I’m in the Reaction Chamber with author Nathan James Norman, author of the sci-fi/fantasy novel “Untold” and contributor to “The Least of These”. Norman speaks with me about his novel, the associated full-cast audio drama through Paeter Frandsen’s Spirit Blade Underground Alliance, and a bit about who he is and where he comes from. We get into the power of story to educate and change lives. We approach literature, fantasy, and sci-fi from a Christian perspective, and touch on themes of salvation and orthodoxy, the promise of trouble in this world, and the nature of God. Plus a glimpse at the internal mythology of the Untold universe.
This weekend sees the release of the new Benefit book from Critical Press Media: “Water is Life”.
Author Deborah Caligiuri joins me on the show to provide inspiration for gifts, and talk about the very personal experiences that formed the inspiration for her story in the anthology.
John Wilkerson has been Podcasting for Water all year long, and Critical Press Media is pleased to come alongside him in this endeavor!
Spam isn’t the only thing to fear from your email. Author, blogger, and podcaster Derek Gilbert joins me in the reaction chamber to discuss his novel The God Conspiracy.
Gilbert is a former radio personality who, accompanied by wife Sharon, examines the political and cultural landscape through the lens of scripture. Derek and Sharon Gilbert post regular articles on their individual blog sites: Weapon of Mass Distraction, and Welcome to the Mind of a Writer. They also host a forum, news articles, and the P.I.D. Radio podcast from a joint website: PID Radio.
Big things in the wind for the show and the web site. Not just here, either. Get a great deal on Spirit Blade while you can over at The Spirit Blade Underground. In celebration of the season and the coming changes, I’m giving away comic book grab bags to all those who write and ask. Just email your name and address for a Christmas gift from me to you. I said on the show it was going to the end of the year, but I’ve got a set number of these marked out, so the offer is good while supplies last. Gifting practices are the topic today, along with randomness from my wife, Petra. So grab a cup of cocoa and have fun with us!
