Infinite Space, Infinite God is now available as a trade paperback online at Amazon; Amazon.co.uk; Bamm.com; Barnes & Noble; and Borders.

Winner of a 2007 Eppie Award, the anthology is edited by Karina and Robert Fabian. This anthology of 12 Roman Catholic-oriented, science fiction stories contains two works of my creation:

Mask of the Ferret is co-written by Ken Pick and is the first chapter of a novel-in-progress entitled The Adventures of Jill Noir. The story takes place in the far future on board the Coventry, an interstellar ship crewed by humans and anthropomorphic aliens. On board, a ferret-based genetic construct and a traveling Roman Catholic priest who is far more than what he appears deal with a deadly ancient artifact. Part horror story, part detective, part anthropomorphic fantasy, and all science fiction, the story has gotten very good reviews for its realistic portrayal of believable characters as well as fast-paced, hard SF.

I take responsibility for the plot and all the characters with the exception of Jill Noir. Ken Pick did the part of developing ferret-thief Jill as well as turning the story and atmosphere into a science fiction tale that would have made Poul Anderson proud and given H. Beam Piper a run for his money.

My second story included in the anthology is Canticle of the Wolf, a retelling of the legend of Saint Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio. First published in PawPrints Fanzine, it answers the question, when is a werewolf not a werewolf? What starts out as horror/fantasy turns into a science fiction tale to satisfy the appetites of both fans.

And of course, there are ten other stories included from other authors that all tackle the future of faith as well as the projected possible futures of the Roman Catholic Church.

I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Added to my Amazon wish list. (Gotta have something affordable for family members to purchase for me on gift giving occasions, otherwise they complain).

I think you'll LOVE it. It's a magnificent piece of work.

And Heavy, I still think that your and Ken's stories are the best.

Take care!

I went to our biggest B&N today but they didn't have it :( Maybe it's too early yet for them to have gotten them in. I'll check again later and if they still don't have it, I'll bug them to get some copies.

It's unlikely anybody will have it in-store. At this point its only available through the 'net.

If you click on the link to the publisher, there will be a direct link to the B&N online store where it is available for sale.
