We are writers who share two passions‚ÄĒa genre and a Savior.

The genre is speculative¬†literature.¬†That¬†‘s the¬†umbrella term that covers fantasy, science fiction, and allegory in all forms: short story, novella, novel, screenplay, and poetry.

The Savior is Christ. That is the faith part.

Genre + Christ:  Speculative Faith

This team blog, Speculative Faith, will offer you our¬†individual perspectives‚ÄĒand we don’t always agree‚ÄĒon any matter that resides in that¬†spacious¬†spot where our faith and our preferred genre¬†blend.

And we’re¬†an idealistic, motivated¬†group:

~~ We believe that there is a diverse and sizable audience hungry for Christian speculative literature.

~~We want to find you.

~~We want you to find us.

~~We want to mobilize a reading and writing community that will impact the future editorial acquisitional decisions of CBA publishing houses. Right now, they are not favorably inclined toward speculative fiction.

~~We want better and more varied and just plain MORE novels from CBA publishing houses in our genre.

~~We intend to promote the good speculative literature out there, works that showcase talent as well as spiritual truth.

Does¬†all that¬†excite you?¬†Had you¬†given up¬†hope of ever finding such novels‚ÄĒand enough of them‚ÄĒto suit your reading needs?

Do you believe this, as we do? ‚ÄĒ¬† Truth and wild imaginings are not incompatible.¬† Space operas, allegories, ¬†Tolkienesque fantasies, hard science fiction tales, science fantasies, hip urban fantasies, magical realism stories, slipstream novels, surreal poetry. . . God can be glorified in these types of creative expressions.

We’re out to blaze trails. Come with us.

Saddle up your dragons. It’s time to fly into the¬†wide and burning sky of¬† Speculative Faith!
