The God Engines is a science fiction novella by John Scalzi published in 2009.[1] It was nominated for the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Novella.

Synopsis[edit]

The story takes place in a universe where space travel is accomplished by chaining intelligent, human-like creatures called gods to a spacecraft and torturing them to drive the ship. The people are ruled by an organization called the Bishopry Militant, who worship a powerful being. Captain Ean Tephe is completely faithful to the Bishopry, but his faith comes under test when he is assigned a secret mission which his ship's god seems to have a keen interest in.
