Richard Garnett created this tongue-in-cheek fantasy collection as a salute to the classics and such values as reason, moderation, and learning. In the title story, he takes the side of Prometheus, who gave fire to man, and the entirety of the Greek pantheon as their quarrels are supplanted by the enthusiasms of a new era. In The Demon Pope, Sylvester IIs love of wisdom and learning allow him to easily best Old Lucifer.
Garnett gently pokes fun at humanity at its worst, suggesting that foolishness may be our predominant sin. The stories produce smiles and modest chuckles, their final message a sense of wistful optimism -- perhaps all is not lost.
I first came across this collection while in graduate school, close to 35 years ago. Im pleased to see it in print and readily available.
