J R R Tolkien
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was a major scholar of the English language, specializing in Old and Middle English. Twice Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford, he also wrote a number of stories, including most famously "The Hobbit" (1937) and "The Lord of the Rings" (1954-1955), which are set in a pre-historic era in an invented version of the world which he called by the Middle English name of Middle-earth.

A short volume, and interesting to see what makes Tolkien tick when it comes to myth and storytelling and there's even a bit of insight into his friendship with C.S. Lewis. Struggled to get through the "Leaf" story though. Good for writers, I reckon.
