In an AccuWeather, Inc. release dated Armistice Day, November 11, 2015, reference was made to “a new multi-agency initiative launched by the Obama Administration to help prepare the country for the looming threat of extreme geomagnetic storms.”
The extensive devastation potential of even a relatively recent (in long terms) recorded geomagnetic event from the 19th century would thrust entire nations and modern civilizations back into the pre-Industrial Age; or worse. It is this very real potential that pulses throughout the story of Holy Fool, Holy Father, as our co-protagonist, Misha, eventually takes over the directorship of the Vatican Observatory. His
preparations for and response to a live event in the course of the plot constitute the Omega point for the novel.
