The subject of the narrator’s prize winning essay is loosely inspired by the master’s thesis submitted by David Holland (now David Holland QC) for the degree of LLM in the University of Toronto Law School in 1985, coincidentally the year of publication of The Summer Tree, the first volume of the Fionavar Tapestry. This is, of course, a blatant UofT Law School in-joke, but so, in the author’s opinion, are several chapters of the Fionavar Tapestry itself.
