on a quest, I suppose, to find out how we might engage in noble
discussion on this list.
I joined several days ago, and had all but forgotten until Ron's
e-mail. I am a C. S. Lewis fan myself and thought the list might be a
good place to learn and discuss. Are there others here, or are Ron and
I alone? Ron, I have been staring at my Tolkein volumes -- some, I
hesitantly confess I have owned for a while but have never read --
thinking of launching into a fresh read of familiar works, and a
first-time read of those works into which I have yet to journey.
I am also interested in expanding my contact with the work of George
MacDonald. I own copies of "Phantastes", "Lilith", and "The Princess
and the Goblin", in addition to marking web sites with e-texts. Any
suggestions on the best way to proceed?
