Alt Text: Sylvan Creekmore at Wednesday Books has bought, at auction, a YA contemporary fantasy duology called Godly Heathens, plus one more book, by H.E. Edgmon (The Witch King), pitched as American Gods meets All Of Us Villains, in which a nonbinary Seminole teen from a southern town discovers they are the reincarnated god of magic and must hunt down and destroy the one weapon capable of permanently killing a god, before the lives—and loves—they’ve had through the centuries catch up to them. Publication of the first book is set for winter 2024; Lee O’Brien and Victoria Marini at Irene Goodman Literary Agency did the three-book deal for world rights.
