A long and dangerous voyage to a strange new world
In the year 2462, Father Guerin voyages to a new world, like the priests who sailed the Atlantic in the 1700s. Joined by three other passengers and the crew of the cargo ship Hopeful, he sets off for the recently colonized planet Xanadu. What kind of person spends half a year cut off from the rest of humanity by the vast distances of interstellar space? What will they make of the over-educated and over-confident priest?
And how will they cope when the space pirates attack?

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
