"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

From the Author

This story is probablylarger than any of us will ever know, so finding a 'correct' place to start is impossible.  But this is my part of that story...and this is where that part began.
.
.
.
This was the first full-length novel I ever set down to write.  I had written a novella, titled Eyes of Ice, Heart of Fire for my brother's Spineward Sectors series describing one of the lead character's back-story.  I had served as an editor for my brother's books at that point - which I had absolutely no experience doing, so our first few efforts were more than just a bit rough - but I discovered that I enjoyed writing stories as much as I had ever enjoyed Game Master-ing them with paper and pencil RPGs.
The story, as the main character suggests with the opening line quoted above, is a pretty big one; so big that I decided to create an entire universe dedicated to exploring it for as long as I am able.  I've had the basic workings of the universe in my head for probably a decade, and I think that it's a great story - the only question in my mind is whether or not I can do it justice.
This book, Revelation, is told entirely via first-person point of view but succeeding entries in The Cobalt Heresy will be told from different perspectives.  As of the time of this writing, I'm up to seven points of view in the total body of work I've created.  I'll be adding a couple more, but the story isn't likely to sprawl since many of the divergent points of view come in the novellas, or 'Seeds,' which will be made available via several outlets for free, at least initially.
I really just want the mainline books of The Cobalt Heresy - of which there will be four - to move along at a good pace so I purposefully left certain things more-or-less unexplored in the pages of those entries.  The novellas, or 'Seeds,' will provide a way for readers to explore the world where The Cobalt Heresy takes place a little more in-depth without detracting from the mainline experience for those who prefer fast-paced, more action-oriented stories and aren't as concerned with details and back-story.
The characters in this series are far from perfect, but I don't try to overly muddy the waters with them.  Each one has his/her own agenda, and they will often make surprising - or even frustrating - decisions as the series progresses.  If a particular character's behavior doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, I suggest you take a look at the catalog of Seeds to see if there's one covering said character ;)
Thanks for reading this, and I hope you enjoy Revelation!
