Olympian Pursuits

Olympian Pursuits

Can you choose your own god?

There’s a power vacuum on Olympus.

That’s the thing about a civil war.

Everyone’s weaker in the end than when the war began.

If the gods don’t stop attacking each other, none of them will have the strength to rule.

Anarchy can be worse than tyranny.

You can assassinate a tyrant. You can’t eliminate everyone under anarchy.

Why does everyone seem to think I’m the answer to the problem?

Sure, I can reap gods. I’m the only mortal the Olympians fear.

All the gods have their flaws. Some of them worse than others.

I have to choose between the lesser of multiple nincompoops.

How can I possibly decide which poor excuse for a god to support? If I make the wrong choice, departed human souls will pay the price.

About the Author
Theophilus Monroe

About Theophilus Monroe
Theophilus Monroe is a fantasy author with a knack for real-life characters whose supernatural experiences speak to the pangs of ordinary life. After earning his Ph.D. in Theology, he decided that academic treatises that no one will read (beyond other academics) was a dull way to spend his life. So, he began using his background in religious studies to create new worlds and forms of magic-informed by religious myths, ancient and modern-that would intrigue readers, inspire imaginations, and speak to real-world problems in fantastical ways.

When Theophilus isn't exploring one of his fantasy lands, he is probably playing with one of his three sons, or pumping iron in his home-gym, which is currently located in a 40-foot shipping container.

He makes his online home at www.theophilusmonroe.com. He loves answering reader questions--feel free to e-mail him at theophilus@theophilusmonroe.com if the mood strikes you!
