The Greatest Sinner Ever, a novel about the life of Nostradamus.

Chapter 1

"Brrr, it's so cold in here!"
"Stop complaining, Mercury; only thirty-one days till you'll be turned around."
"Who's there?"
"I am Hermes, your higher self."
"Hermes, your visit is timely because those boring turns around my orbit are driving me stark-raving mad."
"Well, I'll tell you, Zeus has decided that your assignment is almost done. You only have to be of the flesh for a while before you get to shine."
"And how do you know all this?"
"I am the fastest one in the Milky Way, and I put my ear to the ground here and there, so to speak. Besides, it's my job to relay messages."
"How much longer do I have?"
"Until you're lined up with the Sun and the Earth, so not much longer."
"Hmm, at least it's a change from being a dead planet. My only diversion is causing shock waves and sun baths."
"You might well come to miss this simple existence, my material brother, but please be patient just a little longer."
A month later, an extraordinary birth took place on planet Earth. A person with unprecedented prophetic gifts was born. The astrologer's birth in the village took place at the very beginning of the Renaissance, in the French town of Saint Rémy de Provence.
