Welcome to Eden, Virginia, where gods and mythological beings walk the streets...

It's not so bad "dying by chemical fire" eight times a day for the slack-jawed tourists. Jack Whiskey's lived in Eden his whole life, and colonial reenactment is all he knows. Being the town "alchemist" is what he does...well, that and drink beer at the Olde Eden Brewery and Taphouse.

After sampling a few pints of Olde Eden's new Hoppy Heaven Ale, Jack discovers that a gang of American Indian Trickster gods are distributing the beer, brewed with water drawn from the Fountain of Youth, to every bar in Eden city limits. The crotchety old gods are never happy when people start attaining Eternal Life like it's every nobody's business (it always ends badly, usually for the people), and folks around town are slurping down Hoppy Heaven Ale like it's the nectar of the gods.

In the company of a Greek goddess of death, a renowned detective, and a duo of Mind-wielding Zen monks, he sets out on a journey spanning mythical worlds to prevent the end of the known world. And along the way must realize he has very much in common with the Tricksters that started the whole fiasco, or the Earth may drown in great beer.

About the Author:

Dan H. Kind writes off-the-wall fantasy, and sometimes horror. He enjoys family, beer, and fiction. He lives in Virginia with his beautiful wife, two amazing daughters, a beagle with allergy issues, and a crazy half-Siamese furball. When not making up wild stories or burying his face in a book, he kicks around the local airport, making up regular old stories.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. It s not so bad getting yourself blown up eight times a day for the slack-jawed tourists, at least to Jack Whiskey s thinking. He s lived in Eden, Virginia, his whole life, and colonial reenactment is all he knows. Being the town alchemist is what he does. Well, that and drink beer at the Olde Eden Taphouse. But his dreamy life is upended when he discovers that fictional characters and beings straight out of myth roam the streets of Eden. Oh, and there s a gang of American Indian Trickster gods running around distributing a beer brewed with the Water of Life to every bar and corner store within city limits. The Creator gods are never happy when people start attaining Eternal Life like it s every nobody s business (check your mythology: it always ends badly, usually for the people). Soon enough, the ever-vigilant Cosmic Dancer will take notice and two-step existence right on out of existence. But the residents of Eden aren t going down without a brawl. With the help of mind-wielding monks, mythological beings, and characters snatched straight from the classics, Jack must embark on a romp across mythical worlds-and descend to the ancient Greek Underworld-to prevent the stamping out of the universe. And he may have more in common with those Tricksters than he ever imagined possible. Seller Inventory # APC9781460983232

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 276 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Its not so bad getting yourself exploded eight times a day for the slack-jawed touristsor at least Jack Whiskeys always thought so. Hes lived in the town of Eden, Virginia, his whole life, and colonial reenactment is all he knows. Being the town alchemist is all he does. . . well, that and drink beer at the Olde Eden Taphouse. But Jacks routine life is upended when he discovers that a gang of American Indian Trickster gods have been distributing a beer brewed with the Water of Life to every bar and corner store within city limits (and, perhaps a bit late, that mythological beings and fictional characters walk the streets of his hometown, seen yet unseen). Everybody in the mythical world knows that the crotchety old gods are never happy when people start attaining Eternal Life like its every nobodys business (check your mythology: it always ends badly, usually for the people). And folks around Eden are slurping down Hoppy Heaven Ale like its the nectar of the godswhich, truth be told, it is. Soon ol Shiva will notice the discrepancy in the birthdeath ratio and dance existence right on out of existence to pave the way for a new, er, existence. Someone has shaken the mythical keg, and its foaming out (admittedly great) beer that has the potential to drown the universebut Jack Whiskey is determined to find the culprit and set things aright, mainly so his life can get back to its blessed old boring self. With the. . . help, if you could call it that, of an ancient Greek goddess of death, a master detective of the Victorian era, a duo of dumpster-diving Zen monks, and a pack of familiar young Missourian neer-do-wells, he sets out on a journey spanning mythical worlds to prevent the end of life as we know it. And along the way Jack must realize that he has more in common with the Tricksters that started the whole fiasco than he ever imagined possible, or the world may very well end. . . in beer.
