As a member of the Lost Genre Guild (LGG), I am more than a little excited to feature this wonderful group for our CSFF blog tour.
WHAT IS THE LOST GENRE GUILD?
The LGG is a community of Christians who are writers/editors/agents/artists/fans/ of Christian speculative fiction.
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN SPECULATIVE FICTION?
Science fiction, fantasy, supernatural thriller, and all the resulting sub-genres as told through a Biblical worldview.

WHY FORM SUCH A GROUP?
Here's the meat of the matter. The Lost Genre Guild has taken the lead in addressing the vacuum of Christian speculative fiction on the shelves of Christian bookstores. In the secular publishing realm, speculative fiction has a huge following of fans, and their are a dozen bookshelves chalk full of sci-fi, fantasy, and supernatural thrillers. In the Christian bookstore, those genres are usually isolated to a single row on a shelf...if your fortunate, maybe an entire shelf.
The group was formed by founder Frank Creed to confront this issue by way of force. We are a strong, passionate group, and are numbers continue to grow. There are millions and millions of Christian readers who have given up on finding any good Christian speculative fiction in their local Christian bookstores, but the LGG aims to change this. Our voice is loud and passionate, and our ideas are a never ending flow. Already we've won victories, but were not stopping after a few successful battles, were aim'n to win this thing.
If you want to see this victory come, join up, fight. Check out the Lost Genre Guild Blog for continual updates on what's happening.
There are tons and tons of resources for both fans and writers of Christian speculative fiction. In the sidebar of this blog you'll find lots of cool links...check them out.
And DEFINITELY check out these fellow CSFF blog tour member sites...they'll have lots more to say about the Lost Genre Guild, and about Christian speculative fiction!
