For myself, I will bow out of this thread, since I don't find your comments on religion respectful.
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

Kirill, I think you misread my post . I know Tolkien (unitentionally) started the Fantasy genre and that LotR is fantasy. I really wasn't implying otherwise!Kirill Leonov wrote: Iolanthe, even if you see Tolkien as something much deeper than your average fantasy book, LotR still is what created the genre. It still is fantasy. And lack of depth, compared to Tolkien, doesn't mean the genre in itself is bad. Your average book generally lacks such depth, no matter which genre. Tolkien has high quality, is real literature, but still remains fantasy, since there is no contradiction; those are different categories.
