- Mar 17, 2007Dear Kim,
If you have the Scull and Hammond Companion and Guide you have access to
good guidance from trustworthy judges about what books are first rate: in
the "Works Consulted" section you will find daggers by selected entries;
these are the ones they "consider...particularly useful for an appreciation
of Tolkein's life and works." You won't waste your time with any of these.

posts a great deal.

C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien as Writers in Community, by Glyer, that looks
fairly good. I'm wondering if anyone has read it yet, and if you could give
a recommendation about purchasing it?

"use" more than simply read Christina Scull and Wayne Hammond's wonderful
set (although - why did it take Amazon so long to get me my copies?). I
would like to avoid spending precious time with books that aren't first
rate. Any guidance would be appreciated.
