A Dangerous Energy
Whitbourn, John,
ISBN: 0575053550
Gollancz Fantasy, London, 1992. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: Peter Mennim -- Dustwrapper. First Edition. 317 pp., illustrated dustwrapper. A neat and tidy copy. "His first novel won the 1991 First Fantasy Novel Competition jointly organized by BBC Radio 4's Bookshelf and the publishers Gollancz. The novel is set in an alternate world UK, ingeniously outlined through a history examination paper, where Royalists won the Civil War and the stern guardianship of the Catholic Church has, as in Keith Robert's Pavane (1968), retarded technology; this Church controls and polices magic. The selfish, amoral anti-hero Oakley is magically initiated by elves, enters the Church, and proves brutally effective in "crusades" against England's heretical Protestant "Levellers". He advances himself by misusing demons, source of all major magical power; these and their conjuration exude an effective stench of wrongness, as in James Blish's Black Easter (1968). Oakley's climactic experiment in demonological research, though horrifying and hugely destructive, leads him to a futile dead end. He dies quietly in bed, to learn (like C.S. Lewis's damned) that his lifetime's efforts have achieved only his utter severance from God" (David Langford/ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SF) Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
