Deity (The Almighty's Adventures on Earth and Beyond)
by Vic Mudd
Here’s the first thing you should know about God: he doesn’t like to be called “God.” And he isn’t crazy about churches, crucifixes or having his own pronoun capitalized. He also can’t decide if the Bible is laughable or infuriating; he only knows that he had nothing to do with it. He thinks of himself as an average Joe, enjoys a good Elvis tune, communing with nature, and sit-down dinners with the suburban Ohio family he has imposed himself upon, unbeknownst to them.
But once he decides to play all-American boy to help him decide if the human race is worth saving, he finds himself at a crossroads and discovers that his “typical” family is far from typical and the world at large is crazier than even He ever imagined.
"In Deity, God creates the Earth because he's bored. It's lucky for us that he didn't have a copy of this entertaining novel on hand, or else we probably wouldn't be here today. Thank you Vic Mudd for waiting this long to write it."
—Bradley Sands, author of It Came from Below the Belt and editor of Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens
“I can't say for sure if Deity was 'divinely inspired' or not, but I sure hope so! One can only hope God is as funny and down to Earth as he is portrayed here. Vic has composed a fast moving farce, putting God in a reality TV setting. Highly enjoyable!”
—Ray Fracalossy, author of Tales from the Vinegar Wasteland
