131. What If An Airborne Mist Turned Humans Into Zombies? | The Skyworld Series with Morgan L. Busse

September 27, 2022

What if humans who survived an apocalypse were forced to flee into the sky to escape a deadly mist? And what if one sky-diver, working aboard an airship, was hired to find the impossible: a way to eradicate the Mist for good? Of course, it helps little that the Mist is rising and threatening to turn humans into steampunk zombies. That’s the world of Morgan Busse’s Skyworld series that starts with Secrets in the Mist and finishes with Blood Secrets. In this episode, Morgan makes her Fantastical Truth debut.

Ahhh, very nice. Now this is interesting and great to see.

Patrick Kane Abbott also replied to that article:

It will be an interesting shift for readers who are use to fluff/cringe “Christian fiction” to accept characters who are not perfect, do not always make the right decisions, and repeatedly fall (just like how everyone of us actually are). . . .

I think I’m still scarred by my time being a book seller, but from what I gather the big sellers are still more fluffy than anything else.

Our new Monster Month series has begun. During our next few episodes, we’ve scheduled stops at your favorite haunted house for some scary topics. Yet as with count Dracula, it’s not the power of evil but the power of Christ that compels us. That’s why we’re surveying the genre of horror. Then we’re learning how tens of thousands of new readers have discovered the holiness and horror of Dracula. Then we’ll stop by the mad scientist lab, and finally, by somehow popular demand, we’ll try to explore why we have all this Christian curiosity about the Nephilim. This spooky season, welcome to Monster Month.
