J. R. R. Tolkien

When I am not involved in matters religious or scholarly, one of my favorite escapes is science fiction and fantasy literature or media. My favorite series is The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan.  The series focuses on the actions of four friends, pushed by circumstances from their little village into the larger world. They discover along the way that they are meant to play central roles in the coming Last Battle of the Ages.

More orcs

Though action-packed, Peter Jackson's Hobbit films have less of what made his Lord of the Rings movies work: character development, humor, interior drama.
