◊Science Fiction / Christian Futuristic Fiction
Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety. Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

He watched Tracy Grover, interrogation specialist and long-time colleague, do what she did best: drill the subject relentlessly and from every angle until there was a genuine, honest confession. From there, she could get what she really wanted: more information. Colton watched silently from behind the observation window, which looked like a mirror inside the interrogation room, and checked his phone: 4:23 p.m.
Still time, he thought.
“Now, Josh,” Tracy Grover said, folding her hands together in her lap. She glared at him sternly, like a principal addressing a problem child who had been marched into her office. Her long blonde hair was pulled back in a tight pony tail, and her slender cheeks, which just a moment before looked flushed, now appeared suddenly pale. “We technically don’t need your confession. You know that, right? A judge has already deemed you guilty. You’re already in our custody. But by confessing, you’ll be starting with the truth, and from there, we’re hoping you can give us more information. Perhaps there are others you know who may have done what you did? Birds of a feather, right? This is all pretty standard questioning, and you understand the gravity of what you’ve been telling me, but we need to finish this conversation. You understand how serious this is, don’t you?”
“And you understand why you’ve been brought here? We take these actions very seriously.”
“I know,” he said. The guy looked like a nervous wreck.
“We’re going to have to walk through this step by step,” Tracy said. She reached over to the table beside her chair, picked up her tablet, and began to tap away at the illuminated screen. “I need to know exactly what happened.”
“Can’t I have a lawyer?”
“A lawyer?” Tracy smirked. “What year do you think you live in? And you’ve already been found guilty, remember? A lawyer doesn’t apply to situations like this anyway. That law changed decades ago. Now, let’s get back to the matter at hand. I need to know exactly what happened.”
“Are you sure we need to go there?” Josh asked. “I never meant to do anything wrong. I’m sorry I tried to run. I never meant to—”
“But you did try to run, Mr. Mosley, and you realize the neuro-chip in your skull makes it impossible to get away from us. The Neurological Registry of Neurological Transmissions monitors you night and day. You know this, don’t you Mr. Mosley? You haven’t been living under a rock.”
A writer of speculative fiction, he enjoys stories that deal with humanity's inherent need for redemption.
