|Plot Summary of Gravity Dreams|
|"In Earth's distant future, Tyndel is both teacher and mentor, a staunch devotee to his religious culture. Then a rogue infection of nanotechnology transforms him into a "demon", something more than human and is forced to flee into exile to the more technologically advanced space-faring civilization that his people consider evil. He has the rare talent to become a space pilot and he doesn't expect to encounter a vastly superior being---perhaps God."
Ed Phillips, Resident Scholar
