Our old chum fantasy author Guy Gavriel Kay gives the eighth annual J.R.R Tolkien Lecture on Fantasy Literature.

When Christopher Tolkien needed an assistant to edit his father J. R. R. Tolkien’s unpublished work, he chose Kay, then a student of philosophy at the University of Manitoba. Kay moved to Oxford in 1974 to assist Tolkien in editing The Silmarillion.

Guy is best known for his Fionavar Tapestry, a trilogy of fantasy novels set in our contemporary world and the world of Fionavar. It is the story of five University of Toronto senior law and medical students, who are drawn into the ‘first world of the Tapestry’ by the mage Loren Silvercloak.
