More on the Lost Genre Guild

Trying to define Christian speculative fiction is sometimes like trying to herd chickens or sweep water, but The Lost Genre Guild has made a strong effort. Take a look at their definition here.

Check out their examples in the left column. They've done a nice job enlarging the boundaries for Christian speculative fiction to include topics I hadn't thought of. How about space opera? Or cyberpunk?

Their list of featured books include some recent offerings that are excellent, such as Shade and Never Ceese. Take a look.

Launching The Lost Genre Guild

The Lost Genre Guild is a group of artists banding together to promote the lost genre of Christian speculative fiction. Take a look at their website.

I love this statement on their website: "Seeing as God monopolized creativity an infinity ago...." The link between God and creativity is often overlooked, even by Christians. How can we limit creativity?

The Lost Genre Guild is seeking to promote Christian speculative fiction.

The Christian Science Fiction/Fantasy group is touring the Lost Genre Guild this week. Take a look at what others have written about this new endeavor:
