The Geek and Inkwell was inspired by an admiration for the writers group of which J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were members - the Inklings.  These writers and others of their colleagues would meet to read each other's work and discuss it, as well as other works of literature, at a pub in Oxford, England called The Eagle and the Child.  I like to think that if I could time travel, I would visit in on that fellowship of imaginative minds while they were mulling over some of the greatest works of literature of all time while those works were still in their infant stages.

My goal is for The Geek and Inkwell to be your virtual village pub - where imaginative minds can discuss anything and everything related to film, literature, nerdy news, and more.  Welcome, and pull up a bar stool!
