War in Heaven

“War in Heaven” is a novel written by Charles Williams in 1930. This was his first novel and from what I have read, it was rated as his best novel.   I had been meaning to get around to reading this author mainly since he was one of the famous Inklings and a sale on [Read More...]

Angela’s Song

cover-angelassong

Great story. Real characters. Good writing. This book was, in some ways, applied Theology of the Body. It’s romance that’s just about what I like and Catholicism not shoved down my throat. Guys, be warned: I’d call this chick lit. Gals, be encouraged: it’s gooood. It’s “name a big well-sold author” good. It’s completely Catholic, but [Read More...]

Catholicism Pure and Simple by Fr. Dwight Longenecker

If a good person decides to fight against evil he will always be at a disadvantage. … The evil person will naturally use every devious and nasty trick he can think of. That’s why he’s bad: he is a liar, a cheat, a murderer and a thoroughgoing scoundrel. However, the good person cannot use the [Read More...]

Terrapin: A Novel I Enjoyed Muchly

cover-terrapin_3d

(Yes, muchly is a word. At least when you are as delighted by a book as I was by Terrapin.) You know what I love more than almost anything? A good story. When that story is packaged between two covers and called a book, even better. (Yeah, it’s okay on my Kindle too. I’ll give you [Read More...]

The Crimes of Galahad by H. Albertus Boli, LL.D.

The Crimes of Galahad by H. Albertus Boli Ll.D. My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’ve long been a fan of Dr. Boli’s Celebrated Magazine. I was mildly interested when The Crimes of Galahad was published and then read a review from two reviewers I trust who both enjoyed it and also declined to describe [Read More...]

Reviewing “Cool for Cats” by Andrew Ordover

418HhuaKSoL

The release of the audiobook, read by author Andrew Ordover, prompted me to update my review. The price can’t be beat – $5! For why you want to hear it, read on! And I didn’t want to rely on Internet archives. First of all, our local paper is crap, and it keeps crap archives online. [Read More...]

Galactic Pot Healer by Philip K. Dick

Galactic Pot-Healer by Philip K. Dick My rating: 4 of 5 stars The Glimmung wants Joe Fernwright. Fernwright is a pot-healer – a repairer of ceramics – in a drably utilitarian future where such skills have little value. The Glimmung is a being that looks something like a gyroscope, something like a teenaged girl, and [Read More...]

Julie’s 2013 Personal Reading Challenge

My 2012 book challenge was so rewarding, making me pick up books I would just keep skipping over in favor of lighter reading. I’m doing it again this year. Some books are carried over from last year and some I dropped because they just didn’t look interesting to me right now. But you can see [Read More...]

Miskatonic School for Girls

So we were given this game for Christmas: Miskatonic School for Girls. The basic notion is that you are a student in an elite girl’s school in Arkham Massachusetts, and the kicker is that all of the faculty members, from the headmaster on down, are Lovecraftian horrors bent on driving you insane. Your goal is [Read More...]
