Call in to speak with the host
David N. Alderman is a self-published author of an emerging new genre known as edgy Christian speculative fiction. In general terms, it is science fiction/fantasy/horror/supernatural fiction with Christian themes and edgy content that is both realistic, entertaining, and can appeal to both Christians and non-Christians alike.
His latest series, Black Earth, takes a gritty look at the life of Nathan Pierce, who on the night of his high school graduation witnesses what some think are the stars falling from the sky. Little does Nathan know that the evil about to infest Earth is like nothing the human race has ever seen. Soon he's caught in the crossfire of demons, a mercenary group, an immortal girl intent on killing herself, and even the President of the United States.

In his spare time, David never passes up the chance to read a great book. Some of his favorite authors are Stephen King, Mark Twain, A.C. Crispin, Tosca Lee, Orson Scott Card and Ted Dekker. David also enjoys video gaming to relieve some of the stress associated with crafting new worlds. A good round of Half Life 2: Deathmatch online does the trick, though he can also be found playing a multitude of games on his Xbox 360.
