Over the centuries almost all civilizations have worshipped at the shrine of one god or another. To their believers, these gods were truly superhuman in the sense that they far exceeded normal human beings in every way.
This is a virtual biographical dictionary of all the gods. Some of the defintions are pretty amusing, but the gods don't mind laughter at all. In fact, the evidence is strong that they invented it.

I have read many books on myths and legends and although this book does not go into great detail about a lot of the gods, it does give a brief telling about gods from Greek, Roman, Japan, Celtic, Russian, and many many more cultures. It is very good for someone who want's a little information about a lot of gods and demi gods.
