A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN

Battlestar Galactica is partly Mormon. Sci-fi is a big part of Mormon. Do you know the planet Kolob?

When we immigrated to America, and my family converted to Mormonism, I had a hankering for sci-fi.

Here is a microfiction about Battlestar Galactica and Mormonism in high school, in the mid 80s, from my novel Never Mind the Beasts, forthcoming from Dostoyevsky Wannabe in May 2020. It is called “A Portrait of the Artist as Young Man.”
