Worshipping Small Gods is the follow-up to his World Fantasy Award finalist debut collection, The Ogre's Wife- containing fourteen stories, three of which are original to this volume, and all created with the same philosophy- follow where the story leads, and face whatever comes. These destinations range from comic zen parables as in the title story, "Worshiping Small Gods," to the darkest depths of the human heart as in "Voices in an Empty Room."

I make no bones about the fact that I was waiting for this book to arrive. And I was not disappointed. The stories are excellent, and I'm having a much harder time choosing favorites this time around than in Park's first collection, The Ogre's Wife. I do feel a bit partial to Fox Tails as I am a fan of the Yamada no Goji character. And I quite enjoyed Diva the longer piece in his ongoing Eli Mothersbaugh series. What really struck me about this collection is how each tale felt as if it took a story idea, and followed it from a different skew. This might be exemplified by A Time for Heroes though I don't think that is the only such tale in the book. As with the first collection, I can't recommend this one enough. ( )
