Literature has always been one of the sources of inspirations and recording of the events of each era. Postmodern fictional works have tried to deal with the manifestation of postmodern man and his postmodern obsessions. This paper, hinging upon the text and context analysis, has tried to show Paul Austorís tact in the revelation of postmodern manís war obsession in his work Man in the Darkness. These have been presented via the lenses of postmodern narrative and plural histories as the prominent postmodern features. He has been able to make it clear that man in his body/soul, text/ context, and reality/fantasy is obsessed by war and postmodern world idiosyncratic obsessions the prominent of which is the threat of imminent war and is consequences and drawbacks on the mind, soul, context, reality, and fantasy of postmodern man at the mercy of diverse interpretations of texts and war events. These all may have been the imminent threats of international conflict or the like which has changed the war themes unstable, loose, and nebulous.
