Muse Writers Conference

Given how much I (and many others) got out of the last Muse Online Writers Conference, and I'm convinced this years will be even better, I thought it might be a nice idea to feature the conference on this website (a thank you to the organisers, workshop hosts etc... and a way to let others know about how great it is).

I'm also looking for others who are moderating, hosting workshops or just attending to give their thoughts on the conference. Anyone that's interested can send me their short piece (max 1000 words) by email to with "Muse Conference Feature" in the subject line. Choosen articles will be featured on the Writers and Authors website in October so please remember to include a byline.

For Immediate Release Features a Unique Look at Sci-Fi

Internet, World-Wide-- Infinite Space, Infinite God, edited by Karina and Robert Fabian makes a stop at and examines the question on Saturday 18th as part of its August virtual book tour.

"Virtual book tours are a terrific means for getting word out to readers," said Karina Fabian. "Bloggers like Jo Linsdell have audiences who are interested in books, in quality fiction, and in matters of writing, science and faith. We're visiting 43 sites over the month. We've had great fun preparing and expect to generate a lot of buzz about Infinite Space, Infinite God."

Infinite Space, Infinite God, which won the EPPIE award for best electronically-published science fiction comes out in print August 15 from Twilight Times Books. It features fifteen stories about the future Catholic Church. They tell of Catholics struggling to evangelize to aliens and lost human colonies and to determine the soul-status for genetically modified humans, genetically-designed chimeras, and clones made from the Martian sand. They feature the adventures of religious orders devoted to protecting interstellar travelers and inner-city priests. Two stories explore how technical advances allow monks to live in solitude on the Moon and to help one criminal learn the true meaning of Confession. The introductions discuss present doctrine and current trends in technology to set the framework for the stories and to encourage discussion. (Media room available at
