"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I decided that Israel Finn was a superior writer when I hit the second paragraph of the first story. Right then, he convinced me he knew how to observe and describe and manipulate mood and tone. And by the time I finished that first story, Finn had delivered on the story’s promising opening. Now, I’m not a big short story reader. I prefer novels. But Finn’s stories move along at a brisk pace that never bored me. He paints brief pictures of various horrors—monsters, atrocities, and tragedies—that disturb and provoke but never overstay their welcome. There’s some humor in these tales, as well.
Several of these stories featured a main character as some sort of victim, but one in particular featured a monstrous anti-hero who looked all the more monstrous because I could identify with him.
Technically, this book is superior to a lot of independent authors’ work. I didn’t spot any typos. The prose was efficient and effective. I don’t know if he had the book professionally edited, but it read as if he did.
Overall, I highly recommend this book to fans of short stories and fans of horror. You don’t have to be a horror fan to enjoy these tales, I don’t believe. Finn never goes for the cheap gross-out, although there are a few disturbing descriptions in the story. I feel like this short story collection would sit well next to Joe Hills 20th Century Ghosts, although Finn writes shorter, punchier stories than Hill does.
I personally will be keeping an eye out for more of Mr. Finn’s work.
