See, as I've said elsewhere, there are a few errors or out of date facts in the Silmarillion. which is not to denigrate the book or young Chris. The one responsible for this is Death, who took the Master away before he had time to finished it.
I hope that, just like Niggle, J.R.R.Tolkien found the completed version of his Silmarillion upon his arrival in heaven. That it read just as he had always imagined, filled with all the corrections and updates that he had been unable to add during his lifetime, and which his son missed before the earthly version was published. :angel:
I wonder Frodo my dear fellow, if you would very much mind postThreadIDying things up before you go? Collect all my notes and papers, and my diary too, and take them with you, if you will. You see, I haven’t much time for the selection and arrangement and all that.
but who is to say that before finishing his work he wouldn't go back to what is said in the Silmarillion again?? (he DID change his mind about things quite often really)
So IMHO it's not always what H.O.M.E series says that is the right one.... (i've noticed that you refer to that one a lot Findekano)
To me the Silmarillion is a great book, and until JRR himself tells me he really meant to change all it says i think i will keep on beliveing what it says!
Sorry if this is sounds offending to anyone who's researched HOME-series a lot, it is in no way intended that way it is just my personal opinion!!
Tolkien said on several different occaisions that he was Orodreth's son-or do you choose to belive a old, long discarded idea? Thats fine.
