Looking for one of the premiere websites on Christian speculative fiction?
Look no further than the Lost Genre Guild, a group of eclectic authors and readers who have banded together to promote Christian Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and yes, Christian Horror.
Here’s a rundown of the features on their expansive website:
- Definition of Christian speculative fiction
- History of the Guild
- Book reviews
- A place to request reviews
- LGG members book list
- Light At The Edge Of Darkness Anthology
- Books For Sale / Promotion
- Story Excerpts
- Author interviews and biographies
- Links to Christian spec-fic media
- Links to important resources
- Mentoring group bulletin board
- AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST … a BLOG, which was not on any of their menus!
Overall, this is an excellent site, and provides a lot of good information for anyone interested in Christian speculative fiction.
In particular, I subscribed to their blog’s email newsletter, and will look forward to updates on the happenings all around the web that they post about.
Suggested Improvements For The Lost Genre Guild:
In the spirit of edification, I have a list of suggestions for the LGG website to improve its effectiveness in promoting Christian Speculative Fiction.
- An overhaul of the page layouts to make them have a consistent look and feel
- An update of the graphics … for instance the “shield” button logo is of a completely different style than their website graphics … the two should be consistent
- The images on the book review page are CD shaped and made me think it had music reviews
- Putting the menu on each and every page to improve navigation
- Putting a link back to the home page as part of the menu
- Making the blog a cornerstone of the site and more heavily promoting it
- There are only 10 books reviewed so far … could use more
- Better fonts in the pdf catalog … it’s hard to read right now
- A page that provides a wider variety of graphic buttons that bloggers can use on their website to help promote the LGG
