Nourish the Mind with Visionary Fiction

Visionary Fiction entertains, which is, after all, the main purpose of fiction as a literary form. But visionary fiction goes one step further; it nourishes the mind.

Not all visionary fiction, though, nourishes the mind in the same way. Some novels in this category are profound and literary, others deceptively simple and straightforward. Visionary novels also range in time period and setting, from historical to contemporary to futuristic. There’s visionary fiction written for children, middle grades, young adults, new adults, and mature adults. There’s Celtic, LGBTQ, and science fiction. And the list goes on. In other words, all visionary fiction has a common characteristic at its core, but it comes in many flavours.

All of us as readers have preferences in the types of stories we enjoy, as we prefer certain foods in our diet. Some of us choose fruits over vegetables, beef over fish, bread over pasta. We can further break down our food preferences into apples over oranges, squash over cucumbers, steak over ground beef, halibut over trout.

Likewise, although visionary fiction distinguishes itself from other book genres in that it helps reach and show what the eyes can’t see but the inner soul can understand, it can be further broken into subcategories such as those mentioned above, as well as utopian, fantasy, horror, metaphysical, and spiritual.

This may sound confusing, but we at the Visionary Fiction Alliance are here to help you find the type of visionary fiction you love to read. Check out the various subtypes of Visionary fiction titles below, which are also listed in the VFA bookstore.
