Support Kickstarter project “BANDERSNATCH Goes Audio!!” today
Diana Pavlac Glyer has taken interest in one particularly fascinating field of research with the Inklings, that is the likes of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and friends – their creativity, their friendship, how they supported each other through discussion, criticism, mutual motivation. Her 2007 book The Company They Keep is one of those books that should be on any serious Tolkien scholar’s – and fan’s! – to-read-list. Although in my heart I still subscribe to the concept of individual talent, i.e. genius, her arguments are well-made and offer an insight into the Inklings’ routine you won’t find anywhere else.
I haven’t read her latest book BANDERSNATCH: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Creative Collaboration of the Inklings yet which came out this year but based on her work in recent years I am quite convinced this is going to be another amazing book. And today you have the chance in helping that book to be even more widely available – as an audiobook via a Kickstarter project.
It is at short notice, yes, and the project has already been funded – but I would like to suggest you chip in and get some of those stretch goals in.
And yes, I did, too.
