James Morrow Talks About “The Last Witchfinder”

Author James Morrow talks about “The Last Witchfinder”, and discusses the rise of the modern Age of Reason, “a historical-fiction that uses that uses witchhunts as a means to introduce the titanic paradigm change that represents a shift from renaissance, that admires the cultural past, to the era of enlightenment, where we become authors of new discoveries and become pragmatical and science-based.
James Morrow (born March 17, 1947) is an American novelist and short-story writer known for filtering large philosophical and theological questions through his satiric sensibility. Most of Morrow’s oeuvre has been published as science fiction and fantasy, but he is also the author of two unconventional historical novels, The Last Witchfinder and Galápagos Regained. He variously describes himself as a “scientific humanist,” a “bewildered pilgrim,” and a “child of the Enlightenment.”
Morrow presently lives in State College, Pennsylvania with his second wife, Kathryn Smith Morrow, his son Christopher, and his two dogs. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_K._Morrow
