Posting on Feb. 14, 2019, is almost 2,000 words longer, more information, including about Charlie W. Starr's article on the writing "On Bolshevism" and "Mythonomy." The post of Jan. 1, 2019, is more than a thousand words longer, which is now my standard for updates. It includes a note from 1928, when Charlie Starr states that Lewis wrote the fragment "Mythonomy." It also contains notes from a seven-day trip that Warren took in June 1938 in his boat, the Bosphorus. Also other minor changes. I have to put these notes here, because the Yola software is not working correctly. The post from Dec. 18, 2018, includes, among other things, some notes on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

Sierra Leone

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, May 22, 2015
This updated version contains information about the little known tour of duty by Warren Lewis in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Hitherto very little has been known about such service, which concluded on March 23, 1922. This entry includes information from his diary during January and February of 1922. There follows a gap in Warren's diary, which continues on August 14, 1922. This two-month entry contains very little of interest and certainly nothing about C. S. Lewis, not even the mention of a letter from Warren to Jack. Some day there will be more interest in the life of Warren, which will supplement my 2009 article in The Chronicle of the Oxford C. S. Lewis Society (now the Journal of Inklings Studies).

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 488 in number, one more than the previous version because of the addition of the brief "Undergraduate Criticism" from 1960) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on March 18, 2017, includes works listed in the bibliography of Adam Barkman's C. S. Lewis & Philosophy as a Way of Life. It also includes the recently discovered (by Christopher Marsh) "A Christmas Sermon for Pagans."
