More Lost Memories is a collection of short stories available as a paperback and as an eBook, each connected to Forget What You Can’t Remember by a minor character, a passing situation, or an unanswered question therein. While giving more depth and more details to the people and events of that novel, nine more narratives are revealed. Sex, pain, violence, and zombies, tech support for a flying city, religious prophecies fulfilled, true love and lasting marriage, re-engineered doomsday devices, gourmet cannibalism…
…and a whole lot more.
This story, They Stole God, is one of my favorites from this collection, delving into theology, cosmology, ethics & morality, while telling a tale that ends up containing dramatic & violent bank robberies and the violation of the sanctity of religious dogma – by force. Follow a group of monk-like religious adepts and their friends as they find that the deeper into the secrets of their religion they delve, the more impossible their escape from its clutches becomes. Some readers may want to look up the nature of such far-flung physics concepts as dark matter, dark energy, and the nature of singularities to understand the full scope of theology herein, and others will just want to know what strange plan they come up with next.
The eBook edition of the individual story, They Stole God, is available as for $1.99. You have your choice of eBookstores and eReaders, including (but not limited to) the following:
