you've gotta be kidding man!! obviously its J. R. R. Tolkien.. the greatest fantasy, folklore writer of all time... but most of the work we see now is arranged by his son christopher tolkien but published under j.r.r.tolkien's name... all the maps and illustrations of lord of the rings are also done by christopher tolkien

Oh you just got ahead of me man. I was hoping our friend in here was going to give me a prize for that ha, ha, ha, ha. well the question is nothing. But I could not understand the meaning of "without cheating" as if anybody has to refer to the cover of the book.

I would consider it very sad if someone didn't know who wrote the lord of the rings. it would be like not knowing who wrote romeo and juliet.

Just like everyone else has said, it was John Ronald Rohl Tolkien. I think he was a pretty good writer considering he was also an English professor and one of languages.

tolkien. In my personal opinion, the movies are better than the books. The whole walking down a street for 500 pages just isnt too appealing to me.

J.R.R. Tolkien - John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the high fantasy classic works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
I believe most of the people who've added "The Lord of the Rings" as an interest on myLot know it was written by J. R. R. Tolkien. On the same table as my computer I have 6 books written by Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King, The Hobbit, Silmarillion and Roverandom. I must admit I haven't read them yet (I've just bought them), but I'm looking forward to reading them.
