Fantasy Monday?


I suppose I could wait until Friday, but I think these important announcements warrant a special day.

First is the return of Speculative Faith, with a new address and a bit of a makeover. We’re happy to be back in business (though some of you may not have known we were away 😉 ) providing news and discussion about speculative fiction (the Speculative part of the name) from a Christian worldview (the Faith part of the name.)

If any of you have links to Spec Faith, please be sure to input the address change, and of course, I invite any others interested in the genre to add the link to your blogroll.

We’re still “in process.” We’ll plan to have a way for you to subscribe to the blog, and we’ll have accounts on Facebook and Twitter. All kinds of ways to keep tabs on speculative fiction.

Look for a post this week from Stephen Burnett about Anne Rice and her latest change of heart. (You did hear about that, didn’t you?)

Today at Spec Faith I cross-posted about the Clive Staples Award (see below). Though the content won’t be new, I invite you to stop by and give your feedback on the new look (and don’t forget, we’re in process).

Speaking of the 2010 Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction, here’s the latest (most of it) from the award site:

Voting begins today!

Please read these instructions carefully.

CSA is not a popularity contest. The award has been established to recognize the work of fiction which readers designate as the previous-year’s best. Consequently, voters must adhere to these basic rules.

  • You MUST have read at least two of the nominations.
  • You may vote only once for a first, second, and third choice.
  • You may not vote for the same book as your second or third option that you voted for as your first choice.
  • Your votes for second and third options may not be for the identical book.
  • You may mark the “none of these” option if you do not have a second or third choice.
  • Voting will close September 1, 2010.
  • Second and third choice options will only be considered if a clear winner is not determined by the first choice vote.

You’ll find the link to the ballot at the end of the award site post.

And if you haven’t read two of the nominations yet, you still have time since voting will continue throughout the month of August.

OK, back to your regular programing tomorrow. 😉
