Other News from Arjay Books
Dec 24, 2002: Arjay Christian books was the featured site for January at Elizabeth Delayne's Christian fiction site. A new list of free fiction, including that of Rick Sutcliffe's, is located here.
May 5, 2002: A news note at the Crowsnest SF Site says "Well, here's a genre that site creator Rick Sutcliffe seems to have cornered all to himself, Irish Christian SF." The site reviewer then asks: "Hmm. Is that Protestant or Catholic Christian, Rick." Well, the Orthans have only one Christian church organization. It's pastors are called priests, but it's bishops are elected, the High Bishop is at Tara in Ireland, not Rome, and it preaches the gospel of personal salvation. In summary, the Orthan Church is both evangelical and universal (catholic). Read the stories and see for yourself.
Mar 15, 2002: Rick Sutcliffe was the Friday lunch keynote speaker at the EPIC (Electronically Published Internet Connection) conference in Seatle March 14-16, 2002. A copy of his address is here.

News of The Peace
I've put a fine new review of the Peace up from a fan. Have a look.
As of June 2001, my late unlamented former publisher listed The Peace as its number one best seller.
Big news for 2001 04 09:Well known SF reviewer Tom Easton writing his "Reference Library" column in the May 2001 edition of Analog magazine, concludes of The Peace "The pace and prose are well up to the standard familiar in paper books, and the convolutions of politics and character are enough to satisfy any fan of epics. It's worth its price, and then some." There is a copy of the full review here.
2001 04 02: The Peace was e-book of the month for March 2001 at Celia Ann Leaman's site. Her books are here.
Kim Ganoa has some very nice things to say in Kim's reviews. I have a copy here.
2000 11 01: The Peace was nominated for The Frankfurt awards in the fall of 2000. It didn't win, but hey, that's life.
Ethics and Technology Book now available
2000 07 25: The Fourth Civilization-Ethics Society and Technology is available on this site and now has an index. Originally written on contract for a major publisher, this text is used in Professor Sutcliffe's senior computing course on ethical issues in technology at TWU.
The Peace--Christian Science Fiction with an Irish flavour
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.
Writers Exchange now publishes Rick Sutcliffe's novel "The Peace." Available in electronic form (PDF, HTML, Rocket, Palm, CD) from the publisher and fine e-book retailers, as well as in paper from Booksurge, "The Peace" was the first in a new multi-volume series "The Interregnum"--a novel of the Timestream.
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?
Sutcliffe's fiction 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.
