      And there's been a Tolkien "cult" (fully justifying the word) in Russia for
      some time. Perhaps because they've been starved of imaginative or
      metaphysically concerned literature for so long, the response of Russian fans
      to Tolkien is more intense in its passion and make-believe than anything seen
      in the West since the late '60's.
