Over a God’s Dead Body

“It’s an offbeat comedy in the vein of American Gods”

Cover for Over a God's Dead Body

In the same style of humor as Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, you’ll find the Norse gods and characters hilarious. If you are looking for a humorous adult version of the Magnus Chase series, you’ll be laughing at how Esmy and Jake deal with Loki. 

Esmy is frustrated by a lack of pockets on women’s pants. Living with her librarian brother Jake in a small Indiana town and working at a private college, Esmy feels like she is is stuck in a rut.

Meeting Loki ignites their lives like a powder-keg. This simple, seemingly innocuous encounter leads Esmy and Jake to discover the campus’s mysterious depths, involving sasquatches, vampires, and much more with the supernatural, magical and paranormal. 

In a crudely comedic high-stakes game of maneuvering, Loki’s freedom and Esmy’s survival come down to a fight over a God’s dead body.

Will Esmy become a reluctant hero?
Is Jake a lucky novice necromancer?
Will Loki actually become a half-decent mentor?

If you like insane action, hilarious dialogue, and gods behaving badly, then you’ll love the first installment in Joel Spriggs’s series of magical realism and whimsical mythology.
