Book 8 – On Fairy Stories by J.R.R. Tolkein

Strictly one for fans and scholars, the essay itself only takes up 80 out of 300 pages. The rest consists of footnotes, an editor’s glossary, correspondence and the originated manuscripts.

I haven’t really digested what Tolkein is saying yet. One thing I’m sure of; he would have hated living in the present time.
