I’m stoked to announce my August pick for Site of the Month. Stoked!
Speculative Faith is a site dedicated to readers and writers of “visionary fiction.” And, I love that phrase: visionary fiction.
I’ve been doing my darndest to define speculative fiction and I seem to run into vague and conflicting definitions all over the web.
But it includes fantasy, science fiction, the supernatural, superheroes, dystopian works and the like. It’s a very broad term encompassing much of what I LOVE about literature: the crazy imagination stuff.
It’s also a genre that confuses some. Especially those brave enough to wonder just how these types of imaginings fit into a faith-based worldview.
Speculative Faith has a rotating schedule of five different bloggers examining these issues through the filter of Bible-colored lenses. Time and again I’ve been impressed with their application of Scripture and their kind-hearted encouragement that we examine what we believe about the arts and entertainment.
They are also FABULOUS about replying to blog comments and keeping the conversation alive. It’s a gold mine of valuable information and thought-provoking topics for readers and writers alike.
Stop by, say hello. Tell ’em I said hi!
