Now if somebody was to craft a podcast just for me than it would be the new podcast “A Good Story is Hard to Find” with the tagline “Two Catholics talking about books, movies, and the traces of “one Reality” they find there.”
Julie from Happy Catholic and Scott Danielson a contributor to SFFaudio start by discussing a Zombie novel “The Reaper are the Angels” by Alden Bell and it was a good conversation indeed and I look forward to future episodes.
Julie is on another book fast this year – that is she is trying not to buy any books and instead rely only on the library and review copies. The irony is that they start off with a book that I have added to my wish list to buy. Oh well another year as a book glutton.
Oh, I hope they review some Dean Koontz! I just finished ‘What the Night Knows’. Koontz makes me want to be a saint – not because his good guys escape the horrors of evil, but because in their struggles against it, their goodness is so strong and compellingly beautiful.
And, by God’s grace, attainable.
Jeff – thank you for the nice shout out! And it makes me very happy, naturally, to know that we’re helping the book industry stay healthy by getting OTHER people to buy books!
dancingcrane – definitely! Though I haven’t yet read “What the Night Knows.” But we will not ignore Dean Koontz. 🙂
Of all the things for people to “fast” from, I say books should be the LAST thing! With e-readers and the move toward visual media, books are going to go away unless people continue to purchase them. Maybe I’m over-reacting, but I don’t want to see books disappear from our society. It would be another step towards the dissolution of our culture. PLEASE BUY YOUR BOOKS, and A LOT OF THEM!!! 🙂
