2 seconds is all it would take to spell "deafeating" right.

antiquarian literature is 50% women writing novels about how stupid men can be, and 50% men writing memoirs that inadvertently prove the point

I love Old English. The term for webfooted birds was “Floaty-feet fowl,” and that is so much better!

I find it interesting that if a book is labeled "magical realism" it can be taken far more seriously (and win major literary awards, including the Nobel) than if a book is labeled "fantasy" or "fairy tale."

I love that a guy flying on the back of a firebird is stunned to see a woman sleeping in a field of flowers under a sky filled with stars.

"If you are writing something that you think might gather suspicion as a contradiction, put the opposing thoughts as closely together as possible. Your readers will assume you are not so dim as to do an about face right after stepping out of your doorway."

Undoubtedly people will read the books as a result of the movie, and that will be good. I am really just not that interested. But tell you what, Kat, if you go see it and tell me that it was not just a good movie as such but a good movie about Tolkien, I will go see it.

Kat, i have no doubt all the best bits have been used in the trailer. Having already suffered through PJ's Hobbit and the ST reboot (great cast, awful films), I am not sure I could watch another of my childhood idols mangled.
