No Gods for Drowning collection

“In the beginning, men were prey.”

Dark fantasy meets noir and horror in the genre-blending world of No Gods for Drowning. Killers, detectives, sea monsters, and blood gods haunt the former archipelago of Aeg, which author Laird Barron calls “a superior offering,” and Vulture describes as “a mind-bending blend of noir, mythology, urban fantasy, apocalypse story, and murder mystery … Fans of the unclassifiable and the weird should not skip this one.”


No Gods for Drowning – the first book in the main series. Ten years after the gods abandon Aeg, Lilac Antonis looks to bring back her mother goddess via human sacrifice, pursued by friends and loved ones, only to entangle herself in an older, grander conspiracy that plunges the entire continent into a struggle of life and death.


“Wolfen Divine” – a short story appearing in Swords in the Shadows: An Anthology of Sword-and-Sorcery Horror. Half-wolf, half-god, Mero is a creature caught between worlds, made worse when Holy War has broken out between the gods while he has a blood promise to keep.

“She Tasted of Good Fortune” – a novelette appearing in We’re Here: An Anthology of LGBTQ+ Horror. An encounter with a lovely stranger sends a determined woman into a crime lord’s nest in search of someone who can tell a lover’s future.
