The Modern Deity's Guide to Surviving Humanity

Posted by Randi on Friday, August 28, 2020

 What they want:

THE MODERN DEITY’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY is to feature urban fantasy stories set in the modern-day world with some type of god or deity as the central focus of the story.  Stories featuring more interesting gods and deities, especially those from less-used cultures, will receive more attention than those that use standard gods/deities.  In other words, we don’t want to see 100 stories dealing with Zeus.  If we do, it’s likely that only one, at most, would be selected for the anthology.  Take note of which gods/deities the anchor authors intend to use (listed in the description of the Kickstarter at, since their stories are already guaranteed to be in the anthology. It’s unlikely we’ll select a second story using the same god/deity.  Be creative, choose something different, and have the god/deity established in the modern world in an unusual and unexpected way.  We are looking for a range of tones, from humorous all the way up to dark.
