Re: Book of material written by Tolkien edited by Carl Hostetter

Stephen Oliver's version from the BBC Radio play is lovely, particularly when sung by Bill Nighy (as opposed to the version on the "Music" recording sung by a trained baritone) but I won't share here as I'd hate to influence Jude's version.

Re: Asimov's "Foundation" coming to TV

There's also a story element in the first two episodes that I believe was taken from Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Mars, but it all works well together.
