The Third Inkling by Grevel Lindop

Available from Amazon. Click here.

A new and by all accounts excellent biography of Charles WIlliams has just been publishedby poet and writerGrevel Lindop. It is high on my reading list.

Thanks, Ted, that's very kind.

I read a very very wide variety of stuff, allegdly for research for my book, but I sometimes think it's the other way around and I put stuff in my book that I want to research...

Ted Morgan I like seeing your reading. You have wide interests but depth as well.

I am always for the verge of reading more Philip K. Dick. His last novel is a masterwork. I do not think the way he does in most of his work but I know the back story on the last novel.

You have a fine Catholic sensibility but you also tolerate other vies well.

Debra Rach and I are looking forward to the new venue--not so far out, and right across the street from Book Bin! The L'Engle is a very nice read, too.

My reading focus now is on David Allen's Time Management stuff. The level of both spread and detail is so high with the Idylls Press work, I was feeling the need for some professional advice! They're excellent books, very common sensical, and with their priorities straight. I think Allen's system is going to be very useful.
