Time for one last Christian Sci-fi and Fantasy Blog Tour for 2008. (Wow, I’m only caught up to like, May of ’08. Do we have to rush into ’09 so soon?)
The Lost Genre Guild is a site devoted to promoting speculative fiction that follows a Christian worldview. They have the simplest formula I’ve seen for describing what speculative fiction is:
Entertainment + scriptural framework
It was started by some of the members of the CSFF tour to raise awareness and respect for Christian spec fic according to their “About” page. These folks haven’t just endeavored to write about other works, they are also actively producing their own to try and self-fulfill their mission. The site and group is open for new members to join as well.
Their most ambitious product to date is the self-produced anthology “Light at the Edge of Darkness”. Check out more about it at the link.
My only critique is that they don’t have reviews or apparant support (that I can find on their site) for spec fic produced by mainstream CBA publishers (such as the Dominion trilogy by Robin Parrish through Bethany House Publishers). I admit that I didn’t get to do an exhaustive search of Lost Genre Guild, so maybe I missed something.
It is impressive to find people to see a need and do something about it. I am interested to discover more about their group and works. If you’re a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror and are looking for alternatives, then check out the Lost Genre Guild.
Also see my fellow tourmates below, and we’ll see you on the other side (in 2009, if everyone is in such a rush to get there…)
