Ooter’s Place and Other Stories of Fear, Faith, and Love

13 Short Tales

Why doesn’t God do something to stop the evil and suffering in the world? Some people who call themselves the “Atheists Against God” think they know the answer. And they know what they’re going to do about it, too.

A hired gun—who doesn’t use a gun and won’t be hired by just anyone—realizes that his profession is killing him, but finds it hard to quit. Until he discovers that his talent has more uses than he ever dreamed possible.

A young boy learns that his best friend is an alien. But does that mean they have to stop being friends?

 

The Lost Stories: A Series of Cosmic Adventures Cover ArtThe Lost Stories: A Series of Cosmic Adventures

Biblically Inspired Science Fiction Humor

These are the adventures of James Kollins: greedy, petty, selfish captain of the galactic warship “DeVille“; a man obsessed with the holodrama “Captain Courageous and the Women Who Love Him”; a man completely unforgiving of his much-maligned first officer.  A man who has just met the Creator of the universe, though he doesn’t quite realize it yet, and whose life is about to change in ways he never dreamed possible, though he doesn’t quite know it yet.

Part loving Star Trek parody homage, part spiritual journey, The Lost Stories is a series of cosmic and comic adventures that is silly, fun, and also demonstrates the Power of God working in the life of even the most self-obsessed warship captain you’ve ever met.
