Publisher's Summary

World on Fire picks up where Magnificent Vibration left off: with the hapless Bobby Cotton and his beloved bride (and former nun), Alice, having unleashed a global pandemic that’s fast wiping out half the world’s population - and at God’s request.  

Bobby guides a very pregnant Alice and a motley crew of survivors to the Holy Land, darting through the hazards of a world that has fallen to pieces in a way more thorough than any we have seen.  

But Bobby’s newborn daughter is born with astonishing abilities, and she’s not alone. A miraculous Convergence is headed for Galilee, where the stakes include survival of the Earth as we know it and the human race.  

By turns hilarious and deadly serious, World on Fire explores the fate of the Earth in an utterly original way.

About the Creator and Performer

Rick Springfield is a Grammy Award–winning musician and actor and author of The New York Times best-selling memoir Late, Late Night, which Rolling Stone named one of the twenty-five greatest rock memoirs off all time. He made his fiction debut with The New York Times best-selling Magnificent Vibration. Springfield has scored 17 US Top 40 hits—16 of which were written and composed by him—including the iconic Jessie’s Girl. An accomplished and versatile actor, Springfield starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film Ricki and the Flash, gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Irving Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama True Detective, earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit Supernatural, and most recently played the insane Pastor Charles on FX’s worldwide hit series American Horror Story. World on Fire is his second novel. He is already hard at work on a third.
