A Christian Science Fiction novel with an Irish flavour
Arjay Books and Writers Exchange E-Publishing International are happy to announce another book in the "Worlds of the Timestream" universe.
TITLE: Worlds of the Timestream: The Throne, Book 3: Paladin.
Paladin is the sequel to Culmanic Parts, Rae's Blood, and Tara's Mother, continuing the alternate history enmity of the long-lived Samadeya-Qayin, ally of the Almighty and check against Pelik-Qayin, who is something more than evil twin.
After 1492, they are now joined by a new combatant assigned to keep Samadeya focused on his task. But the Paladin has no memories before that date, and is sometimes strays from her mission. She also shares their long life curse, and like them can, in extreme cases, be reset all the way to an infant who needs to grow and develop to apparent age in the mid-twenties before recovering memories.
Paladin is simultaneously the seventh book in Rick's award-winning series The Interregnum, concluding it with the definitive battle foreseen by Jack Devereaux and Richard Kent as the possible end of civilization.
Can General Meathe overcome her traumatic personal losses and defeat the superior forces of racist pretender Philip Desmond? Who is the true monarch of Hibernia? What becomes of young prodigy Lucas Caine? Can anyone help the Paladin, now recovering after a harsh reset, avoid madness from her resurgent memories? Who is the wild card RCMP inspector Canada dealt into Hibernia's game of thrones to bring Desmond Tirdian mob allies to justice?
Sutcliffe's award winning fiction appeals to fans of (and reviewers have favourably compared it to) C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. It incorporates a Christian world view into a story where a high-tech society has developed very differently from ours. This is soft science fiction, sword but not sorcery, good clean reading, and an exciting, fast-paced page turner.
Formerly a high school teacher, Rick Sutcliffe is currently Professor of Mathematics and Computing Science, Associate Dean of Science, and Chair of the Senate at Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C. His previous work includes a computer programming text, newspaper and magazine columns, lectures and a text on ethical and social issues in technology, and numerous published articles and papers. He has been involved in national and international standards work, and is also the co-inventor of R10, a new, modern programming language based on Modula-2. He lives with his wife Joyce in Bradner, BC Canada.
Paladin is priced under five dollars for a download and is available in electronic form from Writers Exchange E-Publishing and fine e-book retailers, including Amazon. Paladin is the final novel in both The Throne (Book 4) and The Interrregum (Book 7).
