Book Smugglers Publishing Giveaways Gods and Monsters

Announcing Gods and Monsters: The Anthology (and a Giveaway)

As you may know, we published six original short stories this year online for free, and as standalone ebooks, each story following the theme of “Gods and Monsters.” Today, we are thrilled to announce that we have collected each of these short stories in an anthology, so you can get ’em all in one sweet ebook package!

From a thief and a stolen goddess, to twin sisters more different than their fathers ever could have imagined. From a priestess fighting gods incarnate, to a cursed artifact and journal concealing a great evil. From a young boy discovering his godly lineage and power, to two trans boys falling in love and summoning demons. Gods and Monsters collects six tales of great and terrible powers, including:

  • “Beauty, Glory, Thrift” by Alison Tam
  • “The Waters and Wild of Winter Street” by Jessi Cole Jackson
  • “A Question of Faith” by Tonya Liburd
  • “It Came Back” by Samantha Lienhard
  • “Duck Duck God” by José Iriarte
  • “Avi Cantor Has Six Months To Live” by Sacha Lamb

All stories originally edited and published by The Book Smugglers.

    “Avi Cantor Has Six Months To Live” was my favorite, though I did not read “It Came Back.”

    I really loved “A Question of Faith” by Tonya Liburd! Usually, I think I’m a Team Monsters girl… 🙂

    Quite generally, I think the classic “Frankenstein” is my favorite.

    i love “avi cantor” with all of my tiny heart. and as you can see by the name, presumably i’d have to be team monsters. although gods can be monstrous and monsters can be godly and it all depends on your perspective.

    Hi, this anthology seems really interesting and I’d love to read it, but none of the links above seem to be functioning. Could you please tell me where I can buy it? Thank you.
