Fracture, An Ex-C Science Fiction Story

Recommended Posts

Voice    225

A mysterious obsidian statue with piercing stone eyes upsets the city, turns the University up-side-down, and hooks Belle, a pleasant, spiritual woman, calling her closer to God. She knows this statue. She knows its maker knows God. She wants to find them, but no one, not even the Network knows anything of who or where they are. Turning from her life partner, Gaid to a Network savvy player, she narrows the statue's origin to an isolationist community in uninhabitable lands. Gaid, her friends, her mentor, all question her resolve. How could she abandon everything and disappear this way? This isn’t Belle. Something is wrong.
   

Gaid suffers terribly the loss of Belle. Unable to listen to the perceptive words of Belle's telepathic mentor who intuits trouble, twists and loss of mind, loss of spirit, who implores Gaid's help to reach Belle again to no avail, Gaid's toes seek more each day the rims of treacherous, bottomless cliffs, inviting an answer on the other side.

 

Advanced as Gea’s new settlers are, so is one stowaway sect's secret religion and the Tomes founding it. The Tomes. The book of God. The history of the Body of God grown across worlds upon worlds, ages upon ages, visionary upon visionary. Analogous to fundamentalist Christianity and the Bible and its appeal, this science fiction work addresses what it means to question what is held righteous and true. They say the word of God is love. They say love. Who are the people who say love, who hold truth? Who judge and condemn worlds? Who murder and wage war in the name of truth and love? What is truth? What is love? Belle faces these questions today, to blood. 

 

Pre-release .pdf is yours for asking.

I know we have a couple of science fiction fans here.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...
