Fiction. A radical new myth about sex, faith, and those of us who will never die

A young boy wanders into the woods of Harlem and witnesses the abduction of his sister by a glowing creature. Forty years later, now working as a New York City homicide detective, Gus is assigned to a case in which he unexpectedly succumbs to a vision that Helen is still alive. To find her, he embarks on an unorthodox investigation that leads to an ancient civilization of gods and the people determined to bring them back.

In this colossal new novel from the author of The Metropolis Case ('breathes new life into the relationship between art and life' --New York Times), the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice collides with a new religion founded by three corporate office workers, creating something beautiful, illogical, and overwhelming. Part sex manifesto, part religious text, part Manhattan noir--with a dose of deadly serious, internet-inspired satire--#GODS is a sprawling inquest into the nature of faith and resistance in the modern world.

"#GODS is a mystery, an excavation of myths, an index of modern life, a gay coming-of-age story, an office satire, a lyrical fever dream, a conspiracy. One of the most ambitious novels in recent memory--and a wild, possibly transformative addition to the canon of gay literature-it contains multitudes, and seethes with brilliance." --Mark Doten, author of The Infernal

"Matthew Gallaway's #GODS is a novel so brilliant, so funny, so full of strange and marvelous things, I couldn't stop writing OMG WTF I
