Tolkien Updates

Apparently May is Tolkien month. I had no idea....

On Sunday, the short film The Hunt for Gollum was released and is available for viewing here. I just finished watching it, and it is not bad. It is worth taking a look.

On Tuesday, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun by JRR Tolkien and edited by his son Christopher will be released and it is up on Amazon for pre-orders. I have just added it to my wish list, and it will be part of my June Amazon order.

And last, but certainly not least, I am reading The Hobbit, and it will feature heavily on my blog over the next 2-3 weeks.

I am looking forward to your Hobbit posts as I have always felt that this book is D&D. Sure, some of the first elves are silly and need a sword to the gullet for singing absurd songs, but the meat of the adventure is dark and brutal.

Thanks for the encouragement. My first chapter analysis is up!
