April Showers Bring May Green Books!
With the wonderful help of a new Green Books assistant webmaster, WeeTanya, Green Books is off and running with a boatload of new May material!
Check out 15 new Q&A articles, including:
- Who has vision past the horizon’s edge? (This one with some spiffy math and physics calculations by Quickbeam!)
- Why would Galadriel encourage Arwen to marry Aragorn against her father’s preference?
- Why is the Shire “uncouth?”
May brings many wonderful brand new fan-written Moon Letters!
Turgon, Ostadan, Quickbeam, and Anwyn each have a new column this month. Anwyn’s Counterpoint takes a mild biographical look at Tolkien’s views on war, while Quickbeam’s Out on a Limb takes a more humanistic view of the same subject, exploring how he has learned from great writers like Tolkien how to deal with the oppressive cloud of war; Turgon’s Bookshelf details a huge stash of forthcoming Tolkien books for 2003; and Ostadan’s Lore and Letters deals with a problem of translation very dear to the hearts of Jackson fans!
Last but most certainly not least, it is the triumphant return of Tookish’s Ticklers! The Ticklers are loaded with humor submitted by you, TORn’s readers!
Look for a new Green Books update in June, and don’t forget to check out TORn’s very own book, The People’s Guide to J.R.R. Tolkien, available now in bookstores and at Amazon.com!Posted in Old Main News on May 28, 2003 by Anwyn
