Unlikely place for Inklings refs
- I just finished a ten-year old Dean Koontz novel, "Intensity". Magically, the
heroine is conversant w. Tolkien & Lewis, and imagines motifs from Narnia to
her through the requisite peril provided by a serial murderer.
Similar refs have been cropping up in other horror, mystery, thriller novels
(which I am known to
read while hiking in the local mountains up the street). Shows how
Tolkien & Lewis have become about as familiarly referenced as Shakespeare. A
sign for our culture I would think.
OK, someone's got to use this revelation as a straight line. Step right up.
