God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything by Christopher Hitchens
God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

Charleydog, July 20, 2007

Are we seeing a trend today in the "Is religion or God real?" literature theme? Mr. Hitchens presents a logical view of why religion is at the root of "evil" things. I just finished reading "The Last Templar" by Raymond Khoury who says that Jesus was not the Son of God, but just a man and that the whole Christianity thing is based on myths. Albeit that The Last Templar is supposed to be fiction (but based on the Knights Templar) and Mr. Hitchens' book is non-fiction, but both present a very worrying theme.

The Fiend in Human by John MacLachlan Gray
The Fiend in Human

Charleydog, June 11, 2006

I love stories based in coal-fired, fog shrouded London and "The Fiend in Human" falls into this category. Add a dash of Jack the Ripper and a twisted plot and you have a very good story. Plus the author is a Canadian - yip, yip, hooray - makes us proud.
