Praise for Dappled Things
“[Y]ears from now an Edwin O’Connor may look back and recall how he got his start with Dappled Things.” — Richard John Neuhaus, First Things
“This publication serves as one of the greatest outlets of Beauty—true Beauty mind you, which is ever distinct from prettiness—that I’ve ever known. Each issue contains a royal flush in the Catholic gamble with the modern world, in its poetry, short stories, essays, criticism, and artwork. Each issue awakens the soul to meet its Maker. Each issue—for me personally—is a welcome respite from the eternal snark of the Internet.” — Marc Barnes, Bad Catholic
“[An] excellent literary journal . . . with excellent essays, fiction, art and poetry.” — Amy Welborn, Open Book
