Dog Boy Bobbing in a Boat, The Autobiography of God

In this wry, understated, illustrated novelette, RMark Johnson claims that God was originally a small Dog bobbing in a row boat on a Cosmic Lake, speaking in fluent Sunfish. Sometimes God is a He, sometimes a She. The Serpent isn't evil (He's Mexican, usually). The Forbidden Tree has poisonous almonds.

About RMark Johnson

RMark Johnson is a painter and poet (in English and Spanish). He was born on a Naval Base in East San Pablo Bay (part of San Francisco Bay) in the Cetaceous Period and has been fashioning books with chisels struck with stout tree limbs on soapstone since then. Next year, he hopes to upgrade to cuneiform if he can find a serviceable gas-fired kiln on eBay.
He lives now in Daytona Beach, FL, USA with his faithful companion, a trilobite (it's fossilized).


Review by: Pips Merlow on June 27, 2013 : (no rating)
The author takes on the feat of recounting the Genesis tale on the first person. Impressive. He also tackles the invention of words and evolution, all while sculpting a social commentary of the relationship between man and woman and the human species all together.

It can be at times a little demanding of the reader's attention as this God seems to have some identity issues (is he a woman, man...?) but I urge you to stick with it and enjoy the biting sarcasm and wit. Loved the snippy dialogue and attitude. And the sketches were an added stimulation and good accompaniment to the story.
