Books, C. S. Lewis, Tolkien, writing

The Inklings–in a novel?

The following is the book trailer for a new book that came out recently from Ignatius Press; “Looking for the King” by David C. Downing. It includes Arthurian myth, historical fiction, and Tolkien and Lewis as characters. I’m extremely picky about Tolkien/Lewis scholarship–having read almost everything published by C. S. Lewis (with the exception of a few literary works, though I’ve read most of them, some of his poetry, and his first and third volumes of collected letters) and having read The Lord of the Rings and other works of Tolkien multiple times.

According to an interview, the author did extensive research on Lewis and Tolkien. Let’s hope that he did!
