Christian SpecFic

Review: Failstate by John Otte

I’m writing today’s blog post sitting in a third floor suite overlooking a beautiful, pine tree covered mountain. It’s ok to be a little jealous. I’m sure I will be after a few weeks of being back in the Missouri flatland. But for today, I have a beautiful view. My wife and I took turns […]

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

I love really thought-provoking short stories. Bonus points if there’s a creep factor. Think Ray Bradbury or “The Lottery. Teddi Deppner’s The Author Collector doesn’t disappoint. Andy is an author, a not terribly successful one. He has a wife and young son he needs to support. Knowing that being a writer isn’t going to cut it if […]

Review: Reclaiming Shilo Snow

Review: Reclaiming Shilo Snow

  Mary Weber just released Reclaiming Shilo Snow, the sequel The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. One thing I loved about these books are that they’re a duology. It’s a trend I’m excited about.

When I went to the bookstore as a kid, I spent my time pouring over the shelves labeled “Fantasy” and “Science Fiction”. I’d see names like RA Salvatore, Robert Jordan, and Anne McCaffrey. I’m pretty sure I read every Star Wars book that my local library had in stock. And stay with me here, but […]

Review: Just Dumb Enough

Review: Just Dumb Enough

Some things are no brainers. Like plunking down $2.99 for Just Dumb Enough. That’s less than your average Starbucks drink seasonal drink, and this purchase won’t make you fat. Even splurging on the paperback won’t set you back much more than a fast food combo ($7.99) and has no trans fats. Did I mention the […]

Why I write Christian Speculative Fiction

Why I write Christian Speculative Fiction

Guest Blogger: Sarah Addison-Fox Before I explain why I love writing speculative fiction, I feel like I need a disclaimer. I am by no means an expert on the topic. I stumbled into reading spec fiction when I was binge reading Christian books a couple years ago. I started with Donita K. Paul, moved to […]
