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

From the Author

---Interview with author Harmon Cooper---

Where did this book come from? You normally write science fantasy and LitRPG.

While I have published nearly thirty books, Star-Spangled Apocalypse was the FIRST book I wrote. I shelved it for nearly a decade, and decided to take a look at the story again. What I found was a hyper original tale that blended urban fantasy with a buddy road trip story that had elements of political satire, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and the tension of a post-apocalyptic story. 

The version you see now has been heavily revamped. For example, at the time I wrote it, there weren't smart phones, so I added this and other items and references to the final version. It took me a good six months to really polish my old manuscript, and I am very happy with the final product. It is the hardest book I've ever written, the most important, and the most tragic.

This book actually fits into my greater body of work. If you've read some of the other, stranger books I've written such as Boy versus Self and The Zero Patient books. To my newer readers, this will be one hell of a ride. To older readers, you'll see a few things that tie this story into the Proxima Galaxy. Still, this will be unlike anything you've read from me (you've been warned!). To all readers: please review this book when you finish, and look out for the audiobook narrated by Andrea Parsneau.

Why did you destroy Austin, Texas in this story? I heard Austin was a cool place to live, especially for Californians.

It is a great place to live, believe me, I'm from there! I didn't mean to destroy Austin, but don't worry, I only destroyed downtown Austin. Besides, I technically didn't destroy it, according to the book, the Russians did. But that may be an alternative fact. Read the book to find out.

What else can I expect from this story? Any Easter eggs?

There are a good many Easter eggs in this story. Some are references to my other works through corporate conglomerates used in Fantasy Online and The Feedback Loop series.

Others are biblical, or mirror encounters written about in religious texts. For example, Virgil's meeting with Krishna was written to mirror what took place in the Bhagavad Gita, it was then spliced Jay Z lyrics that fit the theme of the encounter. 

There are paranormal encounters as well, some quite frightening and dark. They aren't quite horror, but they do quickly shift that way at points, especially for the character known as James.

Finally, you can expect a solid tale that you won't soon forget, a book that is very close to my heart, and an odd urban fantasy that tackles some very controversial issues and doesn't set out to solve them.
