Smite Me, Oh Dark One is a very quick, hilarious read. When the God of Darkness doesn't want to be the one to destroy the world what happens? He becomes an Evil Overlord with a legion of goblin defenders of course! The story Steve has written was original and amusing and I truly hope to see more work of this nature from him. It's free! Give it a read and enjoy.

Mr. Thomas understand how the universe works, clearly. If he didn't, he couldn't show us how it'd work if the ridiculous things we believe in, creators, deities, gods, actually existed. And that's the brilliance of this work of art. The managers of creation are as incompetent as we've come to expect. They micromanage, they bicker, design in the universe is by consensus. It's probable stars only fuse because they couldn't decide among themselves whether or not pressure or gravity should be the dominant power in the universe. It's their world and you live in it, and just like your boss, love them or hate them, they can't be ignored.
