Steve Bartholomew about this book: Chapel Perilous: This book is a departure from my usual themes. That is, it is not historical fiction at least in the usual sense. Inspired by the work of Robert Anton Wilson, it lies more in the realm of paranormal fantasy, or postmodern satire. Benjamin, the protagonist, is gifted or cursed with a wild talent: He can sense danger. He has also the ability to travel out of his body at night, and sometimes to see spirits. He falls afoul of a black government project and men who want to harness all wild talents. Abducted and confined to a secret research center, he must find a way to escape and elude his pursuers. On the way he encounters both enemies and allies, including a woman who dwells in another dimension, as well as a wandering Gypsy, a lesbian biker chick, and a certified crazy man.
The story is a tale of the struggle between one individual and the Powers that Be. Benjamin learns that although his obstacles seem insurmountable, he does have allies and friends.
