CSFF Blog Tour – The Shadow and Night, Day 1

While the CSFF February tour is featuring The Shadow and Night, I want to include information about author Chris Walley.

For starters, he is one of the contributors at the Christian science fiction and fantasy team blog, Speculative Faith. You can see all of his posts, with topics ranging from fantasy and theology to a discussion of Phillip Pullman, by clicking on this link.

For another, Chris is a Brit (which may explain why he’s not been in the bookstore nearest you to sign autographs 😉 ), a Ph.D, a geologist, a husband, a father, a teacher, an occasional preacher. And then there’s that writing thing.

Under the pseudonym John Haworth, Chris published two thrillers, Heart of Stone and Rock of Refuge (why is it authors choose to write under a different name?) Some years later, he turned to science fiction and wrote The Lamb among the Stars series.

The first two books were published in the UK, then picked up by Tyndale. Two years after the books came out in paperback, the publisher decided to produce the entire series in hardback. Consequently, the first two books were repackaged under one title, the book we are featuring, The Shadow and Night.

Later that year (2006), the second hardback volume, The Dark Foundations, came out. The final novel in the trilogy (formerly the quartet), The Infinite Day, is coming out later this year. Which is especially good news for readers who hate to wait in between series.

From now through Wednesday, there will be discussion about Chris’s work, and possible about his theology. Could get interesting, but then CSFF isn’t necessarily known for it’s uneventful tours. 😉

Take time this week to see what others have to say about this adult science fiction:
