In this season, when we often forget the birthday boy in rushing to buy each other presents to celebrate Christ’s nativity, I wanted to share with you an announcement posted today fairly close by at one of my husband Adam’s pet projects, which suggests the Perfect Gift for Sci Fi Lovers is Laser & Sword Annual 2008:
Looking for a last minute Christmas present for a lover of super heroes or science fiction? Trying to find something wholesome that will get the teenage boy (or grown man) in your life more interested in reading? Look no further!Â Laser & Sword Annual 2008 contains Issues 1-4, each of this yearâ€™s quarterly serials. This year, stuff your stockings with a yearâ€™s worth of serial fiction at itâ€™s finest in a beautiful 160 page paperback volume.
Meet our three maiden storylines:
* The Sword, Sword Comics owner Jesse Miller seeks to defeat terrorism by uniting the worldâ€™s greatest superheros. Will he learn bad guys masquerade as good guys before the traitor in their midst sends the heroes to their doom?
* Snyder, a juvenile delinquent living in the 78th Year of the Empire, loathes Earthâ€™s dictator while hailing the regimeâ€™s American governor as a hero. Getting caught meting out vigilante justice gets him inducted into the Imperial Army under threat of a noose. Can a double agent get Snyder back on the right track? Will Snyder survive to discover his destiny?
*Lastly, Mild Mannered Janitor Dave Johnson discovers an symbiotic alien and this superfanâ€™s dreams of being a superhero come true with hilarious results. One question haunts: can there be such a thing as a good Symbiot, even if he is a silver cylinder rather than black tar?

Confession: I’ve donned the copy writer hat at Laser & Sword as well my usual assistant editor cap. Please forgive me for the cross-post. Now back to our regularly scheduled program (or should I say our feature presentation?)
Love inÂ Christ,
