    When college professor Lou Meade is suddenly accosted by a talking owl - a familiar of the Greek deity Athena, goddess of wisdom, the practical arts, and warfare - it's the first moment in his new life phase, an era that will lead him further into the works of author C.S. Lewis and intellectual warfare against Eris, the wily Greek goddess of discord. Burstein's writing is straightforward, episodic, smart and exciting in a dry-humored way, which serves this atypical, Lewisesque work well. Readers of Lewis and gentler, clean cut-to-it readers of fantasy would do well to own this 70-page "neo-Pagan Fantasy" (as Burstein subtitles this intriguing work). Don't expect the epic bombast and graphic grimness of George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, but do expect to be entertained in a cerebral, sometimes phantasmagorical manner. Worth owning, this.

    A nice tight little novella. A fun and quirky read. It begins when a university professor finds an owl in the middle of the road one night while driving home from work. He takes the owl with him and finds out it's not just an owl. Thus begins an interesting adventure in which the professor, Lou Meade, falls down a kind of rabbit hole into a world of gods and goddesses that he never thought existed.
