All The Gods Against Me
by Brandon Berntson
Clarence Manning is a working stiff and a borderline alcoholic whose only solace is gazing out his window at mankind with a drink in his hand. Love and beauty are dead and gone. Yet he smells rose petals on the night wind . . . sees them falling from the sky.
When three sentient beings disrupt his life, Clarence scoffs at their divine nature. The Blue God, Trujillo, matches Clarence’s apathy with the devil’s pride. Lenore, the god of yellow light, bestows the most beautiful, loving companion. And Donatello, The Red God, offers loyalty and friendship in a way he’s never known.
But Clarence wants no part of divine intervention, and he rebukes the gods with a vengeance.
