The work of J.R.R. Tolkien managed to produce one of my three favorite strategy games of all-time—1988’s War in Middle Earth (the other two are Fantasy Empires (1993) and Sword of the Samurai (1989)).  I burned many, many hours playing this game as a…

"Burke's Louisiana is haunted by the ghosts of murder victims crying out for justice, or at least to not be forgotten. The evil done by the gangsters, venal businessmen, and corrupt politicians that plague the state, stains and warps everything. Some villains even seem to reek of hellfire and sulfur. The Robicheaux books aren't paranormal thrillers or magical realism, but they have a fantastic (and fantastical) sense of place. Burke writes not just like he knows every back alley in New Orleans and dirt road of Iberia Parish, but the region's secret and forgotten history as well."

At some point even a “101” look at Tolkien has to consider the other Inklings.  I had read both the fiction and nonfiction of C.S. Lewis, but The Fellowship was the first book I read to really cover the other Inklings.  Ostensibly, the focus is on Lewis,…
