Forthcoming In the near future



In the near future I plan to review a book by St. Blog's own Ms. Karen Hall. It was a Book-of-the-Month Club main selection, and the back cover touts that it is "Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture." I don't know if it ever made it under a different title, but I don't think so. Ms. Hall has already issued strong cautions about this "early" work and I will keep in mind what she has to say about it. However, early investigation shows the writing to be good, although not as riveting as the genre normally entails. However, I am coming in off Peace Like a River (not to mention a day of illness) and that may well taint my overall view. I'll let you know what I think, but I suspect that I will enjoy it tremendously despite some elements that may not please all St. Blog's Parishioners.

Ms. Hall has been working with Mary Doria Russell whose work, The Sparrow was an incredibly fascinating, intricate, and ultimately horrifying and touching study of Jesuits in Space. (Yes, I know it sounds funny, but it is magnificent--perhaps the best such work since James Blish's A Case of Consience) Perhaps someday soon, I should make a list of Catholic and Christian Science Fiction. I invite contributions from the gallery.
