Re: Query on Lewis book
- I wrote HarperCollins and asked. I was informed that it will go on
sale this coming October 24 (2006). I heard, as well, from another
source, second-hand, that the delay is related to the fact that
additional materials from Lewis' correspondance during this period
were still being collected.

- For what it's worth, the earlier volumes of the Complete C.S. Lewis Letters also had their publication repeatedly delayed. The reason, surely, has been that preparing these editions has taken longer than was originally thought. At any rate I haven't been surprised at the fact that this one has also been repeatedly delayed.
Be aware, anyone who uses these editions, that there are letters which were in earlier Lewis letters collections removed or redated in this one, and that if you check the original letters in the Wade Collection you'll find that the transcriptions are not always accurate, sometimes when previous transcriptions are more accurate.

Has anyone written any article(s) on this problem yet? Or is it still
at the point that scholars are aware of the problem, but no one has
yet to write anything? (I ask because I'd like to have that
information at hand when reading the volumes. Having some of John
Rateliffe's comments on Jacobs' *The Narnian* has been very helpful
when discussing the book with friends who aren't too familiar with
Lewis, other than a passing familiarity with Narnia and perhaps Mere
