A group photo taken with a Priestly author at CMG 2018

It’s Saturday morning and I’m just finishing packing as I get ready for a 8 hour drive back to Massachusetts (with perhaps a slight detour on the way) at the end of the Catholic Marketing Network 2018 event.

I’ve recorded 35 episodes of a new weekly radio show with catholic authors that will be going into production at WQPH (the premiere date has not been set) and another 50-60 video interviews (I lost count) since Tuesday.  All of them will be blogged here over the next two months so that each subject will get a post as they deserve. We are starting this list with Catholic Sci-fi author Karina Fabian.

Normally authors go up in the order I interview them, but I decided to bump Karina’s interview to the top of the upload and blog list not only because Karina has a cool fedora but because she is a founder of the Catholic Writers Guild which she talks about in the interview. Most of the writers I interviewed and will post about are members. So since she elected to promote the guild and the good work it does for current and potential catholic authors rather than her own body of work (which every writer reading understand the necessarily of) I’m giving her the first spot not only in her honor, but as a proper introduction for all the guild members who will follow in subsequent posts.

That Karina is a beautiful woman is self evidence from the video, that she is an excellent writer is self evident from her books. That she is cool is self evident from her fedora, but that she embodies the servants heart of the catholic faith is showed by her desire to do what she can to advance others work over the chance to do her own.

A postscript. At mass that evening (there is daily mass every day at CMN and I confess while I made all the evening masses I slept through all the morning ones) I ended up sitting next to Karina. While I of course had my fedora off women are allowed to wear hats at mass but her black fedora was replaced by a red mass veil, which was once traditional among Catholic women pre-vatican 2 but has made a bit of a comeback. It was the first time I’d ever seen her without her hat for more that a brief moment and I asked her about it. This was her answer:

“When I wear my hat, it’s about me, when I wear the veil it’s about God”

THAT is what I call a Catholic woman!

PS Longtime readers might have noticed that unlike other trips I’ve only managed to upload 2 of said interviews so far.  For “The hardest working man in the blogosphere” this is practically dereliction of duty, however on this trip my wife joined me and she and the duties involved of being a good husband on such a trip has reintroduced me to the joys of dinner and sleep when the work day is done concepts previously unknown on such trips so I beg your indulgence as I wait till I get home to begin uploads en mass to Youtube.

Update: My wife remembered Karina’s quote correctly, fixed

A friend of mine has a new book out, here is a bit from the press release about it.

When Islamic terror strikes,liberals insist that it has nothing to do with Islam. Author Michael Isenberg disagrees. His new book,The Thread of Reason,shows why. Not only is the ideology of terror deeply rooted in Muslim thought,going back to medieval times, but its sources may be found in the writings of one of the most revered figures in Islam.

The Thread of Reason tells the story of the assassination of Nizam al-Mulk, who ruled the Seljuq Empire,wielding more power than the sultans he served—until the fall night in 1092 when a terrorist’s blade struck him down on the road to Baghdad.

Determined to learn who was behind the murder of his chief minister, the sultan turns to the two smartest people he knows: the leading scholar of science,Omar Khayyam, and the leading scholar of shari’ah(Islamic Law), Abu Hamid Ghazali.

“The assassination of Nizam al-Mulk happened in real life,” Isenberg says. “In my fiction book I solve the mystery of who was behind it.
“Khayyam and Ghazali were real people. Khayyamwas quite a character. He’s the only figure I came across in my research who played practical jokes. In the west he’s known for a collection of poems he wrote called the Rubaiyat—Sheldon

If you like historical fiction you’ll like his book. You can buy his book here.

Of course even a fictional account of Islam can get you into trouble with the SPLC of course that was until someone decided to stand up to their Anti-Muslim extremist scam
