100 Facts about Charles Williams

King Kong posterWell, for today’s Friday Feature (on early Saturday), this is super cool. Grevel Lindop has written an award-winning, critical biography of this strange man, Charles Williams–so influential to C.S. Lewis and the Inklings and a superbly interesting writer (if difficult at times). A couple of years ago, Hanna at Book Geeks Anonymous took Grevel’s top tweets of 100 weird and wonderful CW facts and blogged them. I missed it, but Oddest Inkling scholar Sørina Higgins tweeted it today and I want to share it with you.

#10 and #45 and #96 are funny, and #9, 22, 23, 34, 65, 74, 83 are intriguingly weird. I didn’t know about many of them, but am not sure about #73 and #91. I’m glad #78 failed. #99 makes too much sense.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
