KEEPERS OF THE FAITH
A world dictated by science and logic is presented with an impossibility, humans that can manipulate the fundamental properties of the universe. When faced with god-like beings can reason prevail? Or is the primal nature of fear simply too powerful?
Within prison, Neil Armstrong tells tales of his travels across the cosmos and his visits to extraordinary worlds: worlds of shadow, of love, of inspiration. However, his enthralled friend and jailor Ike suspects a hidden reason behind his prisoner’s incurable wanderlust.
SCIENCE & FICTION.
An Author & A Scientist
Tristan Scott was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and obtained a Ph.D. in the field of molecular medicine. He now lives in Los Angeles and is currently a researcher specializing in the field of gene therapy. When not manipulating genetic material, Tristan has always had an additional passion for writing, which started in high school and later progressed to him taking an extra creative writing course at university while studying towards his Bachelor of Science degree.
Science is an all-consuming career, but Tristan finds time on weekends and evenings to write. He has written a range of unpublished short stories and poems but has published a sci-fi short story entitled An Unintended Future on Nature Futures. His first full-length novel, Vertical City, is published and available for purchase. He is finishing off his second novel, Keepers of the Faith, and a collection of related short stories under the title, Little Worlds. He is currently working on a ‘scientific thriller’ as his next big project.
Tristan has a love for a range of themes with his stories often exploring the cyclical nature of humans, the perils of dual-use technology, the threat of overconsuming our limited resources, while very much advocating for an evidence-based society. Still, dragons and magic are always welcome.
