George R. R. Martin – The Way of Cross and Dragon (1979)

George R. R. Martin‘s short story The Way of Cross and Dragon was first published in the June 1979 issue of Omni magazine.

The Way of Cross and Dragon tells the story of a far-future inquisitor investigating a heresy which venerates Judas Iscariot. But things aren’t quite what they seem.

The story has been reprinted numerous times, I read it in the 1992 collection The Oxford Book of Science Fiction Stories, edited by Tom Shippey.

Have you read it? What did you make of the story? Let me know below in the comment section, or get in touch on Twitter @ShortSFreview.
