“You know we build the ships around the captured gods?"

In a space-faring society powered not by mechanical engines but by faith and one god’s triumph over his fellow deities, Captain Tephe is unquestioned in his devotion. But the captured gods are growing restless as if a change is coming and Tephe is sent on a secret machine to strengthen his God. This is a disturbing, fascinating, and very well-written dark fantasy novella with a Lovecraftian horror feel. Fans of H. P. Lovecraft, Harlan Ellison, and of course, Scalzi lauded for his series beginning with the Hugo-winning Old Man’s War should check this out.
