Fiction fans, take note

Debra Murphy, of Idylls Press, has put together this reading list for Catholics who enjoy fiction. Be sure to read her Criteria for inclusion, so as to understand that not everything on the list is necessarily written by an orthodox Catholic.

They've chose to err

"on the side of inclusivity rather than doctrinal purity, in large part in order to encourage discussion of the subject from a more literary than doctrinal point of view. We are interested in how Christians of every stripe deal with religious (and secular) themes in fictional works, and will therefore likely, then draw a larger circle than some others would tolerate"

which, in my opinion, makes for some fascinating discussion.
