"I believe that speculative fiction - science fiction in particular - is the last American refuge of religious literature. Real religious literature, I think, explores the nature of the universe and discovers the purpose behind it." (Orson Scott Card, from his Introduction)
This fourth volume in Orson Scott Card's five-volume anthology of short stories features six tales with religious and spiritual themes, exploring the mysteries of ritual, sacrifice, faith, and death. Discover why immortal beings seek mortal gods, witness the consequences of a vengeful spirit, enter behind the scenes of the lives of television faith healers, and more.
Stories include: "Mortal Gods", "Saving Grace", "Eye for Eye", "St. Amy's Tale", "Kingsmeat", and "Holy".
In a series of introductions and afterwords, Card offers background commentaries for each story.
"One of the genre's most convincing storytellers. An important volume." (Library Journal)
"Definitive....A series of introductions and afterwords offering Card's thoughts on his life and his writing are as absorbing as the stories." (Publishers Weekly)
