Overview

"That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made" won the 2010 Nebula Award for Best Novelette, awarded by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and and is nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novelette, awarded at the World Science Fiction Convention.

Harry Malan is the president of a Mormon congregation on a station located at the center of the Sun, where humans can interact with "swales" -- giant star-dwelling plasma beings. When Harry finds out about a problem with one of the Mormon swales, he decides he must help, even if it means confronting Leviathan, the largest of the swales.

Editorial Reviews

Lois Tilton
But matters improved quickly, as the characters proved to be reasonable and well-rounded human beings, despite their conflicting viewpoints, who even managed to work together. And the sincere faith of Harry Malan managed to make me sympathize with his religious mission, which is a very hard sale indeed.
Aaron Hughes
My story recommendation for the week is "That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made" by Eric James Stone, from the September 2010 issue of Analog. "That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made" takes a strong SFnal premise and uses it as the framework for an interesting moral dilemma.

Meet the Author

A Hugo and Nebula Award nominee and a winner in the Writers of the Future Contest, Eric James Stone has had stories published in Year's Best SF 15, Analog, Nature, and Kevin J. Anderson's Blood Lite anthologies of humorous horror, among other venues.

One of Eric's earliest memories is of seeing an Apollo moon-shot launch on television. That might explain his fascination with space travel. His father's collection of old science fiction ensured that Eric grew up on a full diet of Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke.

While getting political science degree at Brigham Young University, Eric took some creative writing classes. He wrote several short stories, and even submitted one for publication, but it was rejected and he gave up on creative writing for over ten years.

During those years Eric graduated from Baylor Law School, worked on a congressional campaign, and took a job in Washington, DC, with one of those special interest groups politicians always complain that other politicians are influenced by. He quit the political scene in 1999 to work as a web developer in Utah.

In 2002 he started writing fiction again, and in 2003 he attended Orson Scott Card's Literary Boot Camp. In 2007 Eric got laid off from his day job just in time to go to the Odyssey Writing Workshop. He has since found a new web development job.

In 2009 Eric became an assistant editor for Intergalactic Medicine Show.

Eric lives in Eagle Mountain, Utah. His website can be found at www.ericjamesstone.com.
