Tolkien interview, Brunner speech in scanned fanzine
Niekas #18 must be one of the most outstanding fanzines of the 1960s because of its 6-page transcript of Henry Resnik's telephone interview with J. R. R. Tolkien, followed by several more pages recounting a Tolkien Society of America meeting that Resnik attended.
The issue also includes a Worldcon speech by John Brunner, an essay on Heinlein and fascism, letters on topics including the outlook for Star Trek's second season, and more.
The Tolkien interview includes the Professor's confession of early interest in a particular element from Rider Haggard's She. Resnik didn't include this nugget when he drew on the interview for a 1966 Saturday Evening Post profile on Tolkien.
