“This could be Heaven
or this could be Hell.”
— “Hotel California”

Heaven —

Eugene Burdick, 'The Blue of Capricorn'

or —

Eugene Burdick, 'The 480'

Hell —

Eugene Burdick, 'The Ninth Wave'

Apparently from the back cover of The Ninth Wave:

“Fear + hate = power was Mike Freesmith’s formula for success.  He first tested it in high school when he seduced his English teacher and drove a harmless drunk to suicide.  He used it on the woman who paid his way through college.  He used it to put his candidate in the governor’s chair, and to make himself the most ruthless, powerful kingmaker in American politics.”

Don’t forget greed. See yesterday’s Friday the 13th entries.
