Musings on Tolkien and modern fantasy literature.
A very interesting interview/article indeed. Thanks for posting it, Doug. Some factual errors by reporter, not suprisingly, but some extraordinary statements by Christopher and Baille Tolkien.
Thanks Doug, a fascinating chance to hear from the elusive "best beloved" himself. The Tolkien monster is out of control: what more proof do we need than the fact that The Hobbit has been turned into a trilogy!I remember when my own father read me the Hobbit. I was about seven years old, back in the mid-60s. No films, no TV, no mercandising - just the words, and my imagination. That was how it was meant to be, that is what we've lost.BestRoss Smith
