Website Review: Catholic Authors

A review based on:


This unassuming website calling itself Catholic Authors is just that, a site devoted entirely to English-speaking Catholic authors, past and present. It contains a wonderful collection of biographical sketches of a large variety of authors; some of them are household names such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Chesterton, and Belloc, some are more obscure. A number of these sketches are autobiographical while others are not, but each of them is fascinating in its own way. This is a unique resource which we recommend to all those with literary interests.
