For an upcoming blog tour this is a review copy Way back in 2008 I reviewed Infinite Space Infinite God an anthology of science fiction centered on Catholicism In some ways we cannot avoid comparing a second volume to the first In fact editors Karina and Robert Fabian do the same in the introduction when they point out that the first anthology had stories centering on the Church as an institution In this second book the stories tended to focus on individuals and their struggles using Catholicism as the context through which we view themI found Infinite Space Infinite God II to be a stronger set of stories overall and one that I could recommend unreservedly to non Catholics because the overall themes ran strongly to a general science fiction theme rather than to faith This is not to say that the stories don t address faith but even for nonbelievers there is something interesting to be found in practically every one of them The stories are imaginative and although some are light hearted all of them lead readers to think about serious issues as is the case with the best science fiction I also especially enjoyed the way that each of them featured the Church which has adapted to the future but which never ignores or betrays her missionAs before I found each story introduction to be well written and interesting although as before I found there was a bit too much revelation about the story or what characters learned for my taste I read most of them after I read the story as a result However this is an issue that I have come across in many anthologies and it is a matter of personal tasteMy favorite stories The Ghosts of Kourion This is a bittersweet tale of what if combined with time travel The story s ending will have us all examining our own smallest deeds Antivenin I was on the edge of my seat as Sister Rita ran into worse and worse encounters in this snakes on a spaceship story Riveting Tenniel A showdown of sorts from which it seems that no one can emerge victorious And is victory always what we think it is Dyads This was my hands down favorite Not only was I fascinated by the alien culture I was captivated by the brilliant translation of the Catholic faith into something that was eually alien but eually true revealed by God Also I was riveted by the conundrums faced by the two faiths in resolving their problemsI can t say nearly as much as I would like about these stories without giving away plots but these stories eual anything found in other science fiction anthologies They are practically perfect in every way The Compelling Communicator: Mastering the Art and Science of Exceptional Presentation Design light hearted all of them All about Prayer (Salah) Activity Book (Discover Islam Sticker Activity Books) lead readers to think about serious issues as is the case with the best science fiction I also especially enjoyed the way that each of them featured the Church which has adapted to the future but which never ignores or betrays her missionAs before I found each story introduction to be well written and interesting although as before I found there was a bit too much revelation about the story or what characters Fois gras et terrines learned for my taste I read most of them after I read the story as a result However this is an issue that I have come across in many anthologies and it is a matter of personal tasteMy favorite stories The Ghosts of Kourion This is a bittersweet tale of what if combined with time travel The story s ending will have us all examining our own smallest deeds Antivenin I was on the edge of my seat as Sister Rita ran into worse and worse encounters in this snakes on a spaceship story Riveting Tenniel A showdown of sorts from which it seems that no one can emerge victorious And is victory always what we think it is Dyads This was my hands down favorite Not only was I fascinated by the alien culture I was captivated by the brilliant translation of the Catholic faith into something that was eually alien but eually true revealed by God Also I was riveted by the conundrums faced by the two faiths in resolving their problemsI can t say nearly as much as I would Ruby on Rails.

SUMMARY Â Infinite Space, Infinite God II FREE READ Ç FOOTHILLFLYINGCLUB.CO ó Karina Lumbert Fabian Karina Lumbert Fabian ó 1 SUMMARY Twelve science fiction stories featuring great adventure with a twist of faith Infinite Space Infinite God II spans the gamut of science fiction from near future dystopias to time travel to space opera puzzles of logic to laugh out loud humor and against the clock suspense A great read for any science fiction fan; a must read for those seeking something new in their fictionThe Ghosts of Kourion by Andrew Seddon A grieving professor escapes back in time to live among a doomed peopleAntivenin by Karina Fabian Rescue Sister Rita takes on a ship full of venomous. Note Sept 23 2020 When I read short story collections intermittently over a long period of time my reactions are similarly written piecemeal while they re fresh in my mind That gives the reviews a choppy and often repetitive uality Recently I had to condense and rearrange one of these into a unified whole because of Goodreads length limit and I was so pleased with the result that I decided to give every one of these a similar edit Accordingly I ve now edited this oneMy copy of this anthology was a gift from one of the included authors my friend on and off of Goodreads Andrew Seddon The stories here are science fiction from a Christian and specifically Roman Catholic perspective There are 12 stories written by 11 authors one story has two authors and co editor Karina Fabian has three included stories I d encountered her work previously in Firestorm of Dragons and consider her a rising star in Christian speculative fictionAndrew s story The Ghosts of Kourion blending his interest in SF and Roman history is the lead tale in his story cycle about the adventures of Robert Cragg time traveling British historian from the 27th century Ring of Time Tales of a Time Traveling Historian in the Roman Empire The concept might remind readers of some of Connie Willis work but the plot style and spirit of the work is uniuely Andrew s own and the story displays his trademark excellent writing and well incorporated serious research In the first Sky Songs collection 2002 I d encountered Colleen Drippe through her excellent story Lost Rythar She s represented here by another great story set in a far future human colonized galaxy on Rythar a frigid planet whose humans have regressed though retaining some high technology to a socially primitive and warlike clan based culture but on which Roman Catholic Christianity brought by off worlders has begun to spread A uibble I have with the tale here however is that I don t share her pacifist position and in fact the historic Catholic teaching on the matter is closer to my just war philosophy than to her view Fabian s Frankie Phones Home is a fairly light weight yarn a seuel to a story in the first Infinite Space Infinite God anthology which loses a lot if like me you haven t read the first one But her other two stories here are outstandingJ Sherer s Tin Servants is set mostly in the war ravaged exploited Africa of 2147 in which the continent s current miseries and the abusive potential of robotic technology is extrapolated in all too believable fashion This story manages to be hopeful without harboring any illusions about the worst that the human species is capable of Derwin Mak s Cloned to Kill and Alex Lobdell s The Battle of the Narthex are also both high uality works John Rundle s Basilica in which a scarred and crippled priest with an engineering and military background is summoned before an ecclesiastical inuiry in a far future human colonized galaxy to explain what went on in connection with his hijacking of an Admiralty spaceship is gripping space opera as exciting and readable a story as any of its type Here though the author s dubious choice for villains turns out to be the ancient 4th 5th century heretical sect of Priscillians supposedly handed down for all these generations in secret and now emigrated into space Granted since there are no real life Priscillians around any demonizing them seems less offensive and off putting than the demonizing of Protestants in Dyads see below But the implicit message still seems to be that heretics are BA A A D and are so precisely because they re heretics The teaching of the Priscillians by now is fairly obscure but one tends to suspect that they weren t really into cosmic genocideThe longest selection at 58 pages is Dyads by Ken Pick and Alan Loewen Unfortunately this one proved to be a bitter disappointment like finding a section of maggot infested fruit in an otherwise perfect banana split That s doubly unfortunate because the authors have considerable stylistic skills create a really interesting alien world their world building is superb and set up a scenario that could have offered a really serious speculation on the uestion of possible alien races that might have their own distinctive revelation of the true God and a salvation history distinct from ours That opportunity however was suandered and replaced by an exercise in anti Protestant polemic actually hate literature with noble Catholics contending against a caricature of Protestantism that embodies every invidious stereotype ever vomited onto paper and then some including a Protestants as terrorists scenario although for some reason the news media has missed reporting on all the Baptist and Pentecostal suicide bombers who must be out there Gaaaggh Since Vatican II the response of the mainstream of the Catholic hierarchy to the separated brethren has been much less hostile than it used to be but not all of the authors here necessarily got that memo Despite that single major disappointment and the other uibbles though most of the selections are fine examples of the storytellers art they exude uality I found it impossible to pick a single favorite Overall a four star rating for the collection as a whole and many of the selections would easily deserve five I haven t read the original volume of which this is the seuel yet but it s
