Up and Coming

I'm in the field now (things slow down here in the summer!) so I don't have a lot to tell you. I will, however, tell you some of what we have up and coming.

First of all, in the distant future, I will write that third and final essay on Bone...after the person who borrowed it gives it back (you know who you are).

Also in the distant, possibly less distant future, is an essay on those Harry Potter novels and what I think is a good way for Christians to view magic in fiction. This one requires some research and reading. You'll note over on the sidebar that I'm in the midst of Hans Christian Andersen, which will serve me when I write this one. I'll probably also give Andersen his own discussion.

To my temporal shame, I actually watched 300 recently. I want to give this a more-than-usual extensive discussion, so I have a few things to look at or up before I present the review, which you can anticipate this weekend. In the meanwhile, check out the review at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which is a lot less harsh than I'm going to be. I also discovered the existence of an earlier movie on this subject, The 300 Spartans, though I haven't seen it.

I recently had opportunity to read the comic, The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye. I was borrowing it, though, and had to give it back, so if I write it up I will have to do so entirely from memory. For a great Christian discussion of zombie comics, check out this fine post at the SF Gospel on the subject of religion and zombies. Check out this one, too.
