Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules. To apply a rule to 
the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly, in cases where it fits and in cases where 
it does not fit, is pedantry... To apply a rule with natural ease, with 
judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words 
of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the 
situation, is mastery. -George Polya, professor of mathematics (1887-1985)

  Children of Chaos

  Greg F. Gifune

  Delirium Books 2009

  In a torrential downpour, Phil, Jamie and Martin-three teenage boys-encounter 
a strange and enigmatic man covered in horrible scars who will change their 
lives, their destinies and the very fate of their souls forever.  When their 
encounter leads to murder, they realize this eerie stranger may not have been a 
man at all, but something much more.
  Thirty years later the boys-now men-lead tormented lives filled with 
horrifying memories of the scarred man.  Phil is a struggling writer, divorced, 
with a daughter and a mounting drinking problem.  Jamie is a defrocked priest 
with depraved secrets and horrible addictions, and Martin, a madman who thinks 
himself a god, has vanished into a desolate desert region of Mexico and 
established a feared and violent blood cult.  When Martin's dying mother hires 
Phil to find her son and bring him home, Phil embarks on a perilous journey 
that will take him from the seedy streets of Tijuana, to a dangerous and 
allegedly haunted stretch of desert Mexican road known as The Corridor of 
Demons.  At the end of the road, in an old and previously abandoned church, 
Martin and his followers wait in the Hell-on-Earth they've created deep in the 
desert.  There will be only one chance for redemption, one chance for 
salvation, and one chance to stop the rise of an antichrist's bloody quest for 
demonic power.
  From the void, came chaos.  These are its children.
