Well, after a couple days at the ocean and taking the lonnnggg way home, all I’ve got for you are these musings . . . Yes, I had a marvelous time. Thank you.
Why can’t we label genres what they really are? "Christian Horror" means it’s scary fiction. Not just suspenseful, not even just thrilling. It means there’s some horrific stuff in it, but the Christian label usually means there’s a redemptive theme in the story.
How ‘bout my personal favorite: “Non-traditional Romance”? It simply means it’s not the tried and true sweet little romance. It means the story takes a few chances and tackles romance the way it can often be both in the world and in the Lord. Polar opposites.
And is it “Fantasy”, “Science-Fiction”, “Paranormal”, or “Supernatural”? “Speculative” fiction really doesn’t say much.
Not much today, is it?
Lord Jesus, you're all I'm livin' for.
