The Christian Science Fiction of Ward Wagher


Impossible Nazi

Heinrich Schloss, the Chancellor of the German Reich cannot rest. He successfully surmounts one challenge only to be faced with another. England shuns the peace table. The Jews in Palestine, though thankful for Germany’s support, seek their own self-determination. The United States is wary of a commitment to a cohesive European strategy.

Schloss is threatened by those who would unknowingly expose his past as an alternate Schloss from a parallel universe. The High Command of the German armed forces resist his efforts at reform. And Winston Churchill wants him dead, and is constantly scheming to accomplish that task.

Everywhere Schloss looks, he sees storm clouds on the horizon.


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.
