Divine Misfortune

By A. Lee Martinez (Electronic Book, 2010)
Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion - again - it's time to take matters into their own hands. And look online.

Choosing a god isn't as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they find Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune.

Oh - and to crash on their couch for a few days.

DIVINE MISFORTUNE is a story of gods and mortals - in worship, in love, and at parties.

A. Lee Martinez was born in El Paso, Texas. At the age of eighteen, for no apparent reason, he started writing novels. Thirteen short years (and a little over a dozen manuscripts) later, his first novel, Gil's All Fright Diner, was published. His hobbies include juggling, games of all sorts, and astral projecting. Also, he likes to sing along with the radio when he's in the car by himself. For more information on the author, check out www.aleemartinez.com
  • "Abundant, zany humor..." --- Publishers Weekly on Monster

    "A. Lee Martinez is the American Terry Pratchett.  While Martinez deals in more contemporary settings, he is every bit as witty and funny as Pratchett, and one hopes his career is just as long and successful." --- graspingforthewind.com on Divine Misfortune

    "Divine Misfortune is a light and wonderful read from start to finish." --- sfsignal.com

    "Divine Misfortune reads like a mash-up of Neil Gaiman, Monty Python, and a sugar-bombed nine-year old." --- Locus
