ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION begins with a death threat received by Gordon Coburn, philandering General Manager of a lavish Hawaii resort, then jumps to Kip Stallybrass, an anthropologist researching headhunters in the jungles of Borneo, Mislov Rapolovitch, a demonic, scandal-mongering paparazzo in New York, and on to gorgeous, party-loving Lady Gloria Ryder, a young English aristocrat in London. Desperate and hilarious adventures draw these three from their far-flung corners of the earth to gather at Coburn's Waikiki Beach hotel, where their arrival coincides with an international conference on shamanism and a catastrophic hurricane. The conference is hosting shamans, witch doctors, spirit healers, and evangelists from the Amazon to the Himalayas, so there are hundreds of advocates of innumerable deities to command attention. As imminent death looms for all, so does the question of who or what caused these characters' intersections? Who made those death threats at the beginning? Who is responsible for threatening everyone with death at the end? Is there an Omniscient Narrator? Or not? ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION was a National Semi-Finalist in the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and is an opportunity to enjoy some really serious laughs.
