  1. Hello, Joseph.
    I found this site by way of a post you made on John C. Wright’s blog. I enjoyed reading your series of posts on the history of US Catholic education, and it looks like your write on many other topics that interest me.
    Regarding this post, I strongly recommend you read the 1959 Hugo winner, James Blish’s “A Case of Conscience.” Not only is it a great science fiction story, the hero is an effectively-depicted Jesuit priest, and the story generally gives religion a very thoughtful treatment.

    1. Thanks for reading and for the suggestion. Sadly, I’ve read nothing from that list for several months now (must update it!) and have PILES of SFF to read…

      Yea, yea, cry me river, etc. So I’ll get to it, just not too soon, most likely.
