"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Black City Saint is first-rate urban fantasy. Richard A. Knaak has mixed myth with real-world history to create a fast-paced, unpredictable story filled with intriguing characters, terrifying monsters, and sinister magic. Readers in search of the next Harry Dresden should join Nick Medea on what is sure to be the first of many adventures.”

—Richard Lee Byers, author of The Reaver, Blind God’s Bluff, and Dissolution

 
“I LOVE this book! Black City Saint is a delightfully creepy and at the same time jaunty urban fantasy, a wild ride through Chicago of the gangster era in which the pace never flags, the stakes get ever higher, and the reader gets to spend time with a truly engaging, intriguing bunch of characters that I for one want to spend more time with. So, sequels please? I’m prepared to beg!”

—Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms®

 
“There’s a lot to digest in this fast-paced, unpredictable world with a surprisingly well-developed cast of characters, including a lovable shapeshifter, an honest detective in a dishonest city, feirie royalty, and a kelpie made of Lake Michigan waters. Because of many resemblances to Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, urban fantasy fans will be hoping for more from Nick Medea.”
Booklist             


Black City Saint is jam-packed with awesome -- cursed Roman emperors, incorporeal dragons, paranormal detectives, a shapeshifter from the Feirie realm trapped inside a dog's body, and one very tormented unsaintly Christian saint -- all set in prohibition-era Chicago. Knaak's latest is fast-paced and funny, frightening and more than a little fiendish, a brilliant mash-up of Ghostbusters, The Da Vinci Code, and the ancient story of St. George and the Dragon.

—Brian Staveley author of The Emperor's Blades

 
“From the first page of Black City Saint to the last, you know you’re in the hands of a creative and expert storyteller. From setting the scenes to populating them with interesting and believable characters, Richard Knaak knows his stuff.”
 
—Mike Resnick, Hugo Award–winning author of The Prison in Antares
