What is Visionary Fiction?
Visionary Fiction is a literary style that weaves threads of fantasy into a depiction of everyday life. Its heroes aren’t fairies or sorcerers, they’re ordinary people — whose lives happen to butt up against the extraordinary.
Besides telling a good story, the genre enlightens and encourages readers to expand their awareness of greater possibilities. It helps them see the world in a new light and recognize dimensions of reality commonly ignored.
Embracing spiritual and esoteric wisdom, it makes it relevant for our modern life. Gems of this spiritual insight are brought forth in story form so that readers can experience the knowledge from within themselves. The story oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal events, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices.
