“So, what kind of fiction do you write?”
It’s a simple question I have either a hard or easy time answering, depending on who’s asking.
The easy answer is I write Christian Speculative-fiction for non-Christians. That means I don’t shy away from faith – or sin – so long as they’re organic to the plot. I (try to) avoid gratuitous sermonizing and/or sordid voyeurism for sanctimony or shock effect. I think that makes my work an anomaly in the heap of evangelical offerings. I write for the outsider, so perhaps it’s Spec-Fiction for people who’ve given up on religion but not on God.
My stories tend to have guns, soldiers, explosions, robots, fire-fights, and more guns, which makes it mostly for guys.
So if you’re looking for an inexpensive, manly Christmas gift…
The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it. – Thucydides
