How many Christian fantasy authors are there? How many Christian fantasy books are published? Any clue? If you’re like me before I sought them out, you aren’t familiar with many. How sad.
Christian books are a tiny segment of the publishing industry. Within that small group, fantasy is seems to be on the bottom of the totem pole. The secular world doesn’t want to read them because they’re Christian and Christians don’t want to read them because they’re fantasy. No wonder most of us aren’t aware of these authors—or their books.
A while ago, I began a search for Christian fantasy authors. I had written a young adult Christian fantasy and wanted to find others like me. That required some serious digging. But guess what … they exist! You’re unlikely to find their works in a bookstore, but many are available online.
It’s a tragedy that these books aren’t readily available in bookstores. But, now that I’ve found that these books do exist, I have made it my mission to seek, read and review Christian secular fiction … one book at a time. I will begin posting these reviews on my blog. Sadly, I’m a slow reader, so they won’t occur too often. But here’s my current list:
Prophet by R. J. Larson
Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider by Ellen C. Maze
The Captives by Precarious Yates
The Story in the Stars by Yvonne Anderson
Reality’s Dawn by R. L. Copple
The Duke’s Handmaid by Caprice Hokstad
Anyone care to read along with me? Or, if you know of any good Christian fantasies you would like me to add it to my list to review, comment here or contact me.
