In the Year of Our Lord: 2202, Edward Lee - Horror feature
A book of truth and the most terrifying confusion
Sometime between the years of A.D. 81 and A.D. 96, a persecuted Christian called John the Divine went to the Greek island of Patmos and wrote the BOOK OF REVELATION.
Theologians and scholars to this day do not know if this author was also St. John the Apostle, personal friend of Jesus Christ.
Detractors and the devout alike all agree that the product of “John’s” pen has demonstrated itself as one of the most mysterious books ever written.It is a book of wonders and horrors, of ciphers and hints, of truth and the most terrifying confusion. It is a book of riddles, symbols, and metaphors that presage the end of the world. It is a book endlessly discussed and bitterly argued over.
However, in its illuminated pages lie one passage which seems wholly literal and free from the need for interpretation. It’s a pinpoint physical description of Heaven.Some twenty-two hundred years later, the world is much different than is it today.
It is a stultifying theocracy in which “God” (whichever name His followers choose to give him) is worshipped, praised, and hallowed via incomprehensible technologies and horrifying philosophies.
After centuries of analysis, astrophysicists and monumental cryptographic computers have deciphered all of the clues that John the Divine infused into his Book: not just the appearance of Heaven but also its exact location.In the year A.D 2202, we send a ship to go there…

About the author - Edward Lee is an American novelist specializing in the field of horror, and has authored 40 books, more than half of which have been published by mass-market New York paperback companies such as Leisure/Dorchester, Berkley, and Zebra/Kensington. He is a Bram Stoker award nominee for his story "Mr. Torso," and his short stories have appeared in over a dozen massmarket anthologies, including THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES OF 2000, Pocket's HOT BLOOD series, and the award-wining 999. Several of his novels have sold translation rights to Germany, Greece, and Romania. He also publishes quite actively in the smallpress/limited-edition hardcover market; many of his books in this category have become collector's items. While a number of Lee's projects have been optioned for film, only one has been made, HEADER, which was released on DVD to mixed reviews in June, 2009, by Synapse Films.
Lee is particularly known for over-the-top occult concepts and an accelerated treatment of erotic and/or morbid sexual imagery and visceral violence. He was born on May 25, 1957 in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Bowie, Maryland. In the late-70s he served in the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division, in Erlangen, West Germany, then, for a short time, was a municipal police officer in Cottage City, Maryland. Lee also attended the University of Maryland as an English major but quit in his last semester to pursue his dream of being a horror novelist. For over 15 years, he worked as the night manager for a security company in Annapolis, Maryland, while writing in his spare time. In 1997, however, he became a full-time writer, first spending several years in Seattle and then moving to St. Pete Beach, Florida, where he currently resides.
Of note, the author cites as his strongest influence horror legend H. P. Lovecraft; in 2007, Lee embarked on what he calls his "Lovecraft kick" and wrote a spate of novels and novellas which tribute Lovecraft and his famous Cthulhu Mythos. Among these projects are THE INNSWICH HORROR, "Trolley No. 1852," HAUNTER OF THE THRESHOLD, GOING MONSTERING, "Pages Torn From A Travel Journal," and "You Are My Everything." Lee promises more Lovecraftian work on the horizon.
