LOST GENRE GUILD - Blog Tour Day 2
Promoting and supporting biblical speculative fiction since 2006
"The Lost Genre Guild's mission is to raise the awareness and respect for Biblical speculative fiction, and to encourage, educate and support the writers of such fiction."
On day two of the Lost Genre Guild Tour I wanted to discuss a few of the book titles and the founder's site. I first heard about the Lost Genre Guild through another member a few months before release of a speculative anthology entitled, Light at the Edge of Darkness. The book contained stories about aliens, time travel, a vengeful angel, ghosts, and bleak tales of the future. Here at last I found other people who enjoyed a good fantasy, science fiction, or horror story. And they were Christian authors. I was hooked.
The next book I heard about from the Lost Genre guild was Flashpoint by founder Frank Creed.
Frank's book reminded me of Bladerunner meets the Bible. In the future churches have moved underground and it's up to the Sandmen to show others a different path for their life. Of course the Sandmen have weapons to defend themselves and protect the innocent, but without the usual bloodbath you've come to expect from a techno-thriller.
Both books told the kind of stories I enjoyed reading. They didn't come across as rehashed Sunday School stories, but they weren't filled with gratuitous voilence or bedroom scenes either.
Lost Genre Guild stories provide a happy medium between the two extremes.
Frank Creed, kindly answered a question about upcoming Lost Genre Guild style books:
As one of the Lost genre Guild founders, would you like to mention any upcoming speculative fiction books you, or other members, will release in the coming months? Any word on a release date for Flashpoint II - War of Attrition? My son and I are looking forward to reading the sequel.
This will take a couple days to answer—I’ve been on a no-mail status for a few weeks now. My own War of attrition and Forever Richard are forthcoming this spring—no dates yet. Terri Main’s Creative Calisthenics and Marcher Lord Press’ new releases are about to pop. How bout I comment with more on this news?
Thanks again, Mr. Creed.
Day three of the Lost Genre Guild Blog brings information about other Guild members, their sites, and books you might also enjoy.
