Eli Copper and the Lion Runner by Niels Balzer | Indie Sci-fi and Fantasy
Eli Copper is a man disenchanted with his existence. The good life has rejected him and Eli looks for the reasons at the bottom of a bottle. He can't find them. Misery, so far, has been his best friend. His career as an intelligence officer for the U.S. Army has taken him everywhere, yet nowhere he's wanted to stay. After surviving an airplane crash, Eli is confronted by a mysterious priest seeking his help to save humanity. In return, Eli receives powers beyond human comprehension. But has Eli finally gone insane? He doesn't know – and he doesn't care.
