For Immediate Release

 

Catholic Sci-Fi at LA Times Book Fair

 

Fredericksburg, VA--Catholic sci-fi fans will find something to interest them at the LA Times/UCLA Festival of Books this April 2? And 2?:  Infinite Space, Infinite God, an anthology of Catholic science fiction edited by Karina and Robert Fabian.

 

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.

 

"We're very excited to have our book at the festival," said Karina Fabian.  "It's a terrific opportunity to showcase a genre of fiction that often gets neglected--religious sci-fi.  I know people of any faith persuasion--but especially Catholics--will enjoy the stories.  Like all good sci-fi, we're examining issues rather than evangelizing.  This is faith-filled fiction for people who think."

 

Festival attendees can explore Infinite Space, Infinite God first-hand at booth 610, Zone F.  The LA times/ UCLA Festival of books, in its 12th year, is the largest book fair in the United States, with over 130,000 attendees and more than 370 famous authors.  The Festival, located on the UCLA campus, also features literary, cultural and musical presentations on six different outdoor stages. And explore our two giant children's areas, where there's storytelling, crafts, costumes characters and lots of family-oriented activities.  Admission is free.

 

Those unable to attend the festival can learn more about Infinite Space, Infinite God at its website, http://isigsf.tripod.com.
