CBC interview highlights author Dan Dowhal’s warning in book skyfisher

skyfisher_thmCBC radio host Mary Ito, in an upbeat exchange with author Dan Dowhal November 20 on CBC Radio’s Saturday morning program “Fresh Air,” probed the fine line between reality and virtual experience that forms the plot of skyfisher, Dowhal’s new work of speculative fiction about what happens, as the author put it figuratively, “When Rev. Jim Jones meets the internet.”

Ito mentioned the author’s wide-ranging career, from work in advanced technology to research in the social implications of new media, as contributing to a rewarding balance for readers between a technically-accurate book and an enjoyable work of fantasy. ”I wanted the book to be accurate, even educational, but the technical feats described never get in the way of the bigger themes about religion and life.”
