When I read the cover quote, "a novel of the war between science and superstition" I expected something set a while back, perhaps having something to do with Galileo and Kepler and other scientists of that time -- or maybe something later, with the Inquisition. For some reason, I did not expect it to be an urban fantasy -- but Melinda Snodgrass' The Edge of Reason shows that that fight is still going on, and is, if anything, even more relevant in the 21st century. This is a work of fantasy, though, so you can expect certain twists...
The forces of light just happen to be headed up by Lucifer -- or, as he prefers to be known, Prometheus or Kenntis (German for knowledge), as it saves any confusion with the Satan image. Over the eons, he has fostered science and reason, and been the man behind Lumina Enterprises, a "company that is apparently worth more than Microsoft". On the opposite side, are the Old Ones, beings who forced their way into the fabric of our lives when we first walked upright and were little more than howling monkeys; they fed on our emotions, and we worshipped them: they created all the religions. Of all our emotions, the harsher ones, fear, anger, and hatred, are easier to evoke and thus, easier for the Old Ones to feed upon.Read more ›
