Overview

It is 2558 AD. Mankind has reached the stars, but only because the alien Stekoni race has given us their technology. For humankind, the Zakkaist Church -- a melding of the three largest monotheistic religions -- rules both politically and religiously. But in the veils between the stars, the voice of an alien God roars, and the coming of a new messiah has been foretold: the Sartius Exori. The Black Beginning. Colin Fairwood, a cynical and horribly scarred man, hears that voice, but he ignores it until a miraculous escape from death leaves him with strange powers and a bitter faith.

"It cost me an entire night's sleep... A mystic novel with a gritty and courageous sense of realism. The ending was absolutely perfect." -- L. Neil Smith, author of 'Tom Paine Maru'

"Complex, intriguing, unfailingly interesting. I recommend it enthusiastically!" -- C. J. Cherryh, award-winning author.

"THE BONES OF GOD is easily the best and most important novel of Stephen Leigh's burgeoning career." -- Mike Resnick, award-winning author.

"This is a fascinating book, thoughtful and thought-provoking." - Sue Thomason, reviewing in "Paperback Inferno"
