Philip Memmer's Pantheon is a collection of dramatic monologues written from the perspectives of imaginary gods. But these are not the usual mythological suspects: the voices here include such unlikely deities as the God of Error, the God of Skunks, the God of Shrugs, and the God of Lullabies. Whether their concerns are profound or ridiculous, and whether they speak with love or disdain, they share one thing in common: the faithful, mortal human to whom they speak.
