use, but it's probably more polite than what I'm thinking, which
is that any attempt at what I'll call Narnian fan fiction by its
devotees has been thoroughly stomped on by Douglas Gresham and
the Estate over the years, but they're okay now with letting a
commercial enterprise do it. Who are they getting to write these
"original stories," I wonder?
Speaking of the MereLewis list, btw, what's happened to it?
There was a brief flurry of activity a few months back (after a
long hiatus), and then silence again.
