I bought it recently, and have read about a quarter of it. So far, it is interesting, but not startling.

I'll post a fuller review when I have finished it.

Has anyone read this book published last October (in paperback, the HC came out in 2006)?

From the publisher: "Leonard S. Marcus's incisive interviews range over questions of literary craft and moral vision as he asks thirteen noted fantasy authors about their pivotal life experiences, their literary influences and work routines, and their beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives"

From School Library Journal review: "In the process, he uncovered fascinating revelations about where writers' ideas come from and the themes that the authors deal with. One common thread is homage to J. R. R. Tolkien: Susan Cooper took a class from him; Madeleine L'Engle devoured the three LOTR volumes in as many days; and Ursula LeGuin returns to the novels again and again. However, Philip Pullman can find little in the works now that resonates for him."

In the slow slog for getting Facebook integrated with TCG, I have added a "like" button on the homepage in the upper right corner (just below the twitter button).

Clicking on this button will post to your facebook profile that you 'like' TCG. TCG will not see your Facebook credentials, your profile information, or any other personal information - that is all handled by Facebook themselves.

Please 'like' TCG. (If you like this site, of course!) Please let me know if the button doesn't show up for you (it took more than a day to get it to show up in IE, other browsers had no problems with it). Please leave feedback of any kind on Facebook and TCG!

Why? Because 500 million people use Facebook, and some of them are Tolkien fans who don't know about TCG yet. Every person who 'likes' TCG means that they share this interest with their Facebook friends who may drop by.
