Fantastic Journey

Links are alive and kicking, though they appear dim or a different color than blue.

The ocean of fantasy and speculative fiction is vast.

Parents, are you looking for books for a young adult reader that inspires as they entertain? Have you wondered how to find the best clean fantasy adventures for yourself, your children, and your friends? Or where to hunt for the gems? Do you yearn for clean fantasy adventure that isn’t sanitized within an inch of its life? Skip the smut and keep the adventure, the reality.

Dive into the sea of fantasy with us in Fantastic Journey – The Soul of Speculative Fiction and Fantasy Adventure to find what you seek.

Fhe secret of imaginative fiction is vital to our souls.

If we do not dream, if we do not imagine, we begin to die.

But the secret lies farther within.

This fantasy genres guide quotes 70 authors who whirl the reader on a fantastic journey into the imaginative realm of magic and reality and meaning. You can get it here for $0.99.

Discover worlds near and far – unveil the soul of speculative fiction and fantasy adventure and find the real within the imaginary.

A smart, concise, thoughtful look at how imaginative fiction impacts readers on three levels:

  • The spiritual arena
  • The wide world of ideas
  • And the sphere we breathe in

There is deep spiritual meaning in fiction.

Meaning is the soul of every adventure, its central reality.

Every book impacts our spiritual arena, inducts us into the wide world of ideas, and sooner or later translates those ideas into the sphere we breathe in.

The ocean of fantasy is not without its dangers. Wherever there is wealth, there is risk.

If a book’s dark soul is a false gem brought up from the sea of fantasy – we see shades of human evil and shudder. If our jewel of fiction glitters unrealistically bright – without a care – we shrug and say, “meh,” and the fate of that book, pages fluttering in the wind, is to lie forgotten.

But if the story draws light to battle darkness, if its soul mirrors reality, if it calls us to the adventure of truth, the joy of mystery, and the beauty of brave action – then we have won a precious jewel drawn from the sea.

The challenge of the vast sea of books, of the good and evil at work in their real ideas, in their characters’ actions, are before us.

We must choose.

  • How do you tell if a book of speculative fiction is only dark glass, cunningly cut to resemble a real jewel?
  • How do you choose the gems of fantasy and not counterfeit riches?
  • Where can you discover the best imaginative fiction for yourself, your children and your friends, teens to adults?

Find the answers in Fantastic Journey.
