Small Worlds by Alex Raizman

The end of the world is non-negotiable. How it happens is still up in the air. 

Ryan Smith was a boring guy. The only remotely interesting thing about him was the man in a suit that no one else could see. Always watching, always taking notes. Why? Because it’s Ryan’s job to supervise the end of the world. The newly appointed guardian of a nanoverse, an object that gives him the power of a god, it’s up to Ryan to try and save humanity, even though he can’t save the world. Shockingly, not everyone is on board with the end of the world, especially Enki, a villain so terrible he . . . wants to save the world.

At least things have stopped being boring.

Now Ryan finds himself in a fast paced adventure, caught in the power struggle between gods as he is forced to battle for his life against forces he can barely comprehend. A high octane battle between good and evil, where the heroes’ best hope is a kinder, gentler Armageddon.

Note: Small Worlds contains pervasive harsh language; also, some graphic violence.

Just An Average Joe God

By Kraken Attacken, member

Jun 5, 2018: I love interesting stories that occur in modern fantasy settings, especially when the modernity is infused in such a way that it doesn’t produce dissonance with the setting and period. If the fantasy can fit right in, then I find that very appealing. Furthermore, if the fantasy manages to have a solid system that lends itself towards deep explorations behind the purpose for why the fantasy exists, then that elevates my enjoyment to peak levels.

Apr 9, 2018: Interesting premise, but the execution was poor. From what I understand the story began from r/writingprompts and while the author took the idea in an interesting direction he didn’t give it the detail to be interesting. The abilities are given more explanation than description, and action scenes follow a similar path. There’s more interest in telling the reader about all of these cool things instead of showing them. It doesn’t help that the main characters voice is grating. Which brings up my main issue with the story. The characters are [more . . .]
