ABOUT PEDRO GABRIEL
Pedro Gabriel is a Portuguese oncology doctor, with a penchant for Shakespeare, Milton, Chesterton, Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. As a published writer of fantasy novels, he seeks to better understand the relationship of God and Man by focusing on the frailty of the human condition, be it physical or spiritual. Since his younger years, Pedro has been fascinated by ancient myths and legends, and dreamed of creating his own full mythology one day. “The Chronicles of Dumah” is the fulfillment of this dream.
Pedro chats about his new novel Ironcraft: The Chronicles of Dumah, a fantasy fiction epic. Taking its name from the Hebrew word for “silence”, Dumah is a brand new cosmos with fascinating locations, imagination-inducing creatures, and incredible heroes. Follow the history of this universe from its creation to its end, and allow yourself to be touched by the lifestories of its characters.
ABOUT THIS SHOW: Silhouettes of the Truth
The show about Catholic fiction for ordinary, modern authors! We talk creed, craft, and co-creation, rooted in grit, grace, gods, and dragons. Let’s inspire your faith and your fiction!
We’re inspired by the words of St Basil to see the silhouettes of the truth’ in secular literature. In crafting fiction, we are also haunted by and hunting these ‘silhouettes’ of truth, beauty, and goodness that are dimly seen through stories. Human beings and human stories are full of flaws and fascination. As authors, we are drawn to dramatize the realities of the spiritual, mystical, and mortal life.
