Re: Christopher Tolkien--JRR's Max or George Martin?

The degree in which CT engaged in &quot;editorial meddling&quot; is not entirely clear. He obviously engaged in a lot of cut and paste work. He admits that he wrote The Fall of Doriath himself. He concedes some of his editorial decisions were ill-advised or that some such decisions were made in the absence of knowledge of other existing manuscripts whose use may have been more appropriate. Some curse him, others praise him. I feel he did the best he could in quickly completing a daunting task, but sometimes wish he took more time.

--Mithadan--
"The Silmarils with living light
were kindled clear, and waxing bright
shone like stars that in the North
above the reek of earth leap forth." </p>
