This week, we delve into the inspiration for Harry Potter (and lots of other British fantasy stories) with the first half of TH White’s The Sword In The Stone in Dear Mr. Potter; in There And Back Again, we finally cast the One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom in chapters three and four of Book Six of The Lord of the Rings; we set aside our plans in order to discuss what makes a good fan, a good critic, and a good person in Story And Star Wars; and finally, we continue our new patron-exclusive Book Club discussion on Frank Herbert’s Dune.
