“At all ages, if [fantasy and myth] is used well by the author and meets the right reader, it has the same power: to generalize while remaining concrete, to present in palpable form not concepts or even experiences but whole classes of experience, and to throw off irrelevancies. But at its best it can do more; it can give us experiences we have never had and thus, instead of 'commenting on life,' can add to it.”
― C.S. Lewis

Welcome! My name is Peter Dudek, and welcome to the Forsaken Kingdom - Christian Fantasy Website! I use this site to house my blog, and to provide information about my Christian Fantasy Novel series, Forsaken Kingdom.
Naturally, you'll find information about my Christian fantasy series at this site, as well as news about my other writing ventures. You can also read my blog, which will detail things I learn as I study the Bible, walk with Christ, read (fiction and non-fiction), and learn from others. I particularly have interest in blogging about issues that could stir controversy within the Christian circle, because I believe that dialogue about such issues eliminates the fear that often leads to unnecessary division.
So feel free to read, suggest, ponder or debate while exploring the posts :)
