The Inklings is one of the most famous groups of authors in the fantasy genre, mainly because of some of its legendary members:

-J. R. R. Tolkien: arguably the most famous fantasy writer ever, author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.
-Clive Staples Lewis: better known as C. S. Lewis, author of the Chronicles of Narnia.
-Charles Williams: writer, editor and poet, a major figure in Christian fantasy.

Meetings of the Inklings took place in Lewis's rooms at Magdalen College in Oxford, mainly between 1939 and 1949 (right before the completion of Lord of the Rings). The members read works in progress out loud for each other. These works were then analyzed and criticized by the members. The meetings of the Inklings were a major influence on both Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia.
