Fiction for the future: VFA launched

VFA Launch Banner

Visionary Fiction Alliance launch: 17 August 2012


I’m pleased to announce that the Visionary Fiction Alliance – of which I am a founding member – has gone live today.

Its key aims are to promote and increase awareness of visionary fiction, and to help its authors. According to the site, the characteristics of VF include:

  • Growth of consciousness is the central theme of the story and drives the protagonist, and/or other important characters.
  • Oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal,  psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices
  • Is universal in its worldview and scope

Founding member Jodine Turner has added this thought-provoking line to its definition:

“Visionary Fiction speaks the language of the soul. It offers a vision of humanity as we dream it could be.” 

I like that line because it sums up Iqbal’s belief that art and literature are like collective dreams, as per a recent post here.

Win 7 novels

As part of the launch celebration, the VFA is giving away seven of its founders’ titles to one lucky winner (and that includes a copy of Systems). Come on over and enter for a chance to win!
