I woke up one morning and discovered that my genre was gone.
This month on the Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour, we are featuring the website, The Lost Genre Guild. I notice the guild's home page has a number of questions on it. I will assume these aren't rhetorical and attempt to answer them:
WE OWN THE COPYRIGHT TO FALLEN-ANGELS, RIGHT?
I dunno, do you? I assumed Walter Dean Meyers owned the copyright to Fallen Angels.
CAN YOU NAME A SINGLE CHRISTIAN HORROR TITLE?
Most anything by Frank Peretti. I'm quite fond of The Oath.
CHRISTIAN SCI-FI IS CONSIDERED A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS.
By whom? A Christian writes fiction about science--where's the contradiction there? Some Creationists do it for a living. (Ooh! Cheap rimshot!)
Okay, okay, enough of that. The Lost Genre Guild, according to its "About" page, was originally a writers' group founded by Frank Creed and Daniel I. Weaver. The group's stated purpose is to "raise the respect and awareness" for what they call "Biblical speculative fiction." And if you want to know what that is, you can find out on this page, where they also have a list of subgenres in case you want to brush up on terms like "cyberpunk," "dystopia," "dark fantasy," and so forth. Their forum page has, among other things, a section offering writing advice. I particularly like the discussion of writer's block. That might help me get done all these half-finished scripts over here. And there's a blog.
