Unpublished C.S. Lewis manuscript Found

Read about it all by clicking here.
From the article:
"The article Beebe wrote documenting his discovery, “Language and Human Nature Manuscript Fragment Found: C. S. Lewis On Language and Meaning,” will be published next year in the Journal Seven: An Anglo-American Literary Review."
For information on this publication, see our Nexus section (right hand column), VII.
I have seen no news on when the manuscript will be published, but its publishing is mentioned by Beebe.
