Editorial Reviews


Happily, the authors represented in this anthology have avoided (these) pitfalls. Their brief was to create stories with a religious theme, in which religion is as central to the story and presented as the foundation factor it represents for humankind -- whether the religion is Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Pagan, or something else -- stories in which the religious element is just as central as the science or magic is in good speculative fiction of the science fiction or fantasty persuasion. -- Katherine Kurtz. -- Publisher Comments

...Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book. Some of it disturbed me, and much of it surprised me. The Aztec alternate history story, in particular, sticks with me. If you are interested in religion(s) and sci-fi/fantasy, and have an open mind on religious fiction, you will most probably find this a good read.
