Accidental Nazi -- New!

A misguided time travel experiment in the twenty-fifth century fans out to impact hundreds of parallel universes. The effects varied widely and impacted billions of individuals. It most directly impacted individuals who appear to be at the precise inflection point to jump them into a world that was almost the same as the place where they left.

Heinrich Schloss had arrived at Berlin's Tempelhof airport in 1982 to pick up his wife after her trip to London. After a brief migraine-like spasm, he opened his eyes to Tempelhof in 1941 to witness Hitler's death in an airplane accident. A history professor who had grown up in a divided Berlin was now a party chieftain in Nazi Germany. All of those speculative conversations around the table with colleagues about what could have been changed to avoid the fall of Germany now had immediacy.

The Schloss of this world had murdered Martin Bormann to assume his role of party leader. He now had to make himself into the alternate Schloss and interact with the murderous Nazis who surrounded Hitler. Schloss discovers the perils of simply trying to do the right thing.

    Principles of Christian Science-Fiction

    The goal of Christian Science-Fiction is to create an exciting story in the speculative realm and also honor Christ the Lord. In order to achieve this goal we observe the following basic principles:

    • 1. Any references to the Christian faith, and doctrine shall be compatible with the Bible.
    • 2. While conflicting philosophies may be presented, ultimately the story shall support what is commonly known as the Christian World-view.
    • 3. Gratuitous and graphic violence shall be avoided.
    • 4. Explicit sexual content shall be avoided, and sex within the context of monogamous marriage shall be presented as the ideal.
    • 5. Language that includes swearing, explicit vulgarity, and general coarseness shall be avoided.

    In general, the text should be designed so that the author will not be embarrassed to have the book read by church members / spouses / children.
