A list of Biblical spec-fic e-zines

Postby frankcreed » 2011 01 22 1320

I'm putting together a blog article with a master list of Biblical spec-fic e-zines. If any of you know of one that's not on this list, please let me know. Thanks!

Any Speculative fiction

Specialized science fiction.

Wikkipedia has this to say about Ray Gun Revival’s space-opera genre . . .
“Space opera is a subgenre of speculative fiction that emphasizes romantic, often melodramatic adventure, set mainly or entirely in outer space, generally involving conflict between opponents possessing advanced technologies and abilities.”

Ray Gun Revival does not publish anything overtly Christian. They specialize in qualitative pre-evangelistic fiction. The editor took time to comment on the matter . . .
“Frank, to be clear, RGR does not publish overt Biblical spec-fic, but there's a good reason for that. Because our audience are secular sci-fi fans who would otherwise not darken the door of a church or stick around for blatantly Christian stories, we choose to look for stories with a clear moral message such as is common in the clear black and white vibe of space opera and golden age
sci-fi / pulp adventure stories. I think of our stuff as pre-evangelistic. It is true that many of us are sympathetic to Biblical spec-fic, but it would be a misnomer to say that RGR is typified by that.

“We know our audience, and we're taking the harder road of trying to get a first toe-hold with that audience without driving them off.”~Johne Cook, Overlord of RGR.
