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.

Chris, I've added your list of writings to the "Books by A|N Members Who are Published Authors" section of this group.

I love "The curious incident of the dog in the night". Reading a mystery from he point of view of an autistic kid was awesome. I also love the other book from the same author, "A spot of bother".

Can you guys recommend some non sci-fi atheist fiction novels?

What did you guys think about "The curious incident of the dog in the night"?
Comment by Chris Highland on August 1, 2010 at 3:12pm
No doubt (smile) my new book, Life After Faith, will not please all non-theists or theists, but I offer it as one former minister's exit from belief to the better way of nature, reason and creative thought. I would welcome any comments from readers.

The Selfish Gene is groundbreaking but it's not really about atheism. Hitchens, Dawkins and Harris are great, but they're among the more strident voices, excellent writers but harsh. I really enjoyed Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus," and of course Bertrand Russell's "Why I am not a Christian" essays. Russell had it right way back in the early part of the last century, and almost everything that's been said since is a restatement of his arguments. All of these books were very influential when I was writing.
