Second Life Chat: Sword and Sorcery June 11

I wanted to let you know about tomorrow's speculative fiction chat in Second Life. The topic will be "Swords and Sorcery: Is there a place for magic in Christian speculative fiction?" Both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien included magical elements in their stories, yet some claim that even in obvious fantasy such inclusion should never be made. We will be discussing, what, if any is the place of magic in speculative fiction and how it should be handled.

Second life is a virtual world where you move around using an avatar. The discussion will be held at my house in SL. If you have the SL software installed you can access it directly by pasting this URL in your internet browser: . It will open the software and take you directly to my living room. If you do not have the software installed, you can find it at . Once you install it and launch it the first time, you can configure the appearance of your avatar and learn how to move around in SL.

The following Tuesday (June 19) I'll have a traditional chat at Wayfarers Journal on the same topic. That is at . Both chats are at 7 p.m. Pacific time. (Which also happens to be SL time)
