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
