McSweeney’s Publishes a Letter to Aslan

McSweeney’s Mari Ness submits A Letter to His Imperial Majesty, Aslan:

To His Imperial Majesty, Aslan, the Great Lion, he who rises from uncomfortable and broken stone tables, son of the Emperor-Over-Sea, with extreme respect:

In the course of talking-animal events, it may become necessary for one animal‚ or human‚ or divine being‚ to come and rescue Narnia from its deepest, darkest hours. We’re cool with that. We’re just saying …

Why does it have to be kids?

No offense to your wisdom and such, but, frankly, things don’t go so well when they show up. Consider the results so far…

Thanks to my friend, fellow WaterBrook Press author Andrew Peterson, for the link!

Be sure to pick up a copy of Andrew’s first novel, a hilarious fantasy adventure for the young and the young at heart: At the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. And he blogged his own review of the movie Prince Caspian at The Rabbit Room.

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.

    the only two blogs I read are looking closer and the Rabbit room. I feel like two of my worlds have just collided.

    I’m adding my kudos for Andrew Peterson’s novel and looking forward to more books from him as well. :-)

    I’ll second the recommendation for Andrew’s novel. I’m impatiently looking forward to reading the next books from both Andrew and Jeffrey to find out what adventures happen next in the worlds they have created.
