As long as Scott stays away from magic rings and epic quests with "fellowships" I'm not going to start describing it as Tolkienesque although i do see the similarities.[/quote:2t0nweef]

Exactly, there is a big, big difference between similarities (which most fantasy shares) and being Tolkienesque. Tolkienesque is a word that gets thrown around to label any epic fantasy. It is meant in a good way but it is very misleading and IMHO should only be used when the mood and such in some way reflects Tolkien as well. view post
