Is it me or does it seem that end time fiction are few and far between?


message 2: by Anne (new)

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments I agree, at least Christian type. I love End Times stuff, mainly because I believe we may be living close to that time in history. If you haven't read any of Joel C. Rosenberg, you might try his books.

Ah sorry Anne for not being clear. Yes I did mean of the Christian genre.

I've read one or two of Mr. Rosenberg's books, but they just don't grab me.

I wish I had the talent of writing. I would be churning them out. If non-christians can churn out their junk, how is it Christains can't do the same?

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments So true. I am working on a book now whichtakes place in WWII and is sort of tied in with my book whichis just published. if I live long enough, I though about possible making it a trilogy with the 3rd book during end times. Oh, well, it depends on what the Lord has in store for me.

Well Anne let's pray that the Lord blesses you with a long, healthy, productive life. We need more

LadyCalico Definitely few and far between. I can't understand it myself. Looking at the Christian Fiction section of Walmart and my two local bookstores, I find the selection seems to be loaded with, and almost limited to, the same type of Stepford wife wannabe with a secret from her past meets Mr. Perfect Stepford and they overcome some obstacle to get together and have Stepford babies. When a formula sell, I guess that's what authors write and publishers print, to go for the safely guaranteed buck. I think Anne is right--if you want to read something different, you have to write it yourself.


message 7: by Anne (new)

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments Oh, I disagree. I have found Christian thrillers, Christian mysteries and many Christian books. I also love historical and biblical history books. I have gone to a Christian book website(won't mention which one) and check out books that interest me. Then I go to the library and even in our medium sized liberal college town, they have a surprisingly large selection of Christian books. My new book has some suspense, is historical and a romance.

Lola, I have to agree with you. That's mostly what I tend to see at my Borders as well. And frankly I have no interest in them.

I have done the Amazon buying, but you have to be very careful here with your choices. Some reviews are rave reivews and you then by the book and go - "huh?" You have to be kidding me..."


message 9: by LadyCalico (last edited Sep 05, 2009 03:02PM) (new)

LadyCalico Yeah, that's the nice thing about Goodreads reviews--you can click onto the reviewer's profile page and see how their taste tends to run, especially if they review other books that you've read and hate/love. If I went by the 5-star ratings, I'd end up with nothing but Kingsbury krap and other Holy Harlequin books--and weeping with agony in my beer. Wonder when Wendy Alec's next book is coming out--at the rate she's going I am going to have to finish that series from the other side of the pearlie gates.

LOL - you are funny.

But I know what you mean about the Kingsbury stuff. I would want to gnaw my arm off. If I had to be subjected to that.

I was wondering the same about Wendy's 3rd book. Isn't it supposed to be late this year?



message 11: by Anthony (new)

Anthony | 74 comments Mod
I just checked Wendy's website - and all it says about the book

coming soon....

hmmmm I wonder what's her idea of soon....

Oh really?????? I thought it was this year.

Well shes running rather late then


message 14: by Tom (new)

Tom Fowler (stuckintraffic2) | 3 comments Check out Nephilim, the first book of a trilogy. Though not specifically end times fiction, this trilogy does focus on where evil is headed, and are great reads. I really wish the author would put out something new as I enjoyed all 3 of these very much.
Nephilim The Truth Is Here

I've actually read all three already :-). But thanks for the suggestion


message 16: by Anne (new)

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments Anthony, I forgot a group of books by Michael D. O'brien that I read quite a while back. They definitely fall under the term apocalyptic. The first four books were the series I read-in his list.

Anne, I've never heard of this author. Is this who you are referring to?

Father Elijah: Eine Apokalypse by Obrien, Michael D. Dtsch. V. Gaby Kuby; O'brien, Michael D.;



message 18: by Anne (new)

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments Yes, except not in German-LOL. If you key in Michael D. O'Brien here on GR, when you pull up his book page, the ones I read are the first four. I don't remember the order, so hopefully the explanation will give you more about them and the correct order. It has been years, and i came across his name and books on B&N the other day and remembered them.

message 29: by Anne (new)

Anne (spartandax) | 17 comments Thanks for the freebies. I have the "Chosen" have not read it yet, but due to Alexandra's post, plan to move it up to next on my list. And Alexandra, I feel we are truly in those days now and will soon be asked to stand for God. I pray every night for the strength to be faithful. Evil is everywhere, from the White House on down and it is frightening.

What do you mean evil is everywhere and you find it frightening? Evil has always been everywhere, but there's no need to fear.


message 31: by Mark (new)

Mark Green | 1 comments Here is a nice upbeat series of endtime fiction, using prophecies from the Bible noted in the bibliography. In case the link doesn't work, it is called Prologue - An End-Times Tale by Ruach Sheni:

http://www.amazon.com/Prologue-An-End...

Instead of the empty, hopeless, Devil-In-Charge theme of most such books, this one follows believers and their successes in a world the Antichrist is gradually controlling, and poses possible details of Christ's return from prophecy.

Thanks Mark

I'll certainly check it out.


message 33: by Trudy (new)

Trudy Fletcher | 1 comments Wing of the Temple just out on Amazon.com

This is a collection of poems correlating biblical prophecy to current events and shows how we may be on the threshold of tribulation. It is based mostly on the Book of Daniel. It also describes a fictional end-times scenario. I posted an update March 18, so best if downloaded March 19.

Jack Cavanaugh (novelistjack) | 2 comments As for Christian end times novels being few and far between, it's not always up to the authors. In traditional publishing, publishers are the ultimate decision-makers as to what gets published and what doesn't. As an author, having worked with them for three decades, I can tell you from first hand experience how frustrating it is at times to see a need for a particular type of book and not being able to convince a publisher to fill it. With the increase of indie publishing that is changing, but many times the quality suffers. Hopefully, that will improve over time.


message 35: by Jack (new)

Jack Cavanaugh (novelistjack) | 2 comments I have some titles that approach end times themes:

BEHOLD Behold: A Coming of Age Story for Mankind- a boy has seizures so violent they throw his spirit out of his body and back in time where he learns he's been selected as one of seven to bring the candlesticks of Revelation to the present day valley of Meggido for an apocalyptic event.

KINGDOM WARS A Hideous Beauty: Kingdom Wars ITartarus: Kingdom Wars II: A Novel present day angelic warfare. A bestselling biographer learns that he's part angel and a key player in angelic warfare.

DEATH WATCH Death Watchpeople receive messages that they will die in 48-hours. Without exception, they do. A supernatural end-times scenario as the forces of evil ramp up their attack on humans.


message 36: by LA (new)

LA Brown (la_brown) | 2 comments Hello, I'm new here and I have to say...Praise God for indie publishing!
I am a new author (two out this year), and two more in the works. One of the two I have out now, The Father's Footsteps plays on the edge of slightly futuristic, with conspiracy theory undertones.
One of the ones in the works is a Christian Thriller that is (tentatively) called The Trial of Andrew Osher, which is based on the coming Apocalypse. I have some excerpts on my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/L.A.Brown.do...
Hopefully it will be edited and out by Christmas this year.

These look fantastic! As soon as I'm done with my current WIP, I will be sure to read those!
Thanks for the update!

Cliff Ball (cliffball) | 5 comments Times of Tribulation Christian End Times Thriller by Cliff Ball

The seventh and final novel in the Christian fiction series, The End Times Saga.

Times of Tribulation follows the entire seven year period as various characters survive the seven trumpet and seven bowl judgments.

In the North American region, which is one of ten administrative regions set up by the Patriarch, the former mayor of Dallas becomes the second to rule over the region after the first one disappoints the world leader. The Administrator hunts down new believers in Christ, makes the people in his region fear him, and deals with each disaster that affects his rule.

In Big Bend, some Doomsday Preppers try to avoid the forces of the Patriarch and the administrator of North America. As they survive the various judgments, they come across new Christians who help them to come to understand how Jesus died for their sins before His second coming.

Find out more in the final novel of The End Times Saga.
