Interesting idea. The term is "playwright," as in *cartwright* = "maker
of." I'd love to see what this is like. Sounds ecological.

She most definitely does. I love her stuff. We focus on Tolkien, Lewis and
Charles Williams, but also read others like George MacDonald, G. K.
Chesterton and other mythopoeic writers.

I just looked up this Willow and Shadow series that you speak of. I had
never heard of it before. A quick search found three books, _Shadow Moon_,
_Shadow Dawn_, and _Shadow Star_, all co-written by George Lucas and Chris
It appears that everything supposedly by George Lucas, including things that
have just his name on the cover, is actually just a story (sometimes a
screenplay) by Lucas that has been expanded into a novel by a co-writer.
Chris Claremont seems to make his living doing novelizations.
Can you tell us about this series? Is it related to the movie _Willow_,
which Lucas co-wrote but didn't direct? Is it any good?
