Catholic Science Fiction Anthology an EPPIE Award Finalist

 

Fredericksburg, VA--Is that religion in my science fiction or science fiction in my religion?  Writers Karina and Rob Fabian have no problem blending both, as seen in their recently published anthology, Infinite Space, Infinite God.

 

Infinite Space, Infinite God features fifteen stories about the future Catholic Church.  They tell about Catholics struggling to evangelize to aliens and lost human colonies and to determine the soul-status for genetically modified humans, genetically-designed chimeras, and clones made from the Martian sand.  They feature the adventures of religious orders devoted to protecting interstellar travelers and inner-city priests.  Two stories explore how technical advances allow monks to live in solitude on the Moon and to help one criminal learn the true meaning of Confession.  The introductions discuss present doctrine and current trends in technology to set the framework for the stories and, the Fabians say, to encourage discussion.

"The role of a current, active religion in the far future is barely explored territory.  Most SF omits religion or treats it as antithecal to an 'enlightened' future.  Yet the Catholic Church has forwarded the spiritual--and scientific--growth of Man for 2000 years.  Faith does not die, nor does how we live that faith, and we wanted to tell stories that reflected that," she said.  Fabian herself has written several SF and fantasy stories with religious elements, some in conjunction with her husband, Rob.  She's now working on a novel involving a nun of the Order of Our Lady of the Rescue, nuns trained in space search and rescue, as she oversees the safety of a mission to explore mankind's first-discovered alien spaceship. 

 

Infinite Space, Infinite God is a 2007 EPPIE awards finalist for best electronically-published science fiction.  It comes out in print this August.

 

The Fabians’ first anthology, Leaps of Faith, featured Christian SF and was a finalist for the 2003 EPPIE and 2004 Dream Realms awards.  Karina Fabian helped found the Catholic Writer’s Guild, and Robert Fabian is a former speechwriter for the Chief of Staff of the Air Force and writes about space policy.  Learn more at www.fabianspace.com.
