Re: Greetings, Gentlemen - an introduction of sorts
- Thank you, Walter! It's already been very helpful, and very
interesting to read what's gone before.
I'm certainly not the Tolkien scholar I once was (twenty years ago!)
so I hope I can keep up.
I also had read (and in one case, responded to) some criticisms of my
work posted here - which I have to say, was rather refreshing. I've
largely been having to contend with readers who know much LESS about
the Inklings than I do (including one reviewer who claimed I'd
'invented' the Charles Williams character as a viewpoint character for
Tolkien and Lewis...) so again, I'm happy to be here.
