Is this true about Wilson and The Keep
So I was looking on imdb.com just now and found this post as a response to someone asking who/what Molasar is. I've never heard anybody mention anything like this on this board and since Mr. Wilson frequents this board I was curious if this was true...that is if you can actually decipher what is being said.
"I assume you read the original novel. If so, I presume you have picked up on the fact that Wilson was (and still is) a major fan of the Tolkien Ring Trilogy. (A major clue to this is in the reference to Glaeken's sword which is engraved with ancient runes. The same sword which he must use to kill Rasalom).
Wilson has in the past often referred to the "last surviving" human character in Mordor, from the "War of the Rings". The only such character I could gleen from this chapter would be the so-called "Mouth of Sauron". (This is the same character who was beheaded by Gimli, in the film version of "The Return of the King". But in the actual novel he removes himself from the Fellowship, unscathed). And apparantly survives as he he a long living survivor from the ancient contenent Numenor (Atlantis in Tolkien's mythology).
Wilson in this novel (as well as it's sequels) has referred to Molasar/Glenn (Rasalom/Glaeken) as HUMAN. Immortal, perhaps. But human nonetheless.
A not bad rip-off of Manly Wade Wellman's short story of 1944 entitled "The Devil Is Not Mocked", by the way.
