Did J. B. Phillips see C. S. Lewis after his death?

We shouldn't be that surprised by such an idea. After all, Dante appeared to his son after his death, revealing the hidden location of the final 13 cantos of the Paradiso. (This has always seemed to me to be the most likely of all "ghost stories" to be literally true.) More recently, the composer Gustav Mahler completed his 10th Symphony nearly 50 years after his death, using the hand of Derek Cooke.

I could point to many, many totally believable accounts of various saints appearing to people throughout the centuries, but decided to restrict myself here to artists or men of letters (such as C.S. Lewis).
