Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312868049, Hardcover)

Arthur Fenn is an ordinary young professor with an esoteric specialty, Comparative Mythology. He is in financial trouble and suddenly finds himself in possession of a magical spell that allows him access to the realm of the gods. He may be a professor, but he's got no common sense--so when he goes there, he makes the mistake of inviting a con-man god and his companions back to Earth. What develops is a fantastic mess full of rich opportunities for humor, satire, and surprise.

Arthur's mistake unbalances his own life, life on Earth, and the lives of the gods in their realm...and universal darkness threatens to cover all. Chaos spread on a greater and greater scale until all creation is threatened. It's a good thing that Arthur is able to find the courage and self-confidence to save the day, even if the universe has to die and be reborn

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:57:50 -0400)

A comedy on a Florida professor of mythology who visits the realm of the gods, seeking a solution to his financial problems. He brings back a crooked god and they embark on various scams to make money, including a new religion.
