Welcome to a brand new year! It’s 2016 and this is the Write Stuff!
This year and last year and probably the year before that has been the year of the Geek! Geeks rule! It’s now fashionable to be obsessive about how many decks are on the starship Enterprise, what episode did Dr. Who encounter the Wailing Angels, and who is Wolverine’s stepfather? Dystopian, horror, monster science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, AI stories, and a plethora of other genres have taken the front seat of the mind and our entertainment.
How does all this reflect on the Christian writer or the Christian reader for that matter? With all the speculative fiction out there, is there an ‘appropriate’ way to feel about it? Can a Christian (like me) still profess Christ as Lord and Savior while salivating over the next Alien vs Predator movie? Should a Christian question the possibility of a robot soul? Those “what if” questions — should they be explored?
Join me for this hot of the press episode of the Write Stuff where I talk to author E. Stephen Burnett, speculative fiction extraordinaire and administrator of Speculative Faith. Call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/8203371. Tune In!
