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 <email@example.com>:
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?
