Christian Cyberpunk Novelist to Speak

Award-winning Christian Cyberpunk author Frank Creed will be appearing in Second Life, Tuesday, January 20 at 7 p.m. For Second Life residents the direct link to the location is http://slurl.com/secondlife/North%20Bound%20Marina/226/25/24

This will be an informal discussion in which Creed will share about his writing, his life and the state of Christian speculative fiction. Questions will be entertained by Creed. Afterwards, plans include virtual surfing and socializing. Creed is the founder of the Lost Genre Guild, a group of writers, editors and publishers of different types of speculative fiction with a Christian worldview. 

“Christians own the copyright to demons and angels and spiritual warfare,” notes Creed. “Yet, the bookshelves of Christian bookstores are almost totally devoid of speculative fiction except for some fairly sanitized young adult fantasies. Nevertheless, there is a small, but growing, group of writers and independent publishers using modern technology to make quality Christian speculative fiction available.”

Creed is the author of Flashpoint and War of Attrition, both published by Writer’s Café Press. Set in a future where fundamentalist Christians are considered terrorists, these books follow the exploits of a group of supernaturally cyber-enhanced resistance fighters using nonlethal weapons in an attempt to protect members of the underground church from the “Neros” or agents of the government seeking to crush the resistance and “re-educate” their members. 

“I guess I created the first Christian Cyberpunk novel identified as such,” says Creed. “There was a series of books published in the 1990’s which might qualify as the first, but they were never marketed as cyberpunk.”

In addition to writing the novels, Creed also helped co-author a role playing game based on the stories.  “I’m a gamer from way back. So, it was
only natural for me to want to create an RPG where my readers could enter the world of The Underground, ” Creed explains.

Flashpoint has received critical acclaim and won several awards including: Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year (Elfwood 2006), CFRB Best Novel Toured Award (2007), finalist for the Pluto Award for the Best Science Fiction Novel Reviewed, and was nominated for the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Clive Staples award. “Jesus understood the power of the story to communicate in his world. We are creating the parables of a new generation,” says Creed.
