Just wanted to give you a heads up on one of the Barnes and Noble mags given out free every other month at any B&N. The sci fi fantasy one is entitled Explorations, just like other genre mags free at B&N, this one can be found at the scifi section of a B&N.
Anyhow, the Oct/Nov issue has an inter view with PJ, an excerpt from one of the upcoming movie book companions and a contest wtih ten questions which will put the contestant in the drawing for Sideshow Weta Statues, or a set of Games Workshop miniatures from their up coming games. I looked for a link on the B&N site and could not find one and the mag has no web referance address. Hopefully I can get you scans of this feature but I shall here include the questions and the mailing info where people can send in their answers.

2-How old was Frodo when Bilbo gave his farewell birthday party?
