Go To

A novel by Christopher Moore, published in 1994.

Samson Hunts Alone, aka Sam Hunter, runs away from home as a teenager when he's tied to the death of a local police officer.

Twenty years later, he's a yuppie insurance salesman living peacefully in Los Angeles. His life is turned upside down when he unwittingly gets involved with the Trickster God Coyote.

This book provides examples of:

  • No Such Thing as Wizard Jesus: Coyote has met Jesus once and is amused that Jesus makes such a big deal about coming back from the dead one time. It Makes Sense in Context, as Coyote's brother is Anubis, a god who has brought the dead back to life on multiple occasions.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Coyote, Anubis and their 'children' (Sam and Minty Fresh, respectively) all have golden eyes to denote their supernaturality.
