"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

"Jason Parent has penned a thought-provoking, gripping sci-fi thriller. This isn't your grandma's alien invasion. My own world stopped the moment I stepped into People of the Sun. Lovers of science fiction, horror and even super heroes will revel in this roller-coaster of a tale. A true must-read!" - Hunter Shea, author of We Are Always Watching and The Jersey Devil 
 
"With his own indelible blend of tension and dark humor, Jason Parent's latest page-turner reminds me of what you'd get if you crossed Isaac Asimov with Kurt Vonnegut. In addition to being fast-paced and wildly entertaining, Parent's novel also offers the occasional flash of insight into the human (and not-so-human) condition, and displays Parent's talent for turning a given genre on its head." - Michael Meyerhofer, author of The Dragonkin Trilogy
 
"I was captivated from the start to the finish. I am particularly intrigued by the moral questions raised in the story. I'm still thinking about the characters. They have stayed with me beyond the final pages of the novel." - Catherine DePasquale, author of The Future Spring
 
"If you like sci-fi, you need to read this. If you like horror, you need to read this. If you like dark fiction, you need to read this. If you like a book that is superbly written in every single way, you need to read this." - Confessions of a Reviewer
 
"I really loved this story. It was hopeful and heartbreaking at the same time... I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good tale of betrayal and death, a fresh and original alien invasion story with wonderfully written characters!" - Elysian Fields Book Reviews
 
"This was a refreshing SF adventure with plenty of heart and imagination." - The Irresponsible Reader
 
"Even though this was mainly a science-fiction novel, it had elements of horror. It was also well written. A good story entertains, has complex characters and it makes you think. People of the Sun has all that and as such I recommend it!" - Char's Horror Corner
 
"Readers will come away from People of the Sun with an intensified appreciation for 'the other,' for scientific open-mindedness, and for the wonders of the universe. This novel is guaranteed to provoke thoughtfulness and contemplation." - The Haunted Reading Room
 
"People of the Sun isn't just a science fiction novel. It's not just a horror book. It's also filled with plenty of action, adventure, and thought-provoking situations. It's a very well-written novel, deserving of praise. In my opinion, I think just about anyone would enjoy this book." - Angela Kay, author of The Murder of Manny Grimes 
 
"The characters and plot are developed to perfection, the story weaves between points of view without losing cohesion, and the action is peppered throughout at a pace that kept me glued to my seat, eager to know how it all turns out, but never wanting it to end. I can't recommend this enough. There's something for everyone in this terrific novel." - Adam Light, author of Taken
 
"People of the Sun has everything I love to find in a book. It's a mix of horror, sci-fi, thriller, and dark fantasy, and it ticked all the boxes for me" - Scarlet's Web
 
"The poignant emotions, action, and unrelenting tension make this an all-around great novel, spanning multiple genres. There is something that most everyone will be able to relate to here." - Horror After Dark

About the Author

In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso. In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge… as a civil litigator. When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it's harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he's back in the legal field… sorta. But that's another story. When he's not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists in a knot or takes somebody's head off - he misses the appeal). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes. Please visit the author on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/AuthorJasonParent?ref=hl, on Twitter at https://twitter.com/AuthorJasParent, or at his website, http://authorjasonparent.com/, for information regarding upcoming events or releases, or if you have any questions or comments for him.
