And the Winner Is . . .

Verlyn Flieger!

Or, to be more accurate, Verlyn Flieger's latest book, GREEN SUNS AND FAERIE, just won the Mythopoeic Award last night as the year's best work in Inklings Scholarship.

Competition was stiff: Corey Olsen's new book on THE HOBBIT, Jason Fisher's collection on Tolkien's sources, Rbt Boenig's book on CSL as medievalist, and Jn Bremer's rather eccentric book on CSL's not being a war poet.

Congratulations to all the finalists, and especially to Verlyn.

current audiobook: McGrath's CSL biography (still; getting near the end)
