ReDeus is a shared universe, and the brainchild of Bob Greenberger, Aaron Rosenberg and Paul Kupperberg. In these stories, the gods return in 2012. Yes, all of them! In the first volume, Divine Tales, eleven authors told tales of the different pantheons and how their returns changed the world, and the lives of individual people.
My story tells of Axel, a 20-year-old musician who was poised to become the next YouTube sensation until the gods turned off the Internet all over the world. Axel comes to New York City, still the center of culture, hoping to reclaim the celebrity that was almost in his grasp. There he meets Bragi, Norse god of poetry, who demands his allegiance. What follows is an odyssey through the melting pot of pantheons, as Axel encounters more gods than he ever wanted to, and all of them want something from him.
