The Edge of Reason

By Melinda Snodgrass

Signed Trade Paperback

Since the dawn of consciousness, a secret war has been fought between the forces of magic and religious fanaticism and the cause of reason, understanding, and technology. On one side are the Old Ones, malign entities that feed on the suffering of mankind. On the other are the Lumina, an ancient order dedicated to the liberation of the human spirit.

Officer Richard Oort of the Albuquerque Police Department is caught in the middle of this primal battle when he rescues a mysterious teenage girl from a trio of inhuman hunters. Recruited by the Lumina to serve as their latest paladin, Richard fights beside a handful of unlikely allies, including an adolescent sorceress, an enigmatic philanthropist, a sexy coroner, and a homeless god with multiple personalities.

But the Old Ones and their mortal pawns are determined to destroy Richard-or else convert him to their cause. And they have all powers of magic and organized religion at their disposal. As the gates between the universes shred apart, it may be up to Richard to save humanity from the endless horror of a new Dark Age.

Melinda M. Snodgrass’s The Edge of Reason is a provocative thriller about the eternal battle between science and superstition.

 

“It’s the eve of Armageddon and the gates of hell are about to yawn open. Jesus Christ is a homeless schizophrenic living in a cardboard box, Lucifer commands the forces of light, and humanity’s best hope is a tormented young beat cop from Albuquerque, New Mexico. If H.P. Lovecraft and H. L. Mencken had ever collaborated, they might have come up with something like The Edge of Reason. This one will delight thinkers–and outrage true believers–of all stripes.” ―George R. R. Martin

    Odyssey, held each summer in the ghastly haunted mountains of New Hampshire, is an intensive six-week workshop for aspiring writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.   I taught there once, years back, and witnessed first hand what an amazing experience it was… and in more recent years, I have sponsored an annual scholarship for a

    This is really too cool. A new genus of pteradon has been discovered, and named after the dragons of House Targaryen. https://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/soaring-dragonlike-dinosaur-named-for-game-of-thrones-house-targaryen/ I am delighted, needless to say.   Especially by the kind words of the discoverer, paleontologist Rodrigo Pegas, who is solidly on my side about dragons having two legs, not four, and pfui on
