Paul Krugman finally drops the source for the line he often cites about J.R.R. Tolkien and Ayn Rand!

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

My question for Kung Fu Monkey is, What is a “serial hobbyist”? It sounds awesome and fun.
