There’s a lot of Catholic related literature out there, but when you sit back and think about it what is the one truly underserved area? Well zombie fiction of course! Seriously, when was the last time you read some good Catholic zombie fiction? Well your wait is over, Ryan Charles Trusell joined TCND to disccuss Ora Et Labora Et Zombies. Yup, you read that right.
Ora et Labora et Zombies is an epistolary novel, told through letters. In this case they are Tom’s letters, written to Ava while he waits for her to join him and their son at the Abbey. All that stands between them is time and uncertainty… and zombies?
Ora et Labora et Zombies is comprised of seventy-two handwritten Letters of between 4-6 pages, reproduced on specially watermarked stationery with a hand-printed serigraph cover sheet. Each Letter will be published individually, as a weekly serial, and distributed to readers through the mail. This idiosyncratic method of publication aims to celebrate and prolong the disappearing experience of receiving letters in the mailbox, and also to create in the reader a sense of anticipation, of waiting as the dramatis personae must wait to discover what is happening.
