Light at the Edge of Darkness,
compiled by Cynthia MacKinnon
Bein somewhat new to speculative fiction I was anxious to see what it was all about. Boy was I ever pleasantly surprised. I guess this isn't for everyone, but it's just fantanstic. Cynthia MacKinnon has taken great pains to chose 28 of the most powerful stories from such writers as A.P. Fuchs, Frank Creed, Daniel I. Weaver, Deborah C. Smith and more to bring together a true gathering of the masters, at least as far as Christian speculative fiction goes. There is horror, humor, sci-fi, fantasy, and more. There's one story in there that will make you think twice about the healing of the blind man in the Bible. I have truly found this an amazing book and recommend it to all people, whether or not this is "their thing". It just may help get them out of that spiritual box so God can do His thing. That's one of the things I love about this book. Cynthia has retooled this work so that different subgenres are mixed all together rather than being all clumped together. I like that. Also she says she has added a table of contents so that readers can go right to the kind of writing that appeals to them without having to do a "hit or miss" reading of the book. This is an excellent addition to an already excellent book.
