      Sayers and MacDonald were not members of the Inklings (the literary group),
      of course. MacDonald was a mainly 19th century writer. Sayers never
      attended a meeting, although Charles Williams read her letters on Dante to
      the group. Several people attended a meeting or two: Roy Campbell, for
      example. I don't find Dom Bede Griffiths in Carpenter's list. R. B.
      McCallum should be added to Ted's list.
