For the past fifty years or so one of the main concerns at any intellectual gathering of Mormons has been the lack of a significant Mormon literature. However, LDS writers now seen to be springing out of the woodwork, and this effusion may at last bring to an end the debate about whether a Mormon literature exists or not.

By far the most popular writer to emerge recently is Blaine M. Yorgason, whose Charlie’s Monument, after being turned down by twenty-one publishers, finally found a home at Bookcraft and has since sold about 150,000 copies. Although critics have been slightly less than lukewarm about that book, in any hard-cover league that’s in the best-seller category.
