New Resource for Speculative Fiction

There is a new resource for fans of fantasy, science fiction, and speculative fiction from a Christian perspective. Marcher Lord Press is the brainchild of Jeff Gerke of Where the Map Ends fame. He's a former acquisitions editor who saw a big gap when it came to Christian speculative fiction.

Even though there is a slowly growing publication of spec fic novels in the CBA, Jeff realized that the main audience of Christian fiction was not really interested in fantastical stories.

Thus Marcher Lord Press was born.

The target date for releasing books through MLP isn't until 10/1/2008, but you may be a client for writing one of their books - there is a submission form for interested writers on the site. However, you can sign up now for updates from Jeff here. You can be eligible for prizes, (and if you mention me as a referrer, I can be entered as well!)

Check out the site to learn more about it. One of the cool things is the story for what a marcher lord is.
