[page 20] _Rick Sneary, South Gate, Calif.:_ Regarding the Question of what @_The Lord of the Ring_@ is, let me quote from the d/j of my copy...that is, the 5th Impression by Geo. Allen & Unwin Ltd., which states: "As for the story itself, 'it's really super science fiction', declared NAOMI MITCHISON after reading the first part, _The Fellow- ship of the Ring_, 'but it is timeless and will go on and on. One takes it completely seriously: as seriously as Malory'". Me, I say it is the most wonderful Fantasy I ever read.
