Now Available: Part 13: Et In Luna Pax

Good news on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Announcing part 13, the "final" installment of the great Saga Se Bellis Stellarum:

Et In Luna Pax

which is subtitled "How the Pope Went to the Moon".

(There's really nothing I can add to explain further – you will have to read it to find out what that could possibly mean.)


  1. Got it, read it, enjoyed it!

    An amazing accomplishment, btw. Plenty of people plan long series, but most of them don't get there! And your series is really good stuff all the way through.

  2. THANKS... profound thanks.

    I am very glad you enjoyed it – all of it.

  3. Have just finished this last book, after anxiously awaiting it. I read the whole series and enjoyed it tremendously. The detail, the history, the story lines (did you have this planned out from the beginning or was it a voyage of discovery for you, also?), the characters, the Church woven thru it... all combined to make a very satisfying and enjoyable experience. Thank you and best wishes in getting this out to more people!

  4. to "Unknown":

    (kinda makes one feel like St. Paul in the Areopagus! Hee hee)

    "Satisfying and enjoyable" - WOW - thanks! I am glad you enjoyed it.

    Eventually I may write a little something on the "How"; but in brief the knights and the main event of Part 13 has been brewing since the early 1990s, and it served as the fundamental target. The critical "discovery" was Quayment, brought on due to my experience with Loome, and my request to them for the Martène commentary on the old Roman Pontifical... which scene appears in "Black Hole". (I never did get a copy; I do have the Catalani which was useful; see parts 12 and 13 for hints.)

    Thanks for your kind good wishes! Since you enjoyed it so much, do tell others.
