Hello everybody. Having finally found a decent forum to join I am Ciaran. Intrigued by the whole works of JRR I could not avoid joining this forum. Anyway, I love medieval literature and am currently wrting my own stuff now also. A novel on the Anglo Saxon era bringing in courtly love, chivalry and honour, tragedy, significance of heathendom in Saxon times and the downfall of such qualities in modern day life. Also, I am on the point of publishing an epic Lay in Icelandic structure as an allegory on the troubles in Northern Ireland. The point I'm making is get them when they finally come out! I will no doubt post the titles when they are nearly ready (and when I think of a decent title). Yet I believe that I owe nearly everything (inspiration wise) to Tolkien.
