Though I have been quiet on the matter, rest assured that Petty Gods is slowly winding its way toward release. I spent a lot of time in June getting the entries ready, as well as making sure I had all the art needed. There are still some holes to plug, as well as some further tweaking on the entries, not to mention the creation of some supplementary material I think would make good additions to the overall book. You'll be able to see a preview of the book in issue #6 of the fanzine Oubliette, which comes out in a few weeks.
One of the reasons I've been moving slowly on Petty Gods, aside from being distracted by the Dwimmermount Codex and the revision of Thousand Suns, is that I was awaiting word on a possible inclusion from a very special contributor. Happily, I am now able to tell you that, in addition to a foreword by Paul Jaquays, Petty Gods will include the entirety of Professor M.A.R. Barker's 1980 essay, "How to Create a Religion in Your Spare Time for Fun and Profit." It's a terrific article, filled with lots of great ideas and not a few insights. It's long been one of my favorite of Professor Barker's writings and I'm honored that he's granted me permission to include it in Petty Gods. Many thanks to Victor Raymond for making this happen.
