CSFF Tour – The Codebearers Series

This month’s CSFF tour features Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow by the Miller Brothers.

I am impressed in investigating this book, because the Miller Brothers are 30 somethings who are writing books they would have liked to have when they were around 10. Of course, not much was written from a Christian perspective for that age range back then, but there also wasn’t technology to allow said authors to create their own book trailer, rocking web site full of games and networking, and even allow a FREE read of the book online.

I appreciate what they’ve done, as I have boys getting into the age range for this book, and I want this type of work available as part (but not the only part) of what they read.

I didn’t realize there was a free read available, so I don’t have any original content to add. However, why not “borrow” the best of the CSFF tour? I’ve gone through all of the posts as of noonish on 3/18, the third day of the tour, and can recommend some high points to visit. You can see the links to all the participants below.

John Otte gives some critique, and talks about his hopes for Christian speculative fiction.

Fred Warren does the same thing I’m doing, giving a tour overview. His is more clever than mine. Curses, Fred!

Wade Ogletree gets the “Going Overboard Award”, with not 1, not 3, but 6(!) posts about the book. (OK, they’re all great posts!)

Becky Miller, our ringmaster (more in the circus way, rather than Sauronic fashion), always has great thoughts. Link is to March ’09 archives, and look for CSFF Tour or allegory (great post there!)

Val Comer gives a good review of the book, and the opening paragraphs as well. Two for one!

I’ll also highlight new CSFF member Ryan Heart and her coded post. Tricky.

Becky Miller always tracks EVERY post, a daunting task, so you can go to all the posts off of this link.
