Topic: new member

Hello. New member here-57 yr old mail with 2 yrs service in the USMC. Avid reader if not comprehender(the user name refers to the family dispute , years ago, between my daughter and myself over Harry Potter vs Tolkien- she's moved on- I'm too lazy to change the reference). Looking forward to reading and occasionally cotributing. As several of my favorite fiction series include the Flashman Papers, I'm looking to jump into the greatest blunder section. On the whole I prefer nonfiction to fiction but a good book always trumps a bad one. Thanks

Welcome to the forums, Melkor.

Looks like you were in about the time I joined up. Should have plenty of common remembrances.

Melkor is the original dark lord of middle earth, he who spawned all evil, neat that you'd call yourself that.

Lord of the Rings definetily looms over Harry Potter because the stories that are told in Epic Proportions.

Lord of the Rings is waaaaay better than Harry Potter. My opinion.
