The Rebellion of Satan in Milton’s Paradise Lost
Subscribe: Articles Comments. Walter Alexander Raleigh, writing at the conclusion of the nineteenth century, clearly took Satan to be the hero of the poem: Satan unavoidably reminds us of Prometheus. Lewis developed the idea further in his A Preface to Paradise Lost : A creature revolting against a creator is revolting against the source of his own powers — including even his power to revolt.

Arnold, Lewis, C. A Preface to Paradise Lost. For some, the darkness of this tale might be a bit much, given that it is fairly relentless, with no apologies offered for the vicious, almost offhand casual way lives are destroyed, but that is also a part of the story's devious allure. For those who can handle such diabolical tactics in the stories they read, this one should be quite an entertaining addition to their collection.

In the Travelling Tyrant: Paradisa Lost, the known universe is divided between immensely powerful corporate entities and a comparatively feeble Earth Government with the outer reaches of the Upper Arm inhabited by mercenaries, thieves and other undesirables.
When a corporation exhausts all legal possibilities of evicting a group of religious settlers from the untouched, desirable planet Paradisa, the executives turn to the mercenary outfit, the Travelling Tyrant, to achieve their goal. Mordid, th In the Travelling Tyrant: Paradisa Lost, the known universe is divided between immensely powerful corporate entities and a comparatively feeble Earth Government with the outer reaches of the Upper Arm inhabited by mercenaries, thieves and other undesirables. Mordid, the man behind the Travelling Tyrant brand, is the wicked, humourous and resourceful anti-hero of the story.
In between conquering planets for corporate clients, he maintains tenuous order over his ranks of scheming soldiers and officers. While his two senior generals aspire to his role, he avoids becoming a casualty while pitting the two men against each other. The constant shifting alliances within the Travelling Tyrant organisation are mostly governed by opportunity and bided time - and despite the cut-throat brutality, even the young soldier of the outfit, Jenkins, can think no further than a promotion and a chance to prove himself.

While mutiny simmers beneath these tensions, the Travelling Tyrant discovers that the peaceful and weak inhabitants of Paradisa will pose more of a challenge than he initially expected. Although the Tyrant's enthusiastic public relations team set out expecting to film a glorious and rapid victory, the planet is inhospitable, the conflict is merciless and their valued client's representative disappears in the middle of the battle.
The novel is humourous and fatalistic, maintaining a rapid pace with multiple plot twists. The mercenaries are constantly feuding and engaging in deadly politics, while the apparently 'innocent' enemy are concealing their own secrets. Every individual unabashedly prioritises their own interests - from the claw-armed Admiral Hurth to the head of public relations Eryn - but the ensuing chaos is entertaining and reveals a great deal about the canny Mordid.
Although the mood is light and the humour occasionally absurd - such a predatory spider who adopts one of the soldier's skulls - the author is meticulous and realistic in depicting the horrors of profit-waged war.
I would recommend this book to people who appreciate dark wit and fans of authors such as Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett. I also found the official website for the book to be a useful source of background information and further biographies about the key characters.
