Iambic Interview: “Who Influenced The Auralia Thread?” “Why Is Fantasy So Popular?”

At the blog Iambic Admonit, I’ve been interviewed about The Auralia Thread and the state of modern moviegoing. This was a challenging interview: I could have written an essay for almost every question, including…

  • Who influenced The Auralia Thread?
  • Why is fantasy so popular right now?
  • What topics are trending in movies today?
  • What is the state of “spirituality” in movies today?

I’m afraid that I actually did contribute some essay-length in response. So follow the link and check out the conversation… but it will require some sustained attention.

Many thanks to Sorina Higgins for the interview!

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.
