fantasy stories go to Heaven

Steven Brust’s To Reign in Hell is a horror novel (or perhaps a dark fantasy) that deals with the revolt of the Angels, and (from memory) takes place partly in Hell, and partly in Heaven.

Are there any other good fantasy stories or novels set in Heaven?

It doesn’t necessary have to be the Heaven of Jewish or Christian belief. It can be the Heaven (or its equivalent) from other religious systems, such as the the ancient Greek pagan religion, or the Valhalla in Norse mythology, or the equivalent in any other religion or mythology.

I can't immediately call anything to mind, there are a few angel stories (some fallen some just here)

Angeology by Danielle Trussoni has a different take on angels

The Samaria angel series is a nice SF take on angels and heaven - its not til around the 3/4 the books that the SF really becomes obvious - they are by Sharon Shinn

*warning they have a romance theme in the Shinn books

Well there's the Norse myths themselves, which in Sturlusson's version are episodic, often explicitly starting with a disruption to the order of Asgard—Idunn's apples being stolen, Sif's hair being cut, the need to build a new wall, and others.

Aristoi by Walter Carlos Williams is an sf premised on godlike protagonists in a post-scarcity economy. Not bad.
