Fanfiction writer tries to sue JRR Tolkien (and it doesn’t go well)

Demetrious Polychron did in a poorly executed effort to protect his 2022 book “The Fellowship of the King.”
It’s a spinoff of the “Lord of the Rings” series by JRR Tolkien, and Polychron planned for it to be part one of seven in a fanfiction franchise.

  • All copies of “The Fellowship of the King” were ordered to be destroyed
  • Polychron was prohibited from any further fanfiction distribution
  • Amazon and the Tolkien estate received a total of $134,000 in damages
