Not long ago we talked about church libraries and how these resources can help Christians find the best books, including (if not now, then in the future) Christian-made fantastical fiction. What then about public libraries? How can Christians best discern and enjoy this resource? We’re speaking with a public library director who also happens to be a prolific Christian novelist of sci-fi, fantasy, steampunk, paranormal suspense, and beyond: Steve Rzasa. He is the first Steve for a new saga of epic episodes we’re assembling for September.

Introducing library director and novelist Steve Rzasa
Steve Rzasa doesn’t slay monsters, but he defeats word count goals and vanquishes overdue books. He’s the author of many novels of science-fiction and fantasy, including the award-winning tales Broken Sight, Mercury on Guard, and Mercury at Risk. When he’s not writing, he’s running a library in Wyoming. Find his stories at SteveRzasa.com.

Abigail shared encouragement about ep. 127, about the Code of Honor:
Good [episode]. Going over the Code of Honor was both helpful and insightful—not groundbreaking perhaps, but interesting to go over why things are done how they are around here. . . . Lots of good thoughts about how to read and discuss courteously as fans!
