Studies in Fantasy Literature: Issue #1
by Seele Brennt Publications

Contents include: 1. Holy Elven Light: A Religious Influence on The Lord of the Rings" by Aaron R. Davis. While Tolkien's own Catholic upbringing has been downplayed in the past, the certain influence of his devotely religious belief struction required examination. This essay is proud to be that examination. 2. Coming In From The Cold: 'Incursions of Outsideness' in Clark Ashton Smith's Hyperborea" by Steve Thompkins. While less popular than Smith's Zothique story cycle, Hyperborea bears closer examination -- a land that yields forth all things dark for scrutiny. 3. Sometimes There Is Nothing You Can Do: A Critical Summary of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere" by Jenifer D'Elia. As the title states, this is an exploration into Neil The Sandman Gaiman's suprisingly convoluted underground tunnel system known as Neverwhere. 4. "Michael Moorcock, PostModernism, and (not) Fantasy: A Primer" by Dr. Howard Morton. Emphasizing the subtle interplay of Moorcock's PostModern ideas within the themes, structures, and substance of his work, a reasonable argument and conclusion are formed regarding how Moorcock may be a classic within the genre but that he is likewise a product of rejection of some classic ideals.
