The small god in Ch. 44 : the visitor
The Visitor (2002)
Contexto: Occasionally, I will do a conspicuous miracle to save one dying child while a thousand children starve elsewhere. This will convince sensible people I am perverse, and they will curse my name. Be sure to recruit those who do, they'll be invaluable.
