EP004: In His Footsteps

By Paul E. Martens.
Read by Stephen Eley.

The dinner was not what you could call an unqualified success. The best that could be said for it was that we survived. And Uncle Dennis couldn’t even say that much.

That was my fault, too, I guess. I pissed God off, and all of your major religions will tell you that that’s something you want to try and avoid. But I still think of Him as ‘Dad,” and when was the last time you just meekly did what your father told you to do? Okay, sure, your father isn’t God, but mine wasn’t always God, either.

Rated PG. Contains sexual innuendo and lighthearted heresy.

Listen to this week’s Escape Pod!

Well done!  Paul E. Martens is getting up there with Tim Pratt among my favorites.  I've really enjoyed all of his Escape Pod stories!

I'm a sucker for a story that paints God in a non-typical manner, and the inheritance of Godliness from father to son is a cool idea.  Great idea, great execution, great narration.  This story had me laughing out loud, very very funny stuff.  :)
