Betraying the God of Light

PRESENTED ON OCT 23, 2011
IN NISHINOMIYA @ VOL 10

Author Jared Angel introduces his ebook, Betraying the God of Light, and explains his views on archetypal conflicts, and how he attempted to create a fantasy novel with a more complicated moral compass than simply good versus evil. He uses real world examples and popular fantasy stories to illustrate the problems with such a black and white worldview, and the lack of diversity that often accompanies it.
