Catholic Archbishop tackles sci-fi!

Caught this over at the SFWA website, but Gary K. Wolfe (creator of Roger Rabbit) and John J. Myers (Catholic Archbishop of Newark) were not only childhood (and present day) friends but are also writing a sci-fi novel together. From the SWFA news release:

Determined to recapture the exhilarating science fiction of their youth, not just as it was, but as it should have been, they transport us now to the far reaches of the galaxy, where the mere mention of the interstellar pirate known as Space Vulture strikes fear into every heart and a pioneering settler’s only hope on a hardscrabble colony world is that the dauntless lawman, Marshal Victor Corsaire, will rocket to the rescue

The pulp premise alone would be enough to interest me; but the fascinating creative duo make this a slightly more interesting bit of news. The full press release can be found here.
