The Eagles are Coming!

The Eagles are Coming!, my essay on the power of fantasy storytelling and fairy tales is published in the new issue of Response magazine. It features a new, original illustration by Bryan Pollard of the eagles rescuing Frodo and Sam at the climax of The Return of the King.

    To add to my previous post–I got my first print issue yesterday and WOW, the artwork to “The Eagles are Coming” is really, really cool. The internet just doesn’t do it justice.

    Thanks for posting, it’s an issue that I needed today. :-). I really liked your “The Eagles Are Coming” and “The Hope Factor”. That’s all I’ve had time to read so far, but I’m planning on reading more.
