This month, the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy tour is taking a look at Terri Main’s ezine, the Wayfarer’s Journal.
Fellow members of the Lost Genre Guild, thus far we’ve managed to get along fairly well for an ultraconservative fundamentalist and a “left-leaning” (as the media always puts it) Christian, though not mainline unless you count the Assemblies of God as mainline. I suppose we have this much in common: we both know what “speaking in tongues” is, and we both like a good speculative novel.
Though, as writers, our audience callings are miles apart: Terri’s more evangelistic and I’m more prophetic. The evangelistic focus being on the lost and the prophetic focus, or discipleship as it’s more frequently called, on calling those who’ve already found Him to repentance. Naturally, we both see a need for more of our own type rather than the other, because that’s the way callings function.
“Soulless” is an introspective little story that does for cloning what I did for abortion in “Frozen Generation,” which is available in Light at the Edge of Darkness (sorry for the plug!) Seriously, if you like stories that delve into Christian bioethics, you’ll love “Soulless.”
“Phobos” is more a psychological treat dealing with a first contact between humans and life on an alien world where both species are afraid of the “aliens.”
