RE: [mythsoc] Landscape With Dragons P.S. (movies)
- Berni Phillips: As a Catholic, it was a relief to read that sort of
thing from a Catholic perspective --
the Left Behind books are anti-Catholic.
JH: The irony in all of this is that some of the same people who buy
and read the Left-Behind series-fantasy in the pejorative sense-are the
folks who think Tolkien and Lewis are satanic because they deal with
witches, wizards, and magic-fantasy in the best sense.
Hence, they read bad fiction with bad theology, and reject good fiction
with good theology. Only in America.

- Hello fellows:
I've been off-list for some time. One reason is that
I've been looking after an early Mythopoeic personage,
Jon Lackey. He was the producer of the "Greater
Trumps" masque that was mounted at
the second Mythcon in 1971. He had been in ill health
for much of this previous year.
I'm sorry to report that he passed away on February
26th of cancer.
He was an enormous influence on my life, as well as
many others. He was involved with the very
first campaign to produce a film of "Rings" in 1957.
A major contributor to the SCA, LASFS, a tutor and
mentor to many, RenFair performer, artist, sculptor,
costumer, composer, and so much more.
Please pass this information on to anyone who might
have known him, and have them contact me
as regards a planned memorial.
