Welcome to my web of words linked to my book, Angel War, and those works of literature I have loved in my life. My name is Philip Dodd. I was born in 1952, live in Liverpool, England, have a degree in English literature from Newcastle University, and I have been writing songs, stories and poems since I was twelve. My book, Angel War, was published on Tuesday, 23rd, April, 2013 by Fast Print Publishing. As it took me twenty six years to write, I felt I owed it to my story to get it published. It can be found on the Fast Print Publishing on line bookshop at www.fast-print.com and on Amazon and I am pleased to be a Goodreads Author with my own page for my book on Goodreads. My book can also be found on Pinterest and the New Book Journal. My main inspiration for my book was The King James Version of the Holy Bible, which has had a great influence on English literature ever since it was first published. It has inspired many of my favourite writers, such as John Milton, Dylan Thomas, T.S. Eliot, John Donne, Thomas Traherne, William Blake, J.R.R. Tolkien, and William Wordsworth. My book was inspired by Chapter Twelve of the Book of Revelation, which speaks of the war in heaven, fought between Michael and his angels and the dragon and his angels. The Bible only says that the war happened, but not why. So I decided to write my own version of the events of the war and its aftermath. Much art, paintings, sculptures, poems, and stories, have been inspired by the same chapter in The Bible. 'Paradise Lost' by John Milton, for one fine example, was inspired by the tale of Eden in the Book of Genesis and Saint John's vision of the war in heaven in the Book of Revelation.
