Convention appearances


"I did want to be involved in some sort of a Tolkien project and at that time it was the only game in town. The idea of doing it live 25 years ago was inconceivable"
― Peter S. Beagle on animation, Ringers: Lord of the Fans
"As for Saul Zaentz and The Lord of the Rings, I wrote and rewrote that script God knows how many times, eight or nine at least, for a consultant's fee with the understanding that when Part 2 came along I would be paid extra to compensate for the skimpy payment on Part 1. Well there never was a Part 2, and Saul Zaentz never felt morally obliged to live up to the promise he made."
― Peter S. Beagle on Saul Zaentz, Interview.
