Book Description

19 July 2012
The gods have returned. All of them! The change promised by the ending of the Mayan Calendar in 2012 manifested itself in an unexpected manner. Every pantheon of gods and goddesses, from every belief the world over, has returned ... changing the world forever. As the pantheons settle into their ancestral lands, they vie for worshippers, gaining or losing power along the way. They find the world of man a bewildering, crazy quilt, and each wishes to remake their lands in their own image. Come and meet some of the inhabitants of this strangely familiar world in eleven new tales that explore what it means to worship in this new reality. A Knight Templar hunting mysteries. A rookie pitcher with a unique belief system. A wounded solider returned to battle by a goddess. A reporter who isn’t sure what to believe. A homicide detective on the Manhattan beat. A man out to kill the gods. A single father trying to survive in a world without Santa Claus. And many more! Chronicling this new tomorrow are Dave Galanter, Allyn Gibson, Phil Giunta, Robert Greenberger, Paul Kupperberg, William Leisner, Scott Pearson, Aaron Rosenberg, Lawrence M. Schoen, Dayton Ward, and Steven H. Wilson. Join them and discover a world where everything old is new again—even the gods themselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Of Gods and Monsters 27 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In 2012, the old gods returned. All of them. The Olympians, the Celtic, the Norse, The Native American and Mexican... this anthology of stories is set against the background of a world redefined by the return of the ancient powers, and their demand to be worshipped. The book reminds me most of the Wild Cards anthologies, but without a framing story. Each tale introduces different characters and scenarios against the backdrop, and adds new layers to an altered world. I enjoyed the smaller stories the most, little moments in little lives redefined by the return of the gods, while bigger tales of extraordinary events left me a little disinterested, but overall the standard of the stories is consistently high. My only complaint is that several of the most interesting seem to be the start of something that doesn't conclude here - character introductions and origins that set up possibilities to be explored later, but which are never returned to. It could be that a further volume will revisit them, but it's annoying that some of these potentially intriguing tales offer little by way of an interim conclusion, and so leave the anthology on its own feeling incomplete.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 1 Sep 2012
By G. Andersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
From the moment I read the description this book had my attention. A collaboration piece by several wonderful authors, this book provides a little something for everyone. The premise of the old gods re-emerging on a modern world naturally opens the door for any number of adventures.

Each author provides a short story connected by this singular theme, therefore each story differs in style and personality giving you many different views of this odd new world where gods are fighting for territory and favor while the human race attempts to continue life as normal.

It isn't a long read (I finished it on a 6 hour flight) but something well worth your time. I found it delightful and endlessly entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have always loved a story that brings history to the future 8 Jun 2013
By TFX - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This collaborative work is wonderful, the story may not be for everyone one, but I absolutely loved it. If you have any interest in the faiths and beliefs of the old world, and think about what it would be like if they were still around, then this is a book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 9 Sep 2012
By Sandra L. Zier-Teitler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having had the privilege to proof one of the stories in this anthology, I anxiously awaited its availability. I read it in a cross-country flight to California and loved every story in it. The concept I think is very imaginative and lends itself to even more stories to come (hopefully) from these, and perhaps other, authors. Anyone interested in mythology, science fiction, simple "what if" stories (what IF the "Gods" did return to earth)... you won't be bored with this book. Great read guys... love it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not just Gods Walking Among Us 24 Aug 2013
By Stu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Found out about Crazy 8 Publishers from a friend and am now on their mailing list. This was the first book I purchased from them. At the time I bought it based on my friend's recommendation, but now have fallen in love with this series. To date there are three of them. What appeals to me about the collection of stories is how they treat the subject matter. Mythological gods reappear during the opening of the London Olympic Games and announce they expect us to begin worshipping them again. I expected to find tired tripe about Greco-Roman gods casting thunderbolts at people. It is so much more than that. The gods covered in the books range from Norse, Native American, Greco-Roman to Asian animistic spirits. The authors have kept respectful to the beliefs and have told tales that really ask and answer the question "What would society do if this truly happened?" They are stories of mythic gods, but also tales of flesh and blood humans trying to cope with the upheaval of their return. This is not just pulp, it is a collection of substance. Highly recommend.
