Fantastical Truth from Lorehaven has begun season 3! As we exit the holidays, we’re echoing another livestream replay from earlier this month. Marian Jacobs and James R. Hannibal join us again, not just to discern the nonsense and nastiness in fantasy stories, but to thank God for the chance to find great stories and receive them with thanksgiving and holiness. That’s our mission at Lorehaven, especially with the Lorehaven Guild now open for fantastical community and monthly book quests, starting this Saturday!
- Heather L. L. Fitzgerald’s novel The Tethered World from Mountain Brook Fire
- T. E. Bradford’s new novel Awakened
- Andrew D. Meredith’s novel Thrice
- See all podcast sponsors
New updates from Lorehaven

Behold the Fantastic Glories Redeeming YA Fantasy
Here’s how we shared this show, livestreamed for Realm Makers last month:
The world has changed. We feel it in the earth. We smell it in the air. It’s no longer positive or neutral, but negative toward Christianity. How can we find the best fantastical stories that reflect gospel goodness, truth, and beauties in these novel worlds? Rejoin Lorehaven’s E. Stephen Burnett and Marian Jacobs as well as James R. Hannibal, thanking God for faithful fiction this year.

Abigail Falanga wrote in reply to our SpecFaith seasonal closure update:
I’m sorry to see Speculative Faith closing down (for now). Ever since I discovered it a couple years ago, I’d enjoyed many articles and series there, and even had thoughts for articles of my own that I hoped to pitch (talking, incidentally, more about fandom than writing).
However, this certainly sounds like the right decision at this time. I’m sure our Great Author has His own plans for the future both of Spec Faith and of all our other endeavors!
Stephen Smith shared this in reply to the Lorehaven Guild announcement:
This is on my calendar–so looking forward to it! This site is an oasis in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Lisa @ Digging for Myrrh loved Shannon Stewart’s article:
Ah, you are so young to be so conversant with truth, Shannon. Kudos for a terrific piece.
Next on Fantastical Truth
Last year at this time, our parent community of Lorehaven went all-digital: new articles every month, podcasts on Tuesdays, reviews on Fridays, plus news updates and other resources to help Christian fans explore fantastical stories for God’s glory. We will survey which stories made the biggest impact on readers, and catch up with the creators who react to your reactions.
Lorehaven explores fantastical stories for God's glory: fantasy, sci-fi, and beyond.
