Working on it, Jim! It ain't as easy as it used to be. Anybody got the address/eddress for that Koran-burning pastor in Florida?

Stephen,
well, I hope you offend somebody of note in the near future!
LOL

My satirical novel Polly! got the following reader review on GoodReads, and I thought I'd share it with you guys:
****************

The teaser sounded like fun, and when I started, I felt like I was reading an episode of the Twilight Zone (which is not a bad thing to me).

The problem came when the author started making jokes about God. I don't like that. I ignored the first one, and even the second, but then it just continued on...

There were several quite blasphemous jokes about God and Jesus Christ that I found highly offensive. I ended up deleting the ebook without even finishing it because it offended me so badly.

I would not recommend this book, or this author to anyone who believes in Jesus.

********************************

It makes a fella's chest swell with pride to know I'm doing something right. If only this person were important, my financial future would be secure!

Heh, nice title.
Comment by Johnny P on October 18, 2010 at 4:57pm
hi there,
have just joined and am publishing a book called 'Free Will? An investigation into whether we have free will or whether I was always going to write this book'

I'll let you know when it's published. This looks to be an interesting group.

For non-sci-fi atheist fiction, there are also the two novels by Dale McGowan, Calling Bernadette's Bluff and its sequel Good Thunder.

Has anyone read this:

Religion and the Human Prospect
by Alexander Saxton

Thank you for this group, Calla. My next two books may have some black on white that would have interest for Nexus members. My Address is a River has seventy stories from my work with homeless people and prisoners (during my journey out of faith). My last book may surprise some: Jesus and John Muir: A Wilderness Novel. Not the guy from Nazareth most are familiar with (he's a young atheist!) and a fresh presentation of Muir as his teacher, in a time-warp, imaginary way. Hope to hear from a few readers.

I really enjoyed Curious Incident and recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it. As for your specific request for non-sf atheist fiction, I'm equally interested in the response.

Death to Humans! Visions of the Apocalypse in Movies and Literature

All things must come to an end, but we humans have an endless fascination with the inevitable. Our September 2010 special issue and our web exclusives explore some of those endings. Writers and filmmakers, of course, have been tackling apocalyptic themes for decades, at times using them to highlight emotional aspects of sacrifice, heroism and dedication, to varying degrees of success.

The staff at Scientific American came up with a list of movies and books that show what human civilization would be like if it got short circuited by some sort of catastrophe. Feel free to add your own selections in the comments section.
