Re: Change (was: (TFT) Jobs table: ...)

From my point of view, and Tolkein's, what Tolkein was writing was a history. Lieber and Vance aren't writing histories. If their protagonists don't think of it, orexperience it, it doesn't appear in the stories.
Quoting gem6868 <gem6868@verizon.net>:
you're "at odds" b/c you aren't really getting what I'm saying.

That's because you didn't say it. What you said was:

> I doubt he consulted or read Gies, or anyone else.

.. which is not so.
the case of Vance (like Wolf) he even presents words he's made up or
self-derived or altered their use, again without explanation.

Well, that's certainly different that Tolkein, isn't it?
