Death of a God

On Eros and Thanatos, my blog at Forbidden Fiction, I wrote about the premise of "In the Death of Winter," and how writing about sex helps me find truth in other areas of life:
It made sense to me for religion to linger beyond the life of the god once I saw it as a sexual relationship. So often these days, I hear people speak about religion as a transaction — I'm a good girl, so God is supposed to take care of me. It's hard to imagine how one is supposed to sustain any kind of faith under those circumstances. Bargains between people and deities never seem fair.
