Hi Deagol,

with the move, the banner that was running up top for your site was no longer present (it was BiblioBanner.gif). I pointed to your main website title banner for now, let me know if you have a better banner url for me to refer to.

Your site looks great!

I found the Chronology easier to read in longer reading sessions and it was quite surprising just how busy Tolkien was. With so many commitments it is amazing that so much material was written regarding Midle-earth. It certainly challenges the notion that Tolkien procrastinated too much and should have produced more. It also made it easier than HoME to understand what Tolkien was working on and in what order.

As for the Readers Guide; I have so many notes of essays to read and books to check out and I found it was better to read it in smaller bites (3 or 4 entries at a time) especially before going to bed.

So many questions answered, but opening many, many more.

What a fascinating article on the animated Hobbit. It makes me want to rush down to Reading to see what A&U had to say about it all!

The Companion and Guide is proving to be very useful. Especially the Chronology. Finding out what Tolkien wrote to Allen & Unwin and when, proved to be very useful when I was trying to work out when the various proof copies of LotR were produced.

Browsing through the 'Works Consulted' section at the end throws up a lot of references that I really 'must' track down. I can see why it took Hammond & Scull so long to research and write the books.

I've never seen a second hand copy of Rayner's Remembrancer for sale. If you would just like a photocopy of the text, I can send you one, drop me an email.

TolkienBooks.net is back in action. Three weeks just to move to a new host! I hope it will be worth it.

For those interested (like me) in the Snyder adaptation of The Hobbit, here is an excerpt from Gene Deitch's book, How To Succeed In Animation (Don't Let A Little Thing Like Failure Stop You!), quoted in Animation World Magazine:
