For many months now, The Crossover Alliance has been an online community in existence to cultivate the relationship between readers and writers of edgy Christian speculative fiction – in general terms, science fiction/fantasy/horror/supernatural fiction with Christian themes and edgy content, such as sexual themes, language, drug use, and violence. The term ‘edgy’ doesn’t only encompass this type of content though – it can also be applied to certain situations/themes/character deficiencies that are not typically found or ‘allowed’ in conservative Christian fiction. Edgy Christian speculative fiction crosses the lines of both secular fiction and Christian fiction, and creates a new breed – not just to appeal to a wider audience, but also to shed light on realistic, entertaining writing that has the power to appeal to both Christians and non-Christians alike.
The Crossover Alliance is now proud to announce a call for submissions for its first ever anthology – a collection of short written pieces that represent edgy Christian speculative fiction. The Crossover Alliance Anthology will be sold as a not-for-profit collection of stories with the intent of bringing attention to this unique genre of fiction and its authors.
The Crossover Alliance Anthology will be published Summer 2014 in ebook (digital) format for various readers including Kindle, Nook, and the Sony Reader, and in paperback via Createspace. Entries will be accepted until Saturday, March 15th, 2014. The tentative release date for the anthology will be Tuesday, June 24th.
