Arlene’s new novel, The Accidental God. just released in October, 2014, is a humorous science fiction novel that will keep you chuckling until the very end.
Demonai, a prank-loving visitor from a higher dimension, has been amusing himself by conducting experiments on the ‘threedees’ living inside the bubble of space that he stole from his bullying fellow being, Olla’set.
Begun in fun, Demonai’s latest experiment has turned deathly serious. Olla’set is threatening to destroy the bubble and all the life inside it unless Demonai can prove to him that the ‘threedees’ are sentient. In fact, the stakes are much higher than Olla’set realizes. Can three perplexed human beings think their way through Demonai’s challenge and save not only their own universe but the trickster god’s as well?
