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.

"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>
That which once was shall be again!
