Gods and Psychopaths
by Louis Park
Black Scottish terriers aren’t particularly well-known for devouring civilisations, but Little Dog is.
Like most omnipotent beings, the elder god finds boredom a constant problem, but the deity has just the right plaything to solve this, a psychopathic vagabond called Cain.
Cain never wanted to make a deal with the sadistic and petulant deity. All he ever wanted was to gorge on Manchester’s finest foods, fight the police and save the bumblebee through murderous rampages. Instead, he has to give bloodthirsty performance after bloodthirsty performance to keep the adorable doom-bringer entertained. If he fails, he might just find that he — and the rest of the world — become the god’s snacks.
