    Sandra Meisel article re Catholics and science fiction - I always like her take on things.

    Once again, it's time to ask the question - anyone writing science fiction in NaNoWriMo this year? Raise your hand!

    They are really unique, aren't they? A sense of wonder, and they're clean, and Christian in outlook. Even though they aren't "hard" science fiction, they are enjoyable enough that I'm completely willing to suspend disbelief.

    Another book I'm curious if anyone has read, because I just recently read it - an old classic, James Blish's A Case of Conscience. It has a main character who is a Jesuit priest. From what the introduction to the book said, Blish was agnostic, and the Catholicism in the book was pre-Vatican II since it was published in the 1950s. I found it engaging to read, and the ending ambiguous. It might have one meaning to a believer and another meaning to a non-believer. Which only makes it more interesting, IMO.

    There are just so few Catholic science fiction works - I hope to change that with my own writing Wish me luck!

    I found the Catholic sci-fi blog I was thinking no longer existed but I think I just mistyped the name - anyhow, it's still around, and it's pretty cool:

    From the first time I read Zenna Henderson's People stories I liked her writing.

    And another discovery! A science fiction message board:
    Jul 20, '12 12:22 pm
    New author discovery - Zenna Henderson - writer in the 50s-70s. Apparently she was Mormon. There is a sort of Mormon "vibe" if you will to the stories in her books, but more importantly it is a Christian vibe and there's a sense of hopefulness as opposed to some of the nihilistic-ness of some sci-fi written from a secular point of view. I'd be interested in what others think.

    Onr little hint about the book: Isreal is a 'power player' back on earth.

    I like Poul Anderson - haven't read that particular book though. I will have to take a look at it. I have a friend who is into alternate histories and sci-fi and it definitely sounds like something she might enjoy as well.

    Anybody read Poal Anderson's HIGH CRUSADE? Main plot is a 14th century English village takes over a alain starship and what happens to them between then and when they are 'found' in the future time. It's an older book.

    I am reading "A Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter M Miller and can't recommend it takes place after a nuclear war were the Catholic church has become one of the few guardians of knowledge. Can't wait for the end!
