Here’s the premise:
The gods and goddesses of scripture return to Earth during an event known as the Parousia, but not just the gods of any one religion; gods of every religion. More than that, though, the Parousia doesn’t limit itself just to religions, but to things people do religiously. There’s a god of football, of soccer, and of bowling. There’s a god of money, and, much to everyone’s surprise, a god of Atheism. Even Jesus walks the Earth.
Phineas Sealby is a deity beat reporter for the Atlanta Record, keeping tabs on the doings of all these ten thousand (or so) gods, who settle into a niche more or less like celebrities.
There’s just one problem: a god is missing. Some call him Lucifer, some call him the Lord of Lies, but he has never surfaced. Events in Phineas’s life send him on a quest through Hell itself to find and obtain an interview from the missing god Satan.
Will Phineas succeed? Will he be chucked into a lake of fire like so much metal slag? We’re going to find out in Ten Thousand Gods.
Sounds great, right? Right!
