The Leewit ...
...is a character from The Witches of Karres, a book
by James H. Schmitz. Though he is no longer with us, it is
thankfully still available from his publisher
Baen Books. If you haven't read it, you probably should.
If you don't thoroughly enjoy it, seek medical help.
Though Mr. Schmitz arguably lacked the intellect of Lewis
Carroll, he may have been as imaginative and probably
surpassed him in raw charm -- a highly underrated gift. His
creation of Maleen, Goth and of course the Leewit would alone
be enough to satisfy most writing careers.
You might think you're too old for this kind of thing, but you're
probably not. If you really are (bad luck!) you almost certainly know
someone who isn't -- and they'll love you for it.
If they can read, anyway.
As you'd gather from the book, the Leewit probably would not
bother maintaining a web page when there are so many more interesting
things to do and eat. We cannot expect to hear from her, but
hope she doesn't whistle us for putting this up. Since we don't plan
on giving her a bath or brushing her teeth, we're likely as safe as
anyone can be.
"That's right," said the Leewit.
