Fantastic (magazine) November 1976

Subject: Fantastic (magazine) November 1976
by Morgan on 2012/1/31 5:37:49

Just wanted to give a heads up on a quite obscure magazine (at least for us non-Americans!): Fantastic: Sword & Sorcery and Fantasy Stories November 1976 (Vol. 25, No. 5). My copy arrived today, and it can be found for what I regard as decent prices at Amazon.com (currently it seems like no copies are listed on eBay):

http://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Sorce ... TF8&qid=1328011809&sr=8-3

It includes the article "White Wizard in Tweeds" by L. Sprague de Camp, upon which he based the chapter "Merlin in Tweeds: J.R.R. Tolken" included in his Literary Swordsmen and Sorcerers.

As in the book chapter, the article in Fantastic provides a few quotes attributed to Tolkien.
