#23 Steve Rzasa

Steve Rzasa is the author of several novels of science-fiction, steampunk, and fantasy—with a bunch more in progress. His latest novel is For Us Humans: A Tale of Alien Occupation (Enclave), a sort of buddy cop story with a twist.

“Most of my novels are science fiction, so the worldbuilding involves advanced technology. My faith doesn’t make it more difficult, because I spend a lot of time extrapolating from history and technology what future versions and advancements would be like. For my fantasy novels, that’s a trickier question. Those stories involve the use of elemental magic by both heroes and villains. In that case, I start from the perspective that magic in the story world is not what the Bible classifies as ‘witchcraft’ or ‘sorcery.’ Instead, it is an elemental force that I made part of the fictional Creation, and therefore just as much God’s handiwork as gravity and wind. The more fantastical the story, the more I reference my faith to determine if what I’m portraying jives with the Bible, if the concept is even mentioned.”
