For the unreligious, what goes in place of God? I attempted to answer this question in an essay that discusses Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, God, gods, astrology, art, love, death, the natural world, and more! Enjoy! Hopefully.
For those of you who have received and read Cover Story, give it a gander/rating on Goodreads, where it now exists! This is also a place where you can find out what exactly the book is about, which may matter to some people.
