- Mar 21, 2002Hello, Marianne -- this is David Bratman here.
I remember you from San Francisco in olden times, such as when The
Silmarillion was newly published and not yet in braille, so Jo Wilcox and I
came over one day and read the whole thing into your tape recorder. That
was hungry work, and every time we read a reference to "The Green Hill of
Tuna" it made us hungrier!
Jo is still around, though not, I think, on this list. She's married to
Bill Welden, who was one of the consultants for the Peter Jackson film of
The Lord of the Rings.
I also remember two years later, at Mythcon in San Jose, by which time The
Silmarillion had been published in braille. At the Bardic Circle you read
"Ainulindale" to us in the dark. That was marvellously effective.
