Announce the publishing of

The Exile

A Christian Science Fiction novel with an Irish flavour

    When the opponents of genocide and of the use of weapons of mass destruction are killed, silenced, or exiled, how can a high tech society survice the machinations of those bent on power at any cost?
    Arjay Books and Writers Exchange E-Publishing International announce the impending publication of The Exile, Rick Sutcliffe's third novel in the Irish Christian science fiction/alternate history series The Interregnum and a sequel toThe Peace and The Friends.
     The Exile continues the story of Katherina/Karina as she seeks her vengeance on Sean Reilly, now High Lord Donal XII. But revenge turns out to be not quite what she expected. Meanwhile, Sheana, the infant she rescued from the sinking of The Scotia, grows up on the run, finds interesting friends of her own, and is drawn into the royal struggle against the genocidal MacCarthys. Meghan/Mara develops her Friends of the Day against the time when she may be able to take revenge of her own, and we follow her adventures in Afghanistan, Rome, and finally at Tara. A third story strand follows Day MacAllister, exiled on Tirdia following one of the many coups at Tara. Taught the fantastic story of an alternate earth and trained in its military ways by bluff and mysterious foster father Angus, Day longs to find life's meaning in the context of a real family, but the search leads to escalating violence, and the discovery that Angus' mythical world of Hibernia is all too real. Interleaved and intersecting with these stories is the tale of Kilkarney's famous grads of 1989. In the dying days of the elite cadet school's glory, Cole, Cath, and Maeve make their class almost as famous (but less infamous) as an earlier group of friends made the one of 1968.
     Sutcliffe's fiction will appeal to fans of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. It incorporates a Christian world view into a story where a high-tech society has developed very differently from ours. This is soft science fiction, sword but not sorcery, good clean reading, and an exciting, fast-paced page turner.
     Formerly a high school teacher, Rick Sutcliffe is currently Professor of Mathematics and Computing Science at Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C. His previous work includes a computer programming text, newspaper and magazine columns, lectures and a text on ethical and social issues in technology, and numerous published articles and papers. He lives with his wife Joyce in Bradner, BC Canada
     The Exile is priced under five dollars for a download (12.95 inc. postage on a CD) and is available exclusively in electronic form (pdf, html, and microsoft reader, CD) from Writers Exchange E-Publishing and fine e-book retailers. A fourth book in the series, The General, is expected in late 2003 or early 2004.
