This month, the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour’s book selection backed out, so instead we’re sharing our favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy Titles. Mine, in particular order, are:
By Darkness Hid (Blood of Kings, book 1) by Jill Williamson
This is her title up for the Clive Staples Award and has already won a much deserved Christy Award. Way to go, Jill!
Legendary Space Pilgrims by Grace Bridges
Her new release from Splashdown Books. I’ve only read it as I critqued/edited it in it’s rougher form, but this is hands down my favorite Bridges title. The mindwipes are scary, how they’re overcome by the Voice’s words is awesome cool, and I appreciate the emotions she enthused into the book. Oh, the mindwipes steal the memories of the slaves of the ever-cloudy planet Monday whenever they succumb to their human emotions that might get in the way of profit/production and inspire them to seek freedom from those who control every aspect of their lives, even forcing women sent to “repro” into free prostitution until they conceive and taking the children away from the mothers at very young ages.
One of these days, I need to get a hold of a print copy and read the final product. Lol.
Caprice Hockstad’s re-release,The Duke’s Handmaid, is another favorite, and I’m glad Splashdown picked her up, because she deserves the wider audience. This one also deals with social justice, ironically a fairly positive portrayal of slavery, as a thought provoking, semi-allegorical reflection on Christian service and humility.
Lastly, Jill’s latest release, To Darkness Fled (Blood of Kings, book 2). I devoured this 500 page tomb in a single weekend. Jill, finish writing book three already so I can talk my husband into buying it! LOL. One of these days, I’m sure CSFF will tour this one. I’ll re-read and review it then.
Grace, Caprice, not bad to be sandwiched between a Christie winner, eh?
You know, I noticed all four deal with issues of social justice/slavery in some regards, and it occurs to me a theme I love to read about is one I also like to write, too. Shocker.

Oooh! Thank you, you honey! I bet you’ll like the final version even better.
Seems funny everyone naming their “favourite Bridges title” when I only have two! hehe.
Andrea, Sounds like some great suggestions. I’m still trying to finish my existing reading stack before starting on more, but I enjoyed By Darkness Hid and enjoyed Grace Bridges’ near-future ebook.
You’re welcome, Grace. I was including your unpublished titles.
That just means that ALL your titles are favorites among readers.
Way to go!
