"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

A worthy addition to the sci-fi genre and certainly one for readers who enjoy following serial compilations. --John Reinhard Dizon, Author In the vein of old science fiction literature this story could end up as another classic. It's original, with all the components, technology, other world and races, and a contact with Earth. It also has tension and conflict, though mostly emotional and interpersonal, not ray guns. --Amazon Reviewer Written in a technically proficient yet engaging style this book is sure to captivate science fiction lovers of all ages! --Donna McGarry, Author the "Zodiacts" series The descriptions of Earthlings and our society sent me into fits of laughter. A couple new characters drop in on this volume, a bnolar and Win, a friend of Dirck's, to make this story an ever increasingly interesting read. Fox once again does an exceptional job building character and making her created universe a reality. --Elle Klass, Author of "Eilida's Tragedy" and the "Baby Girl" series

From the Author

When I finished "Beyond the Hidden Sky" it was apparent that the story wasn't over yet. I didn't initially plan it that way, but that's what happens when your characters come alive, have a past that's catching up with them, and as they say, "the plot thickens."

This book presented a significant challenge to write as I designed Cyraria. It's been said that fantasy stories take place in "worlds" and science fiction takes place on "planets". I wanted it to be different, not just another planet in a binary system that orbits both stars at once. Thus, I set it up so the planet orbited the two stars separately, in a figure-8 pattern, and as if that wasn't enough of a challenge, I turned its axis of rotation on its side, similar to Uranus in our solar system. This set the stage for some extreme weather conditions that the Brightstars have to deal with on top of all their other troubles, like being targeted by devious high government officials.

My physics training certainly was essential to figuring the seasons out and various other details, such as the distance the planet would be from the stars, etc. I have an entire notebook with the calculations, which was actually some of the most fun I had writing this installment of the story.
