A Bloody Habit and the Case for Gothic Fiction

After the incredible response we’ve received so far about our series on Catholic fiction, we decided to add a bonus episode about a rising star in the Catholic literary world.

Eleanor Bourg Nicholson

In today’s BONUS episode, we talk with Eleanor Bourg Nicholson, author of the new Gothic novel from Ignatius Press, A Bloody Habit. We talk to Eleanor about why Gothic literature is so important (and fascinating!), the modern misuse of the vampire story, and why skeptics and Dominican friars play a central role in her story.
