Synopsis

Jared Lobdell takes the view that the realm of fantasy is the natural, if not inevitable direction fiction writing is headed. By Surveying and criticizing the authors that influenced J.R.R. Tolkien's great works and presenting contemporary authors like Stephen King, and Ursula Le Guin whose works have been impacted by Tolkien, Professor Lobdell identifies an interesting pattern in the evolution of fiction.
