Grumpy Old Gods Vol. 3
The Grumpy Old Gods are back in a delightfully spooky edition. Sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, almost always grumpy, cranky, or cantankerous, these modern renditions of aging gods and goddesses will enliven the season and leave you wanting more.
Maize by Marshall J. Moore: Family history and mythology both have a way of repeating themselves; and if you are P.I. Althea Stagg, they are basically the same thing anyway.
A Grave Mistake by Elizabeth Shaffer: Loki isn’t a good guy, but sometimes, even he gets the chance to be a hero. (So what if he was in the middle of pulling a prank when the chance came along?)
Queen of Nightmares by Ronel Janse van Vuuren: When Queen Mab tries to take a well-deserved break, all hell breaks loose…literally.
A Deal’s a Deal by Vanessa Finaughty: When the younger gods decide to throw a Halloween bash, the lord of Samhain is less than pleased. As usual, It’s up to Isis to fix the resulting mess.
Riding the Storm by Lyssa Medana: Even a retired God needs to get out occasionally; Taranis should have chosen a different night.
The Boy Who Became a God by Aletha Wade: Sometimes it takes a lot to become what you will be, and death isn’t always an ending.
Fingertips of Blood and Oil by K. A. Masters: On an epic trip across the sea, a Captain meets a Goddess, and finds out that they have more in common than one would expect.
Oracle by Mark Bruce: Beware what you bring with you when you enter the Oracle.
St. Estavan of the Children by E. E. King: He died. But after he died, he found a purpose.
Night of the Living Diva by Greg Nagler: Lilly and Mable face off with the Goddess Hecate. It’s not going to be pretty.
Free ARC’s to read for a limited time!
Rose by Vanessa Wells: Something is killing wealthy businessmen, something that can rip out a heart and leave no DNA evidence – when the police can’t find the killer, it’s time to call a witch.
The anthologies are nearly-always amusing, somewhat insightful, and completely irreverent as we imagine the gods of yore in retirement. Tales of deities that are retired, reborn, waning or AWOL from their assigned posts as they hilariously navigate life, death, and everything in between.
