The Inklings and Arthur Series Index

This series that celebrated the release of The Inklings and King Arthur: J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, C. S. Lewis, and Owen Barfield on the Matter of Britain has been one of the best blog series that I have ever seen. This pleases me, since nothing could compliment Sørina Higgins’ editorial work on the Oxford Inklings and their Arthurian contexts more than great public writing. The series is filled with excellent articles by leading academics, emerging scholars, and independent writers and artists from various countries in Europe and North America.

Part of the success of this series was the continued editing excellence and comment moderation by guest editor, David Llewellyn Dodds. David is no stranger to the world of “Inklings Online,” and as readers will know, is one of the important contributors to the work of Charles Williams and modern Arthuriana in the last generation. It was a thrill to have such a high-profile editor, I am very proud to have hosted the series.

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.

    Thanks for this post! I’m really tempted to purchase the book but it’s rather pricey I’m afraid …
