Not Tolkien, apparently, but Stephen Donaldson - at least according to this
article from the Bookseller: http://www.thebookseller.com/?pid=2&did=13285.
(Seems SD is about to published the first volume of the last quartet of the
Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, after a 25-year gap.) I haven't read him -
but I know some/most of you have. Did he add anything significant to the
Middle-earth mix? Enough to credit him with the invention of a genre?
