In this "spiritual prequel" to the award-winning comedic fantasy Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure, three short stories tell what happens when beings of Greek mythology make themselves known in the modern world...
"The Atheist and the Ferryman": An atheist named Marcus learns the hard way that just because the old man living a hovel along a river that flows through a giant cavern in his basement is crazy, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's not telling the truth about being the ferryman to the land of the dead.
"Snipe Hunt": Janette's older brothers have ditched her in the woods. Again. But when Hermes takes a liking to her, vengeance is hers.
"Playing with Hubris": A young man a café finds himself stalked by a man who claims to be the god Apollo, who says he wants to help him, and who won't take no for an answer.
