Tonight on the Write Stuff — Seekers of Earth with Kyle Pratt

Lucas Baldwin, the young son of a powerful lord, is on his first deep space training mission. Advancing through a captured facility he encounters a lunatic girl about his age. Only later does he realize that the girl, Rachel, is speaking English, a long dead language. Rachel talks of an Earth still in existence and more advanced than the horse-and-buggy world that had supposedly been destroyed.

All his life Lucas has been taught that more than three hundred years ago, pre-industrial Earth was destroyed by the advancing Valac hegemony. The Mage, a benevolent and highly-advanced race, were able to save a few thousand people. These surviving humans are offered sophisticated technology in return for their help in the fight against the Valac.

Humans have become the guardians of the Mage. But now Lucas wonders if the history he has been taught is all a lie—but such thoughts are treason.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Medieval Mars with Travis Perry — *REBROADCAST*

marsA future terraformed Mars, where civilization crashed back into a Medieval Era. Christian Knights called “riders” patrol the Pilgrim Road from Olympus to New San Diego, on the Chryse Sea. The technological past is known as the “Age of Magic” and only a handful of people understand how the remaining ancient devices really work. Lighter gravity in dense air makes flying dragons and bird riders a reality; alloys of the past make “magic” swords; and masters of ancient knowledge wield wizard-like power.

Nine authors spin tales in this unique story world, one which combines elements of science fiction and high fantasy.

The Untold Podcast exists to engage the culture’s imagination through speculative fiction from a Christian worldview. At the Untold Podcast we want to recapture the power of story and use the weirder genres to do it. Science fiction, fantasy, horror and supernatural stories serve as metaphors for our lives. The distant star systems, the shining knights, the abominable yetis, and the ghosts remind us of our own struggles, triumphs and losses.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Speculative Faith with E. Stephen Burnett

The New Write Stuff Radio BannerWelcome to a brand new year! It’s 2016 and this is the Write Stuff!

SPECULATIVE FAITH

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!

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Interview with Guy Stanton III

Fantasy and science fiction are wonderful genres of the speculative fiction realm. Within the depths of the writer’s imagination, we can travel to worlds unknown, see and experience strange things of the future, and immerse ourselves with heroes and characters that are memorable. Some have said that fantasy and sci-fi contain some of the best stories.

Join me for this episode of the Write Stuff as I chat with one such author, Guy Stanton III who has a number of books and series under his belt as we get a chance to peel back the veil and find out what makes him tick. His imagination, as one reviewer put it, “…range from James Bond action, to Conan the Barbarian, to speculation about Atlantis, to westerns, to western Science fiction a la Louis Lamour. They are wonderful, escapist fiction done in holiness and fantastic reality.”

I pray for inspiration, and I enjoy what I have written just as I hope that others will as well. I’m a quiet man on the outside, but writing has become the playground of my soul to express itself in the grandeur of the created worlds and tales that I have been fortunate enough to dream of. The best way to find out more about me is to read my books. I write from the heart and I express both my shortcomings and my triumphs. I like to think of my writing as ‘Reality Fiction’. I tell it like I see it. Life is short and the troubles many, but with faith in Jesus Christ all things have become possible to me. I may write ‘make believe’, but I strive to live out what I write. I enjoy my work and I hope you do too. Have a blessed time reading my imaginative thoughts.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Man and Machine: How Wide the Divide with Frank Creed

It’s the stuff of sci-fi — when man and machine combine so perfectly it creates a whole new being – a cybernetic organism where the artificial implants and the natural impulses fight for dominance. This is when speculative fiction really comes to play as we express ideas and thought about this unique quality of man’s intelligence and the machines we create to serve us.

In today’s world, we see an increasing dependence on technology and machinery to make our lives easier, our work faster, our interactions more spontaneous, and increase the quality of our lives. From pacemakers, to prosthetic limbs, and chips to be implanted in us to track us, one has to wonder how wide is the divide between man and machine?

Will this dependence affect our free will? Can we eventually ‘turn off’ the sectors in our brain to stop us from making bad choices? If we want our children to have certain color eyes, we can manipulate the genes to do that and come with the child of our design. With all these possibilities, how will it affect our thoughts on faith, morals, and values? Will we be overridden by the machine someday and…”sin no more?”

My name is Taran Collins. I take pen to paper to let anyone who follows after me a warning. If you come after me you can expect trouble. I don’t know of what kind per se, but……..well let’s just leave it at that. You’ve been warned.

Regards, Taran Collins

P.S. I’m not coming back. That much I am sure of. My story isn’t an easy one, but my hope is that my fortune will change, Godwilling.

The town of Orlaca wasn’t a thriving place. Situated at the base of a mountain in the northern region of Arizona it didn’t have much going for it other than scenic views and the wistful dreams of the few who called it home. Built as a boom town before the Civil War by those in search of gold, it later lost its luster when gold became hard to find. Unknown to the latest people to come to this remote stretch of land was that of the oral history of the Native Americans , who’d called it home for far longer. To them it was a sacred land. A place where wind and fire met and became one.

Fire Wind is the beginning of a series of western sci-fi novels that feature adventure, action, and faith. Christian Speculative Fiction – learn to love it!
