Tears of the Wounded Sky
A novel in progress from Chris Tannhauser:
“The war for Earth was over in a day. The aliens remain in the shadows, ever-present and yet blithely resistant to meaningful contact. The human race, left to its own smashed devices, feeds on itself. In the remnants of the old United States a virulent new strain of Christianity rises with the coming of the Second Messiah, Just Chuck. Citizens lend their brains, their minds and perhaps their very souls to Telegnosis, a head-to-head web of porn, products and salvation. Meanwhile, deep in the network, virtual beings and rogue superweapons — gods in their own realm — battle for the future of a dead race. Is humanity even worth saving? And just what does Skinny want?”
