FROM NATHAN C. BRINDLE:  The Lion and the Darkness.


The Long-Awaited Sequel to The Lion in Paradise

At long last, Ariela Rivers Wolff begins her mission to the Simulated Worlds.

As the Martyr of Sardristra, she finds herself in the position of a Joan of Arc, burned at the stake for preaching a sermon of love to a very violent race of . . . blue, four-legged, four-armed, sort-of-horse analogs. Five hundred years later in their history, she finds a totally-reversed welcome as “Saint Ardreyelya” in the country in which she first appeared. Will she be able to prevent the rest of the world from destroying “her” people before she can convert them, too?

As the Goddess of Mahoukai, she finds herself the deity of a world religion in a world governed by magic. And like all worlds with magic, inevitably there is a Demon Lord. She’ll have to deal with that Demon Lord before the world of Mahoukai can be realized into the True Universe . . . but in the event, the Demon Lord is an infiltrated agent of the very enemies she is sworn to fight in the real world. Can The Lion of God take on a Darkness, single-handed? If not, it may spell doom for the inhabitants of Mahoukai – and for herself.

SO THE MSM IN THE UK IS (OF COURSE) CLAIMING THAT NIGEL FARAGE’S REFORM UK PARTY IS “FAR RIGHT”, ISLAMOPHOBIC YADDA YADDA:  Reform UK’s largest political donation is from a British Muslim, who, shock! horror! agrees that there’s too much immigration and not enough assimilation of the immigrants:  Muslim millionaire gives major donation to Reform UK.

OPEN THREAD: Have fun, kids!
