task of tracking down and killing everyone responsible for the death of his master, Lord Nobunaga. Next on the list is Genghis Khan, whose Mongol hordes are unfortunately now equipped with Kalashnikovs, courtesy of a sweet deal by Shiro; even worse, they’ve converted their (Mongol) pencil factory into making suitcase-sized nuclear bombs (again thanks to Shiro). So when the Khan explodes a nuke to thwart our heroes, Tomokato and Shiro are blown all to Hell. Even there, they have work to do: Heaven would like Tomokato to kill Satan and wind up the infernal regions for keeps. Check one: (a) hysterically funny, I loved it, (b) appallingly stupid, I hated it, or (c) unsuitable for life-forms with more than minimal cognitive abilities.
