    And another discovery! A science fiction message board:

    New author discovery - Zenna Henderson - writer in the 50s-70s. Apparently she was Mormon. There is a sort of Mormon "vibe" if you will to the stories in her books, but more importantly it is a Christian vibe and there's a sense of hopefulness as opposed to some of the nihilistic-ness of some sci-fi written from a secular point of view. I'd be interested in what others think.

    Onr little hint about the book: Isreal is a 'power player' back on earth.

    I like Poul Anderson - haven't read that particular book though. I will have to take a look at it. I have a friend who is into alternate histories and sci-fi and it definitely sounds like something she might enjoy as well.

    Anybody read Poal Anderson's HIGH CRUSADE? Main plot is a 14th century English village takes over a alain starship and what happens to them between then and when they are 'found' in the future time. It's an older book.

    I am reading "A Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter M Miller and can't recommend it takes place after a nuclear war were the Catholic church has become one of the few guardians of knowledge. Can't wait for the end!

    What if one of the Wise Men was an alien ane he/she went and told their home planet about the Birth? And/or he/she was a witness to Jesus's life and went to their group and carried the message of Christ to intersteller space? What would their Catholicism look like? As for being older I'm coming up to being 65 and Andre Norton was writting up until the last year of her life (she died at age 93).

    Has anyone read The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester? I just discovered this sci-fi classic recently and am enjoying it a lot! I think it should be made into a movie. It has retro appeal that could be really cool in the right filmmaker's hands.

    halx, in answer to your question, if you know your Catholic Faith well, you can read with discernment most literature - in fact, the comparison and contrast is sometimes a good refresher course. What I mean is, see where the author's concepts agree or don't agree with Catholic teaching, and many of them can be accepted as fantasy storytelling devices, make believe, to advance the plot. Sort of like fairytales but on a more grownup level.

    I'm new to sci-fi and was wondering about Robert Jordan. There's all this "Light be with you", etc. Is it okay to read books with fantasy Gods? Like I said, "it's all new to me"! Thank you!
