  • I'm not sure if this would fit with what you have in mind--I only ever read the first part of this book by Tad Williams but it definitely has a mortal character who ends up in faerie (I either don't recall why or didn't get that far in the book): The War of the Flowers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_of_the_Flowers Ellen Denham On 1/20/15 12:49 PM, 'David Bratman' dbratman...

  • De-lurking to mention a publication, hopefully not too far off topic for this list as I believe the story is mythopoeic: My flash story, "The Mouths," came out in the Lightspeed Magazine special issue "Women Destroy Science Fiction" yesterday. I'm thrilled and humbled to be in the table of contents among some amazing writers. The story is a very short anthropological examination...

  • I'm currentl y pursing a doctorate in music and recently wrote a paper about Goethe and Schubert's relationship (or lack thereof) that dealt with, among other things, the subject of musical parody, e.g., writing a poem to the melodic for m of another. I kept thinking how Tolkien did this as well, such as the "Old Troll" song going to the tune of "The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night...

  • Just as a data point from having grown up in North Carolina--I've never heard anyone use "y'all" for second person singular. A person might say to another, "How are y'all doing?" meaning "how are you and your family doing?" The usage I've head is "you" for singular, "y'all" for plural (or maybe sometimes "you all,") and "all y'all" seems to be used occasionally by some for...

  • Belated thanks to David, Sarah, William, John, and anyone else I've missed who helped put my question in perspective for my upcoming panel on Tolkien at World Fantasy. Between your suggestions and what I've read in Tolkien's letters I feel like I'm (hopefully) armed to say some relevant things.

  • I've been reading these book suggestions with interest, because I'm scheduled to be on a panel at the World Fantasy Convention at the end of the month with the following topic. Note that I did not have any part in coming up with this topic or its wording: --- Why is There No Religion in Middle Earth? Lin Carter used to argue about this. Why are there no priests and temples in...
