In this video we have a pretty solid one, cuz this comparison is between two of the biggest names in the fantasy genre both in terms of Movies and TV and in the bookshelves of course. This is the Battle of the “Big R’s”, that is, firstly, the father of epic fantasy–none other than J.R.R. Tolkien, of course–and his contemporary counterpart, George R.R. Martin. Now, before we say anything more, let me remind you that we have immense respect for both of these authors, as they both are masters of their field. Also before we get into the actual writing and lore of the Martin and Tolkien words, let’s talk about a tale less told–the writers’ own stories.
