Mike Resnick's "Heads and Tails in Paradise" (short story, non-genre, humor, free): When Lucifer Jones was god!

As corrected by author, this is really the first story in the new Lucifer Jones series set in the Pacific rather than "Harboring Pearls". It's a variation of "The Lost Continent of Moo", but still a good read.

Lucifer Jones lands in Easter Island, & promptly sets him up as "Makemake", the local god, to counter the threats of the already established (& apparently-Western) local High Priest!
