The Philosopher's Flight
The Philosopher's Flight A Novel By Miller, Tom, 1980- Book - 2018 | First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition

An interesting concept, that women can fly and do other wonderful things by “empirical philosophy,” that unfortunately bogs down in a run-of-the-mill plot and resolution. This is fantasy/historical fiction. It is neopaganism (Magick Wimmen!) pitted against the caricature of a dimbulb Luddite Christian Fundamentalist. It is almost entirely anachronistic, but not in the usual sense. It projects modern-day beliefs backward in time to World War I. This type of fiction might appeal to readers of 2018 – if they have no inkling of the changes in culture from 1917 till now.
