This site was awarded a Times Pick by the Los Angeles Times on 24 November 1998, and is frequently recommended as a top Lewis reference source by the prominent evangelical magazine Christianity Today. For example, Christianity Today online, under the article C.S. Lewis Superstar (11-23-05) noted in the midst of a long list of Lewis links: "Still hungry for more? You'll probably never have the time to read everything linked at the C.S. Lewis Mega-Links page." That's the (really) old name for this web page.
