McNeel's World

A New Book by
Ward Wagher

A different America. A different world. In the New York City of 1967, the primary motive power is steam. Electricity was unknown as was its many applications. In this world, a cosmic happening destroyed the committee that labored over the new constitution in Philadelphia. And a very different nation emerged.

Patrick McNeel, a craftsman of small steam engines in the city is invited to repair the mechanical computing devices utilized by the American emperor. He unwittingly sets into motion a chain of events that threatened his life and the lives of his family. These forces threatened to destroy any advances in American automation and the economic growth that depended upon it.

During this time, the head of the Imperial Computational Bureau suggests some advances in the prevailing technology that intrigues Patrick. He begins to realize that steam power isn’t the pinnacle of mankind’s achievements. He turns to inventing devices that may shake the foundations of American Civilization.

McNeel's World is the exciting new book in the Parallel-Multiverse by Ward Wagher. Available as an eBook and paperback. Now also available in hardcover!

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.
