G'won,admit it. Some Tolkien fans are also 'Wizard of Oz' fans. MSNBC reports on a new series based on the 'Oz' books. One of the writers did 'Roswell' and the main guy Hayter did 'X-Men.' They're saying they want to give them the darker, more visceral feel of LOTR and the Narnia books, and approach it as though Dorothy and co. were historical figures... Sound familiar? [More]

Thanks to Lennie for that.
