Gods and Monsters: Unclean Spirits
9 May 2013
Life begins when your boss is killed.
Five years ago, Cason Cole walked away from his wife and son and became a chew toy to an actual god. Now, as the being he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free.
For the past thirty years, gods and monsters have walked among us, making us their pawns and playthings. But mortals aren’t the poor things they were in aeons past. It’s time for payback.
Includes Bonus Novella Drag Hunt by Pat Kelleher
Someone has stolen Coyote’s penis. His quest to retrieve it—his latest victim, Richard Greene, in tow—will drag him into a terrifying conspiracy. Saving the world is going to take everything in his bag of tricks—and he’s suffering from the ultimate performance anxiety.

“A grittier version of American Gods... Unclean Spirits is a lesson in how to write godpunk.”
“There is a powerful edge to Wendig’s writing, a unique voice that stands apart. This voice is dark, gritty, dirty almost, but elegant and rich and absorbing.”
“If you’re looking for a sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant, Wendig has established himself as the go-to man.”
