The Notion Club Papers (NCPs) is an unfinished (posthumous) novel by JRR Tolkien. The Notion Club was a fantasy version of The Inklings. My overview of NCPs is at: http://notionclubpapers.blogspot.com/2012/07/a-companion-to-jrr-tolkiens-notion-club.html. I was winner of the Owen Barfield Award for Excellence 2018.

A random thought about NCPs
There is, as it stands - as it comes to us, a
gratuitous quality to the Notion Club Papers. Where is it coming from?
Where is it going? It hasn't found its place. Yet it isn't a story. It is about things - almost like an essay.
