If you have been over at Roger's The Oxford Inklings, you will know there was a group before the Inklings. Before the Inklings, before the Hobbit, Tolkien led a group on Northern Mythology where they spoke Old Norse and read the old myths to each other. Late into the night around their coal fire they walked in the cold expanse of the north. Lewis when he came to Oxford, learned of this group and was thrilled to finally find kindred souls.
How did this slip by the real Tolkienites. We had read about this for years, and now here it is. Enjoy, be inspired, be enriched!
