Welcome to the new Chesterton and Friends blog. What is it? We'll find out when people start coming and, hopefully, commenting.

For starters, it's dedicated to G.K. Chesterton and his "friends." We construe "friends" broadly to mean his acquaintances during his life and the writers he influenced. The list is potentially huge, but here are a few: Belloc, Baring, Lewis, Tolkien, Dawson, Barfield, Knox, Muggeridge. And what the heck: Wells, Shaw, Wilde.

Come frequently for doses of quotes, ancedotes, and commentary. We welcome and encourage comments!

Great list. I'd love to see a dinner party with all these wits sitting together. I'd sip a beer or two and just listen!
