No Nobel for Tolkien
We know how amazing and well-considered the Nobel peace prize choices are. If you've ever wondered how the Nobel prizes in literature are awarded, note the discovery that J.R.R. Tolkien
was blackballed, despite a recommendation by C.S. Lewis. Tolkien was denied even a nomination for consideration, because his work "has not in any way measured up to storytelling of the highest quality."
