The Babel Tower Notice Board is in its final month of publication. A shame – I’d only discovered it recently. I have an extract from a longer work published there as of yesterday. Lowly Gods is a rejigged update of material I wrote while on secondment in Hong Kong some years ago. It’s a combination of a kind of monsterpedia and a diary; for each day, an individual psychopomp/grim reaper is briefly described before some other observations are recorded. Each creature is the cause of minor ill effects in any human it brushes up against. Their visual appearances are loosely based on various buildings and non-human objects I used to walk past while wandering to and from work, or trying to find things to do.
