BRILLIANT GODS, a five-volume cycle, begins with a non-fiction essay about Greek Polytheism, an ancient religion still valid today. Each of the other four books is a moral tale, focusing on a single god or goddess. LABYRINTH AND MOON is the second of these fictions. Alexander, an ecology student at UC Santa Cruz, likes to keep track of his experiences. Staying in town over winter break, he takes photographs; he keeps a diary. Apart from his vivid dreams, nothing about his life could be called exceptional. Then he meets Artemis. She is smart, beautiful, and far too self-confident. Alexander isn't sure what to make of her. Would things be clearer, he wonders, if she really were a goddess? LABYRINTH AND MOON shows three interwoven initiations. The first, involving Alexander, deals with knowledge. The second, involving Theseus, deals with power. The third, involving the reader, deals with vision. You will see.

About the Author:

From the age of ten I tried to reconcile what I learned in school with what I learned in church. Science gave me a convincing way to understand physical reality. A Christian upbringing gave me inspiring stories that saw the world in a wholly different light. Although each approach was compelling in its sphere, the two often disagreed about matters of fact. One could not believe both at once. At Oberlin, at Berkeley, and in the college towns that followed, I wondered if this conflict might be irresolvable. Two things looked to be certain. The scientific model, while always evolving, values a single method consistent across cultures. By contrast, religions vary widely in their notions of evidence as well as in their claims. I began to compare the paths to religious truth, looking first West and then East. In the 1970s I took my first trip to Greece, visiting many classical sites and collections. Back home, I paid more attention to mythology. In museums, I sought out classical art. I read extensively about ancient polytheism. I returned to Greece for research. Forty years later, I know that scientific knowledge and spiritual knowledge can exist amicably together, each reinforcing the other, because they have done so before. This conclusion derives from scholarship, but even more from direct experience of the architecture, art, and literature of the Greeks and those whom they inspired.
