    Zombies and werewolves and aliens, oh my!

    Demons, zombies, werewolves, aliens, angels, sadistic persecutors, lunatics, stoic martyrs of the faith, fearful victims, secret agent hit men, One State Government, supernatural deliverance, a battle of wills, hope, faith, the power of God. This impressive collection is loosely tied under the umbrella of Biblical Speculative Fiction. There are too many tales and too much variety to do it justice in this brief review. The first story, ¿Frozen Generation¿ by Andrea Graham, is an instance of dystopia. In this future, some mothers sell unborn fetuses to companies that will either sell the children as slaves or harvest the organs. One worker is a Black Christian who rescues Black embryos but has no compunctions about destroying White fetuses. In ¿Miracle Micro,¿ Frank Creed offers a cyberpunk special that any techno-freak will appreciate. It¿s Chicago around 2036, when Fundamental Christians are labeled as terrorists, and the Federal Bureau of Terrorism hires an electrical-technical whiz to spy on the Underground Body of Christ. I don¿t want to spoil the surprise, but the Holy Spirit interferes with his plans of sabotage. A. P. Fuchs creates an extremely dark and emotionally charged ¿Undeniable,¿ exploring the very real possibility of Christians who are tortured because of their faith in Jesus Christ and how much they can bear without denying Him. At the other end of the spectrum is a pun-infested fantasy by Stephen L. Rice called ¿At the Mountains of Lunacy.¿ A motley band of adventurers are hired to open a mountain pass and find a lost alchemist. Told from the viewpoint of one of the adventurers, this tale is full of lunacy: maniacal kings, werewolves whose leader is Lord Lovaduc, greedy but fragile zombies, and a nutty alchemist. If you are an aficionado of any type of science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, horror, or cyberpunk, you are going to want a copy of Light at the Edge of Darkness. It will keep you at the edge of your seat.
