New Catholic Books & Media

NCBM-300Stopher Publishing’s New Catholic Books & Media (ISSN #2156-9835) was a quarterly newsprint publication published from October 2010 to November 2012. The print publication and the paper’s website ceased publication February 28, 2013.

“We received wonderful responses from readers about this publication,” says Christopher Fenoglio, Publisher and CEO of Stopher Publishing. “Unfortunately, rising distribution costs and uncertain advertising revenues led us to the decision to discontinue the publication.”

Each issue of New Catholic Books & Media was filled with the latest book reviews, author interviews, lists of the best-selling books in four categories and announce-ments of newly-released books. Often included were movie reviews, ratings, columns and film features, and sources for Catholic television, radio and new media.
