Peep above the parapet

Post#1 » Tue Jun 14, 2005 5:11 pm

Hello all,

I have been slaving away for the last 12 months working on my website - An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography - www.tolkienbooks.net - Now I think it is time to peep above the parapet and see what else is happening in the online Tolkien community.

I discovered The Hobbit back in 1981 and The Lord of the Rings soon after, and have been hooked ever since. I have been looking around for more writings by JRRT ever since - the more you look and dig around the more you find!

Waiting for The Return of the King to be published in 1955 must have been a killer - having to wait 12 months to find out if Sam would rescue Frodo. I read The History of Middle-earth series as it was published, which was great - the sense of anticipation as each volume was announced was wonderful.

I am not a fan of rings anymore, especially gold ones... there was this unfortunate incident with my cousin... I don't like to talk about it though.
