CS Lewis And Ian Fleming
Anderson's Dominic Flandry is comparable to Fleming's James Bond;
other Anderson characters address the same theological problems as Lewis' Ransom.
And we have also seen that many other diverse authors are equally comparable to Anderson, e.g., in historical fiction, alternative history, detective fiction, sociological extrapolation and cosmological speculation.
Lewis and Fleming in particular are remarkably dissimilar. However, Anderson's breadth of vision and imagination encompasses both a hedonistic secret agent and the ultimate questions about God and evil.
On that inspiring note, I must stop posting for a while!
