Creatures of Light and Darkness Roger Zelazny
Publisher: Avon Books
There was magic then, nobility, and unimaginable cruelty. Based on what I've read, Roger Zelazny wrote this book for his own pleasure, and later Samuel R. When God created heaven and earth he said, “Let there be light, and there was light, and the light was good.” He separated it from the darkness. The ten pillars: creatures of light and darkness. And to each generation was born a creature of Light and a creature of Darkness. Delany persuaded him to publish it. Even in the darkest places, the fires are being lit. And great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between Good and Evil. Seth discovers that someone, or something, has released a plague that transforms beings of light into creatures of darkness. If you wish to see them for yourself, travel into the depths. He is put to a test here by these beings so they can decide if he is the fulfillment, one that requires he tame both the creatures of light and darkness, and he passes. All creatures, all cultures, are touched by the flame. And it wasn't until I was in my late twenties that I figured out the hows and whys of attracting light versus dark beings. If you are emanating fear and anxiety, it's like opening a door for the dark entities.
