Bad Catholic Fiction
The All But Dissertation blog has a great discussion about why so much "Catholic" fiction is bad, while bad or non-Christians write such great stuff. This has always baffled me. Of course, the best Catholic literature is by Percy, Tolkien, Undset and O'Connor. I think wannabe Catholic authors should emulate them. Show, don't tell has always been the watchword of good writing, at least according to the writing magazines (which I used to read).
