Artist Lee Moyer (The Doom That Came to Atlantic City, Starstruck) and author Seanan McGuire (Middlegame, Every Heart a Doorway) have joined forces to bring you icons and stories of the small deities who manage our modern world in their new series Small Gods to Enlighten the Homebound.
Gods yearn to be believed in, that they might become powerful and influential. Belief is everything to them, and without it, they may stay small forever. From the God of Social Distancing to the God of Finding a Parking Space, some Gods find their own niches and fill the Belief Economy for many years undisturbed – Others want it all.
The series will continue each week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and can be accessed from these internet platforms —

“The [early] Roman gods were kind of crap, you know – Geoff, the god of biscuits, and Simon, the god of hairdos….” — Eddie Izzard “Dress to Kill”
“All the sweetness of religion is conveyed to the world by the hands of storytellers and image-makers. Without their fictions the truths of religion would for the multitude be neither intelligible nor even apprehensible.” — George Bernard Shaw
