Meagan Logsdon, Book Reviewer

Meagan Logsdon is an aficionado of Russian literature, ancient and medieval Christianity, and all things Inklings—particularly J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis’s lesser-known peer, Charles Williams. Vibrant characters, prose that sings, and lofty ideas attract her more than anything else. In addition to book reviews, she also writes her own fiction, which tends to blend myths, mysticism, and the metaphysical. Her first novel is in the works.
