Catholic Science Fiction Anthology wins EPIC Award
Fredericksburg, VA--Infinite Space, Infinite God, an anthology of Catholic
science fiction won the EPIC award for best electronically-published science fiction on March 10, 2007.
"We're especially excited
because this year, there was no anthology category. The fact that we competed
so well against both SF novels and secular works shows how Infinite Space, Infinite
God appeals to a wider audience than just Catholics," said Karina Fabian. Fabian edited the anthology with her husband
Robert Fabian and has three stories in it.
The win doesn't surprise
Fabian, however. Infinite Space, Infinite
God has already received several strong reviews that not only compliment the inspirational content but also the treatment
of some difficult issues. "This isn't fiction to make you feel good about your
faith. It's faith-filled fiction to make you think," Fabian said.
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. (For more, see http://isigsf.tripod.com.)
Its publisher, Twilight Times
Books, also published the EPPIE winner Fire Owl and several EPPIE finalists. The book is out in electronic format and comes out in print August 15.
The Fabians’ first
anthology, Leaps of Faith, a Christian SF anthology, was a finalist for the 2003
EPPIE 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. They continue to write science fiction and fantasy, some secular and some religious. Learn more at www.fabianspace.com.
