117. Why Should You Build a Fantastical Lending Library? | with L.G. McCary

June 21, 2022

So many books. So little time. And often, so little space. You are mortal, with little control over time and space for your books. How then do you both store and creatively feature the fantastical stories you’ve collected? Lorehaven fans and staff creators have found many methods, and today we’re going to share some of our techniques for building your own fantastical lending library.

L. G. McCaryReintroducing Lorehaven staff creator L.G. McCary

L. G. McCary is an old-school Whovian and a lifelong Trekkie. She has a bachelor’s in psychology which means she knows enough to mess with readers’ heads but not enough to diagnose their problems. She is the wife of an Army chaplain and the homeschooling mom of four rambunctious kids. She writes supernatural and dark science fiction on topics as diverse as artificial intelligence, ghosts, sentient snowmen, and space hotels. Her first novel, That Pale Host, released in October 2021. Her short story, “Rendering,” appears in Havok’s Rebirth anthology.

Concession stand
  • We don’t mean to negate our ongoing support of public libraries.
  • In fact, Christians should get more active and involved in local libraries.
  • This is about choosing a set of books you want to re-read and share with others.
  • Nor do we mean to endorse hoarding. (Check your heart. Get rid of some books.)

Brave Sir Robin in the Lorehaven Guild replied to episode 116:

I was beginning to think that science fiction was going to get short shrift in the podcast … I can’t say where or when the breakout is going to come, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it came out of the community of believers that grew up with modern communications technology AND are as comfortable with Biblical truth as these homeschooled youngsters.

Speaking of science fiction, here’s a topic we’ve been postponing for quite a while, and it’s summarized by a simple question: If we as Christians believe Jesus will come back to judge all people and rule the planet in person, what about any space travelers or colonies at that time? In other words, if our Lord returns to Earth, what happens to people who aren’t on Earth? We’ll explore these possible prophetic conundrums and speculate on some solutions!
