CSFF Blog Tour: Lost Genre Guild

This week for the Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour, we are spending a little time introducing people to the LGG or the Lost Genre Guild. At first I wavered on whether or not I might participate in this tour, since I'm not a real big part of the LGG and I do not know much about it. But I figure, even though other people in this tour will have tons more relevant and interesting facts to say about it. I can at least introduce some of my other readers to this realm...

Basically, to my understanding, the LOST GENRE guild is a great group of authors and readers who decided that too many Christian Bookshelves in store are without speculative fiction, containing possibly sci-fi, horror, or just things that are "other" per say. These people have decided to rescue the lost genre and bring it to where it is accessible for people to read as easily as romance or historical.

The places where you can find the LGG and more about it, is their main website. Yahoo group, and their blog. I highly recommend you check them out. They are also over on Shoutlife too.

My son is a huge fan of speculative fiction, and I was hugely pleased that there are Christian authors who are making this genre available to readers. :) Thanks Margaret for giving us theses participant links!

Woo-hoo--we're a 'realm'! There are things in this life to which we ought to aspire, and realm-ness is one of them.

Thank you for posting on this tour. When spec-fic outsells romance in Christian bookstores, it's peeps like us who will jump on the bed!

Thanks very much for the support! Bed-jumping day may be sooner than we dare to hope :)
