Greetings, Quickbeam here…
The doldrums of winter are upon us, but I and my fellow Green Bookers Turgon & Anwyn are still hard at work, shedding light within the dark places. Today we unearth fifteen new Questions & Answers, prompted by our ever-so-curious readership. These and many more are just a click away:
- Where did the evil spider Ungoliant come from?
- Did Gandalf have a chance pitted against the Witch-king?
- How does Frodo & Bilbo’s birthday match up on our Gregorian Calendar?
- Why did Tolkien mention “stars” so much, with such reverence?
And dear readers beware! Yours truly recently had his 31st birthday, just a few hours shy of Elijah Wood himself. I promised to mark the occasion by getting an extraordinary Tolkien tattoo (the design of which will remain secret but I provide a hint: think of fiery letters). I have NOT chickened out on that promise, but unfortunately it has been delayed a few weeks. Have faith, I will go under the tattoo artist’s needle and post the shocking photos soon enough.
Much too hasty,
