Synopsis:

When the god in the machine turns out to be a trickster hanging out in a clothes dryer...

A rash of exploding pigeons (and one self-detonating rat) signal the beginning of a strange quest for Toronto Police Detective Marty Breck and undergrad student Ellie O'Toole. Brought together by her 9-1-1 call about a haunting at a laundromat, they meet an entity calling itself Demonai.

Ellie and Marty quickly learn that their encounter is only the tip of the iceberg. Soon, they are launched on a search for answers, travelling across Ontario and figuratively back in time as they track down the trickster god's past victims and accomplices.

Yet it seems that more than curiosity has drawn Demonai to study humanity. The continuing existence of the entire third dimension may depend on the results of his experiments, and perhaps the fate of his own kind as well.

Reviews for Adventures in Godhood:

"ADVENTURES IN GODHOOD is funny, fascinating, and gripping. It zips along, with humour and fast action almost cloaking the really important questions about life and morality that get asked and, as is the way of humans, messily and clumsily answered. I loved it." - Ed Greenwood, award-winning author of Forgotten Realms
