The Judas Riffs: 01 A Riff on the Greatest Story Ever Told

Title: The Judas Riffs: 01 A Riff on the Greatest Story Ever Told
Author: Harlequin
Universe: Original, but inspired by Jesus Christ Superstar
Characters featured: Judas & Jesus
Category, Word count: Short story; 950 words
Rating: PG13
Summary, Notes, Warnings: While I am an atheist, I am fascinated by the Jesus story, and Judas’s role in it. Jesus Christ Superstar has been an intrinsic part of my life since I was about twelve, which is a long time ago now! These stories were inspired by the rock opera and the ideas behind it, though I feel the stories are my own.
Believers may find these stories challenging, wrongheaded or just plain distasteful – but all I can do is assure you that I mean no disrespect to Jesus. Please remember that the stories are told from Judas’s point of view, and ultimately Jesus remains an enigma to him.

The Judas Riffs: 02 Jesus, Joan & Kit

Title: The Judas Riffs: 02 Jesus, Joan & Kit
Author: Harlequin
Universe: Original, but inspired by Jesus Christ Superstar
Characters featured: ‘Judas’ & Jesus & ‘Mary’
Category, Word count: Short story; 1492 words
Rating: PG13
Summary, Notes, Warnings: This story follows on from the logic of the first Judas Riff: if this scenario must be played out again and again until Judas and the rest of humanity gets it right, then this is the tale of one of those incarnations. It takes place in Elizabethan England, with playwright Christopher Marlowe filling the Judas role. An anachronistic Joan of Arc plays the Mary role.
Believers may find these stories challenging, wrongheaded or just plain distasteful – but all I can do is assure you that I mean no disrespect to Jesus. Please remember that the stories are told from Judas’s point of view, and ultimately Jesus remains an enigma to him.
