A mysterious, anguished obsidian statue with piercing stone eyes arrives. It upsets the city, turns the University up-side-down, and hooks Belle, a pleasant, spiritual woman, calling her closer to God. She knows this statue. She knows its maker knows God. She wants to find them, but no one, not even the Network knows anything of who or where they are. Turning from her life partner, Gaid to a Network savvy player, she narrows the statue's origin to an isolationist community in uninhabitable lands. Gaid, her friends, her mentor, all question her resolve. How could she abandon everything and disappear this way? This isn’t Belle. Something is wrong.
Gaid suffers terribly the loss of Belle. Unable to listen to the perceptive words of Belle's telepathic mentor who intuits trouble, twists and loss of mind, loss of spirit, Gaid's toes seek instead more each day the rims of treacherous, bottomless cliffs, inviting an answer on the other side.
Advanced as Gea’s new settlers are, so is one stowaway sect's secret religion and the Tomes founding it. The Tomes. The book of God. The history of the Body of God grown across worlds upon worlds, ages upon ages, visionary upon visionary. Analogous to fundamentalist Christianity and the Bible and its appeal, this science fiction work addresses what it means to question what is held as truth and love. They say the word of God is love. They say love. Who are the people who say love, who hold truth? The people who judge and condemn entire worlds? Who murder and wage wars in the name of truth and love? What is truth? What is love? Belle faces these questions today, to blood.
Fracture is a science fiction look at human evolution across light speed settlement and planetary development. Akin to the original La Planète des Singes (translated, Planet of the Apes) by Pierre Boulle, 1963, planetary settlers adapt and evolve beyond their parents as far removed from them as is the human being from the chimpanzee.
