Arjay Books has information on Christian Fiction, Christian SF in particular, Irish Celtic fiction, and Canadian Fiction. Note that though the award winning Christian SF available via Arjay Books does contain some battle scenes and depictions of sin, these are neither dwelled upon nor graphically described. There is no so-called "adult" material here. Each novel depicts characters making ethical choices in their use of technology and also contains one or more explicit presentations of the Gospel. Warning: readers may therefore be provoked to think as well as be entertained.
In a sufficiently hi-tech society numerous individuals are capable of mass destruction via nuclear or biological weapons. To survive, civilization requires a pervasive moral code limiting the use of technology, but in a fallen world this needs policing, and so do the police.
James IV, most Christian High King of a very different Ireland, is deposed in 1941 by a cabal of his nobles. Exiled to Irish North America, he and his cousins find unlikely romance, promote traditional honour, and counter genocidal high-tech schemes. Sergeant Brian McIlhargey carries on the fight in a later generation.
Who arranged the King's deposition and exile? Which cousin has he become? Who are Brian's mysterious young wards? What really happened at the battle of Glenmorgan? Why does a mere Sergeant possess two of the three royal swords? Can one family stand against the corrupt rulers of two worlds? What if one of its own members goes bad?
The Interregnum is the sixty-year tale of James IV and his relatives as they attempt to thwart the genocidal schemes of Tara's enemies and regain the throne of Ireland.
Sutcliffe's Christian SF books may appeal to fans of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. It spotlights Christian ideas in a high-tech society very different from ours. This is soft science fiction, sword but not sorcery, good clean reading, and an exciting, fast-paced page turner--suitable for both teenagers and adults.

The website information on The Timestream has been expanded, reorganized, and updated. An article on the weights and measures of Ortho Earth (Hibernia) is available and so is a travel guide to the central part of Tara.
For those who become confused in following the story line of books in The Interregnum there is also a genealogy of the recent Hibernian royals and a glossary of terms used in The Interregnum available. These two files are now included in each of the books.
There is also now a historical timeline of some major events in Hibernian history (the altenate history of planet Ortho) located here and an explanation of Hibernian heraldry here to assist in following the books.
