Classics of western literature av Berkeley Breathed

Now wait for last year av Philip K. Dick

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
Isaac Asimov

'Wonderful ... a heady mix of Flann O'brien, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe and Ken Campbell, but with an inbuilt irreverence and indelicacy that is unique - and makes it the long-awaited, heavy smoker's answer to The Lord of the Rings'
Time Out om Robert Rankin

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
William Gibson

The three-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
Robert Heinlein

'An urban myth. Like the dyslexic devil worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.' - Robert Rankin (Raiders of the Lost Car Park))

Wikipedia om Tolkien fandom

Jeg har bladd litt i Wikipedia og det er som om å innta narkotisk stoff. Jeg visste ikke at visste så lite om geologi eller jordbruk i mellom-europa. Tilslutt havnet jeg her.

En riktig god gjennomgang av Tolkien fandom er det. Det som gjør Wikipedia vittigere enn Encyklopedia Brittanica er uttalelser som denne:

A special kind of "new fandom" centers around fangirls who tend to idolize the male stars of the movies in a rather unhealthy way: most notably Orlando Bloom ("Legolas"), despite the fact that the role is not a major character.

De jenter jeg kjenner med schvære Orlando Bloom plakater på veggene ser ikke ut til å bry seg det minste om at Legolas er en sekundær karakter i hele tatt.

[Listening to: 1 of 16 Nightfall - Isaac Asimov - (44:17)]
