13653RE: [mythsoc] Tolkien on Film
- Jan 24, 2005Well, any publicity is good publicity, they say... Shea's own article
doesn't really cast the films as "great adaptations," more as just a
fact of life we have to get used to. For those of you on the list who DO
think they are great adaptaions, I want to assure you that the essays
run about half and half pro and con, so there's something for everyone!
But it's great to see the book being noticed! I just got my copies
Friday (and to those of you on the list who were contributors, they're
on their way to you). They look great, and I think the Mythopoeic Press
has done a job we can be proud to be associated with.

... But Shea describes the book as consisting of essays "on these great
film adaptations," and his use of the word "great" makes me wonder if
he's read the rest of the book. Of course I haven't read the rest of
the book either (I haven't received a copy yet), but I know what I said.
