Inklings was the name of a group of Oxford scholars and writers whose best-known members were J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. The German Inklings-Gesellschaft, founded in 1983, is dedicated to the discussion and dissemination of their works and of writers commonly associated with them and to the study of the fantastic in literature, film and the arts in general. The proceedings of the annual Inklings conferences are being published in yearbooks. This volume contains nine papers presented at the 2014 conference on Dark Visions – Margaret Atwood’s Imaginative Travels into the Regions of the Uncomfortable. The contributions deal with Atwood’s novels and also with the role of the North in literature at large. In addition, there are five general articles and numerous reviews.
