Preposterous Prologue

IT BEGINS! Ladies and Gentlemen: the Prologue to The Gods We Made, book two of “Preposterous History.” Two years after the events of The Bright Path, Gog the Hammer finds himself facing down a new enemy–and big guns suddenly seem not quite so big. Jonathan Miller arrives in Devi Valley with Simon and Devi, determined to find something in Vault Three–but comes away empty handed. Cyrus and Veridia have a baby together, but not much else; Merrily is irritatingly competent; and Rufus Snugg decides to fight absurdity with absurdity.

IN WHICH Rufus Snugg brings guns to a sword fight. Boom.

Your host largely restrains his instinct to musical bombast, but this episode does feature God’s Breath from Paradise Lost as the roll-out, with Danielle Erin Rhodes, Martin Sola, Michael Marcotte, and Kevin T. Collins, and MaryAnn Ivan on Keys.

Episode 46: An Irresistible Request

The Bright Path pairs well with either a dry Malbec or a fo’ty.

In Finery Valley, Basil sets new plans in motion–now assisting the White Knights. Rufus expresses his earnest desire for the biggest boomstick that money can buy, and also a pony. Two fresh armies arrive in the valley, and Colonel Ratwurst finds not all to his liking. Daven spills new secrets to Rufus, and Rufus backs Devi into a corner with an irresistible request.

Episode 39: The First, Distant Rumble of Peace

The Bright Path is good for the soul, if you’ve got one handy. If not, it’ll do as a really attractive paperweight.

Rufus Snugg and his friends make a new toy, but toys aren’t a solution to Rufus’s problems. Devi gets the latest news from home, and Daven gets a black eye for his trouble. Basil’s machinations bear fruit, as a certain ring-bearer plunges to his death in the fiery abyss.

Episode 22: The Spy in the Kettle

Won’t bug me a bit if you want to read it in writing.

Rufus Snugg confronts a stubborn mystery and a stubborn archaeologist.  Devi declines to send beer.  The snarfs discover that the problems of history are also the problems of today.  Rufus makes a strategic gamble, of which Gog the Hammer disapproves.  Basil causes Gunnar to rip his pants.
