Visionary & Metaphysical Fiction

Any literature (fiction or non-fiction) that explores the abstract ideal of a spiritual world beyond the physical is dealing with metaphysical issues and – whatever the basic faith is, from Christianity to Bahá’í; from Buddhism to Shintoism – arriving at any idea or thought of this metaphysical world requires a certain amount of visionary ability to express that idea in terms of faith or a belief system. The fusion of the many different faiths we have may create a new ideal or tenet, but this fusion is more “visionary and metaphysical” than it is “new age.” There is an urgent need in the world for a fiction category that deals with visionary & metaphysical ideas and concepts. Not everyone always wants to read a non-fiction book about these subjects. Sometimes one wants enjoyment/entertainment as well as spiritual growth and learning. This group is for those books which blend both entertainment and spiritual thought.

Judy Croome Come and explore the new group I've added on Goodreads. You're welcome to add any novels you feel fit in to this new category.


message 2: by Tahlia (new)

Tahlia Newland Good idea Judy. I write metaphysical fiction and I've been looking for some to read.


message 3: by Tui (new)

Tui Allen My book Ripple has been classified as Metaphysical fiction on other websites such as this one:
http://awesomeindies.net/metaphysical...

I believe it is forbidden to put your own book on a list in Goodreads. How do I have it considered for inclusion here?


message 4: by A.F. (new)

A.F. Firebird Oh dear I did not realise it was forbidden to add your own book, sorry. May be it has not worked. If anyone would like to help me out and add it to this list, that would be great. It definately falls into this catagory:

Thanks A.F. Firebird
