What would you say if someone told you they had come face to face with God? That God, in physical form had told them the mysteries of the universe, the details of his divine plan. Would you want to know?
At The Ritzy, just off Oldham Street, there is such a man. The Ritzy itself is the kind of place that the wise avoid and the desperate always seem to find. A dive that calls itself a casino and which is really nothing more than a smoky, converted pool hall. Not the place one would expect to find God.
Yet, with its dark corners and shadowy figures, The Ritzy might well be just the place to hear God’s plan, because far from being sweetness and light, it is a very dark thing indeed. Plumbing the same depths of existential horror frequented by Lovecraft, Fair and Foul is a story that will haunt you long after you have finished reading.
