WONDER's not just a magazine...it's a way of LIFE! And here's a carefully selected batch of links to prove it.
Diary of a Fairy Child
When you were growing up, did people sometimes look at you like you had a third eye in the middle of your forehead? WONDER Magazine founder Lint Hatcher knows the feeling...and he penned this semi-autobiographical spiritual adventure story to capture it.
The Power of Imaginative Writing
Get your mental furniture rearranged as writer Barbara Parsons Linville recounts her first earth-shaking encounter with The Chronicles of Narnia.
Romanticism, Wagner, C. S. Lewis, & Me
Back to the Bible...by way of Beethoven, UFO's, Robin Hood, and 2001; A Space Odyssey. The irrepressible Dave Armstrong shares his one-of-a-kind testimony.
The Ethics of Elfland
What do fairy-tales & fantasy have to do with real life? More than you might think according to G.K. Chesterton, writing here in an excerpt from his crucial 1905 masterpiece, Orthodoxy.
The Fantastic Imagination
Explore the power of myth...with one of its greatest modern masters, legendary Scottish fantasist George MacDonald.
Into the Wardrobe - a C. S. Lewis Web Page
Here's the man whose life and thought gave birth to WONDER. And this particular site is generally considered to be the best Lewis page on the web.
C. S. Lewis Mega-Links Page
Just like it says -- and a fantastic resource it is. There's enough here to keep you going for years...
The G. K. Chesterton Web Page
If Lewis gave birth to WONDER, then G.K. Chesterton gave birth to Lewis -- (as Lewis himself acknowledged). All we can say is this; to encounter G.K.C. for the first time is to find a signpost pointing the way to happiness!
G. K. Chesterton Mega-Links Page
From Dave Armstrong, the same man who overwhelmed you with Lewis above. Lose yourself in the Man Who Was Chesterton!
The Golden Key -- The George MacDonald Web Page
Grandfather of all Christian Fantasists, George MacDonald pioneered the first steps to WONDER over a hundred years ago.
The J. R. R. Tolkien Information Page
Massive, smothering amounts of Tolkien information, in fact -- and all of it entirely welcome!
The Dorothy L. Sayers Society
Dedicated to the proposition that all cigar-smoking English feminist devout-Catholic detective story writers ARE NOT created equal!
Madeleine L'Engle Homepage
Click here...and a wrinkle in cyberspace will transport you to the niftiest little fan page, completely dedicated to Christian fantasy's greatest living practitioner.
A non-cheesy Christian Movie Review site! Site-creator David Bruce has this to say: "I have been disappointed by how few Christian sites review films from a spiritual or even Christ-centered point of view. They seem to be moralistically centered. They miss the positive changes... Something powerful is happening; I think God is using our culture to talk to us." Try his approach instead... you won't always agree, but Rev. Bruce is definitely on the right track.
Latter-day Jesus Freaks Dave Canfield & Mike Hertenstein work for Cornerstone Magazine and they run this fantastic web page inspired by WONDER. Go there!
Christian Fandom Homepage
God or Godzilla? Until the late, great Ross Pavlac founded Christian Fandom a few years back, many of us had to choose! Click here if you can relate...

Answers in Action
It adds a funky twist to an SF/Fantasy mag, I'll grant you, but is the historic Christian worldview genuinely believable? Bob & Gretchen Passantino seem to think so...and maybe you will too after spending some time at their classy apologetics page.
Another of our favorite apologetics sites. Real questions get real answers here -- and all visitors are honored, no matter what their beliefs.
The Aquinas Cafe
Thomism for Dummies! Patrick & John -- "two regular guys running on caffeine and nicotine" -- are here to argue radical philosophic optimism with you into the wee small hours...
The Francis Schaeffer Page
Evangelical philosopher Francis Schaeffer was a big influence on the old print WONDER, with his theme of "the Lordship of Christ over the whole of life." Learn more about him here.
