New Release: Christ of the Abyss

by Joel V. Kela
A SF Novella


Orin and Lianna left Earth for the promise of a new life. Yet on the fabled planet of Constance, their dreams dissolved amidst war and disaster. Now all that remains is to seek the object of their hope and their doom, a massive statue set adrift in the blackness of space. If they can only get there in time...

Excerpt:
Orin banked their shuttle around the hull of another fractured warship, and before him spun two more. Minutemen ships. Morey class. Dead like those who helmed them. He checked his scope; debris filled the screen with endless red dots. Predators shredded and cross-chewed and left to spin in the rustless eternity of space. He looked again at the face of his wife. At the face of his son. He raised his eyes up along the sleeve of that great statue, up past the shoulder, and to the stars above.

Available from Amazon for $2.99 (about 48 pages, cover design by Jordan Dyke). Paperback and other ebook versions coming soon.
