How can you make fantasy, sci-fi, and other fantastical novels even better?

Answer: share this joy with other people, starting with God’s family.

Lorehaven magazine launches its debut issue this spring.

We’ll help Christian fans find truth in fantastic stories, with novel flash reviews, event updates, articles, devotionals, and beyond.

But Lorehaven will serve more than a magazine.

We’re also starting a network of book clubs—in churches, schools, and anywhere else God’s people want to explore amazing stories together.

Watch for updates on how you can find (or even start) a club yourself. For book club leaders, we’ll make you a Lorehaven Book Club insider. You’ll get tutorials on how to lead your club, recruit members, ask great questions, and of course, find the best Christian-made, fantastic novels to explore.

All for free—and all for the mission of enjoying these fantastical stories.

But if you want to join a book club even sooner, and if you happen to live in or near the Austin or Central Texas area, then you can join the flagship Lorehaven Book Club starting this February.

With help from my wife, longtime fantasy and sci-fi fan Lacy Burnett, we’re hosting this club at Southern Hills Baptist Church in Round Rock, Texas (north of Austin).

We’ll explore Firebird, a science fiction novel from Kathy Tyers that asks:

What if a woman of royalty, resigned to die for her planet’s gods, was captured by her enemies in a world where Jesus hasn’t come?

We’ll meet every Saturday in February at the church from 11 a.m. to noon.

To join us, you can just show up. Or reply to this email to ask more. We’ll put you on a special list to get updates about this book club. Also, you can read more about Firebird at the Lorehaven Library, and find links to buy the book in digital or paperback.

We can’t wait to explore Firebird and other novels with you this year.
