Thomas the Proclaimer by Robert Silverberg

"Thomas the Proclaimer"

by Robert Silverberg

Form: Novella

Year: 1972

ID: 1159

Publication history:


Written for an original anthology of stories on a theme suggested by Lester Del Rey: a miraculous event gives mankind certain knowledge of the existence of God. Poul Anderson and Gordon Dickson also contributed. The premise of this novella leads in many directions at once, which seems quite reasonable. It's not surprising that not everyone on Earth is overjoyed at the sudden manifestation of God's existence. The established religions are thrown for a major loop, many search vainly for non-supernatural explanations, many blame Satan, and chaos stalks the land.
