- Jun 14, 1999Welcome to the new participants, "hi" to Diane, and an introduction.
I'm Mary Stolzenbach, more than middle-aged, residing in Brentwood Tennessee,
a 20 or 25 yr member of the Mythopoeic Society and a new member of this List.
I hope our new members will seriously consider coming to the Mythcon this
summer in Milwaukee, where our beloved authors will be discussed morning,
noon and night, with a special focus on Tolkien this year. I don't know a
more fun way to spend a weekend.
If anyone's interested, I just came across a mega-site on the planned
three-film live-action trilogy of LORD OF THE RINGS. This is apparently a
quite serious project.
The URL is http://ringbearer.org/
Some of us of course find =no= film adaptations adequate, but there are some
interesting pages of art with their conceptions of certain scenes, an
interesting page of possibilities for casting, and a discussion board for
those who want to pitch in.
Since the subject seems to be leaning towards Tolkien, what about a
discussion of him during the weeks to come? I'm just about ready to start a
re-read of LOTR in preparation for the Con, and looking forward to it =very=
For more discussion of Lewis, see also Mere Lewis web page at:
where you can sign on to the MereLewis list.
Also, Mythies like to discuss recent fantasy which is, or may be, in the
tradition of the Inklings.
