I'm interested in "The Tales That Really Matter" -- stories that mean something beyond what the characters experience. I'm not strictly a fantasy fan (sci-fi is a passion, as well). But there's no denying the power of LOTR.
I read the books in preparation for the films. The films are excellent (but by no means perfect) adaptations of the books. Plus, the films gave us Howard Shore's transcendent scores. Can't wait for the Hobbit films!
I'm thoroughly jealous of the Inklings.
Samuel Walters is a pen name -- speaking of which, I'd like to finish my book sometime this decade.
