The Eagles are Coming!

The Eagles are Coming!, my essay on the power of fantasy storytelling and fairy tales is published in the new issue of Response magazine. It features a new, original illustration by Bryan Pollard of the eagles rescuing Frodo and Sam at the climax of The Return of the King.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    To add to my previous post–I got my first print issue yesterday and WOW, the artwork to “The Eagles are Coming” is really, really cool. The internet just doesn’t do it justice.

    Thanks for posting, it’s an issue that I needed today. :-). I really liked your “The Eagles Are Coming” and “The Hope Factor”. That’s all I’ve had time to read so far, but I’m planning on reading more.
