Fracture, An Ex-C Science Fiction Story

2 posts in this topic

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 and the history of the Body of God grown across worlds upon worlds, ages upon ages. Analogous to fundamentalist Christianity and the Bible and its appeal, this science fiction work questions what does it mean to doubt what is held righteous and true. They say the word of God is love. They say love. Who are the people who love, who hold truth? Who murder in the name of truth and love? What is truth? What is love? Belle faces these questions today, to blood. 
 

Fracture is a science fiction look at human evolution across light speed settlement and planetary development. Akin to the original La Planète des Singes (translated, Planet of the Apes) by Pierre Boulle, 1963, planetary settlers adapt and evolve beyond their settlers as far removed from them as the chimpanzee is from the human being.
