1. This is very exciting, and I hope this endeavor meets with massive success.

    From what I can see, this isn’t about “edginess” per se; it’s about creating a space where Christian authors are free to be true to the stories they want to tell. And that’s something the world sorely needs.

    • At the risk of spoilage, I’ve begun reading The Crossover Alliance’s first anthology collection. Some of the short stories did not appeal to me, and/or were part of larger story-universes with which I had no familiarity. However, three in particular have stood out–one of which adapts in freakish fashion those dire warnings in Proverbs about fornication. I ended that one shaking. And running in the right direction.

        Whoops, this was meant to be in response to Austin’s comment 🙂

      • Thank you for those encouraging words about that story. That particular story has received quite a bit of negative feedback. And I get it. It’s disgusting. I wouldn’t want my mom reading it. But that’s kind of the point of those proverbs… to show how damaging adultery really is.

        Thanks so much!

      Right. Edginess is not the focus, and it really is a relative term, but now there is a place for readers and writers who are tired of tip-toeing around.

What do you think?
