I hope that I can open people’s eyes to see the ramifications of religious fanaticism and the dangers of religions that hide behind the skirts of faith.
Hinesville, GA (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Gerald Cislon spent all of his working life in service to the United States. Cislon realized that his life calling was in the military after being drafted into the Army during Vietnam.
Cislon shares experiences from over 37 years of service, 20 in the military and more than 17 in the government civilian sector, in his latest fictional thriller, “Gander” (published by Xlibris). The story is fiction, Cislon says, because he could never talk openly about his experiences while in federal and military service.
“I used to go home on leave and visit with old friends who talked about bowling leagues and Disney World,” Cislon says. “They couldn’t comprehend what I I tried to tell them about where I’ve been and what I’ve done. So now, in my retirement years, I decided to write about my journey in an entertaining and fictional sense.”
Gander is set in the 1980’s in a world that is relatively calm and stable. However, that peace is shattered by a horrible act of terrorism with ramifications that reach across the globe. Soon, one man is sent on a mission to stop this terrorist cell before its religious fanaticism paves a bloody road to international conflict.
The end result, Cislon says, is a book that showcases the conflict between current social, theological and political themes.
“The themes in this book are real and there are men and women in our military who are out there everyday living them,” Cislon says. “I hope that I can open people’s eyes to see the ramifications of religious fanaticism and the dangers of religions that hide behind the skirts of faith.”
