Alex Raizman

Alex Raizman has been a fantasy, science fiction, and horror fan since elementary school. He calls Stein, Tolkien, and Bradbury his “gateway drugs”. A voracious reader, he always planned to write a book “someday”.

Being diagnosed with cancer in 2015 inspired him to stop thinking about “someday” and start doing things now. So with the same attitude that once prompted him to tackle a speech impediment by joining his school’s competitive debate team, he decided to get serious about writing.

Three years later, Alex is cancer free and thrilled to have published Weird Theology, the first book in his Small Worlds series. Book two, Strange Cosmology, will be published in 2019.

Alex lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with Loki, the world’s coolest cat.

The factory grows - but so do Julian’s enemies.

After defeating Lilwen, Julian has worked tirelessly to expand the Factory and is loving the results. Folas, the Gold god of creation and desire, has set his eyes on everything Julian has built. The god sees an opportunity to bring his plans to fruition and has assembled a full raid party: summoners, necromancers, beastmasters, and others that can call defenders to their aid.

The other gods accuse Julian of being a Dark Lord, and he has to bring the full might of the Factory against their so called heroes. But with the array of minions at the heroes disposal, Julian can’t rely on overwhelming them with numbers. He’s going to have to get creative to win this fight.

Fortunately, Julian has a plan. He can’t outpace the heroes this time. But motors might do the trick.
