The Final Hero - A Novel of the Cold War

William Walker was a successful novelist and also a frustrated one. He had picked up a contract to write a newspaper column featuring American military heroes of Korea and Vietnam. This required time away from home, which frustrated his wife. Finally agreeing to drop the column at the end of the contract, he made his plans to resume writing fiction.

A friend, who was a flag officer, convinced William to write one last column. By doing so he became an unwitting pawn in the contest between the Warsaw Pact and NATO. As he was drawn deeper into the intrigue, he found himself accused on all sides. The American government thought he was a Soviet agent. His wife was convinced he had lied to her and was disloyal. His friends in the Army thought he was collaborating with the Russians.

The nations spin rapidly towards all-out war as William struggles to clear his name. And would it even matter in the end?

Gravity Rising

Lawrence Berthold, Inventor…

A dystopian civilization struggled back from the brink after the Earth experienced a Carrington Event two-hundred years before. The sun had lashed mankind’s planet with a solar storm of such ferocity that humans were knocked back to the dark ages.

Larry Berthold struggled to complete his doctorate at MIT by working through inconsistencies in the math of the great scientists Charles Westerly and Audry Clenèt. As he made progress, he and his friend Maggie Bosstic experienced strange and unsettling events in winter-swept Boston. Someone was opposed to his research.


Principles of Christian Science-Fiction

The goal of Christian Science-Fiction is to create an exciting story in the speculative realm and also honor Christ the Lord. In order to achieve this goal we observe the following basic principles:

  • 1. Any references to the Christian faith, and doctrine shall be compatible with the Bible.
  • 2. While conflicting philosophies may be presented, ultimately the story shall support what is commonly known as the Christian World-view.
  • 3. Gratuitous and graphic violence shall be avoided.
  • 4. Explicit sexual content shall be avoided, and sex within the context of monogamous marriage shall be presented as the ideal.
  • 5. Language that includes swearing, explicit vulgarity, and general coarseness shall be avoided.

In general, the text should be designed so that the author will not be embarrassed to have the book read by church members / spouses / children.
