Jay Carper's
Science Fiction Writers of Christianity



When I first thought up the contest and this review page I had only heard of two scifi/fantasy writers whose writings included Christian themes. I've discovered a few others since then, but still far too few. I'm certain there must be others, and I would be overwhelmingly pleased if you would email me with their names and works.

I think the two most significant are C.S. Lewis and Stephen Lawhead. They are both unquestionably superior writers and storytellers, but I would like you to tell me just how good (or how bad, if you feel that way), they really are. I'd like to post your reviews of the works of these and other Christian science fiction and fantasy writers. Send your original reviews to me, and I might post them here.

Just for reference, here is a brief bibliography of a few of the science fiction and fantasy works of some great storytellers. Click on the titles to see the reviews.
