BLURB

Father Captain Fitzpatrick of the Holy Order of the New Earth Resistance sat frozen, eyes focused on the blinking lights of the S.T.A. screen. He had one of the damned bugs in his crosshairs, but he knew that if he fired directly at it he would miss. “Two degrees North-North-East, charge Rosary Beam, 90%,” he growled, eyes unmoved from the screen.  Private Johnson, one of the Beta Squad altar boys, looked up in surprise – normally 40% was enough juice to take down a bug – but he knew his place and set to charging the cannon. Johnson was too young for this, but ever since Cardinal General Richie had taken himself out along with the whole College Command, Father Captain Fitzpatrick had lost the luxury of caring. Steady, he thought, steady… Now! Central Chapel Command shook with the force of firing 17 gigatons of compressed photon blast, but the walls held. “Direct hit,” shouted Father Sergeant Dominique from Observation Belfry 3 as bug remains rained down around them. The Chapel echoed with the cheers of the Holy Order, at least what was left of it, and Father Captain Fitzpatrick sank back into his chair, finally able to relax. Maybe there was someone up there after all. He had to believe there was. [Charlie Caplan]
