Sorry, was away from the computer over the weekend...

Did someone mention "proofs"? I've emailed you my new home address Deagol! (no, really, I have. Send it on...)

Hello everyone.

A new date for the Moreton event should be announced next week I think, barring the unforeseen...

There were allsorts of reasons for the postponement, not just delays with Wheelbarrows at Dawn.

The book is written and is being proofed at the moment. There was a bit of a mad rush with deadlines approaching, but things are now proceeding at a more leisurely pace, with items like family trees and indexes the only things on my to do list now.

If you are at the Three Farthing Stone Smialmoot next month (27 March) you will get a preview and sneaky peek....

Khamul - I have a proof copy of Chapters 1-4 on my desk now, about 130 pages.... thought you might be interested!!!

I have just finished watching the online film "Born of Hope"

http://bornofhope.com/Watch.html

Like the "Lord of the Rings" films, I was surprised that the producers did not stick entirely to the 5 lines of text that Tolkien wrote about Aragorn's father and mother, but as the film is 1 hour and 10 minutes long that would be difficult.

I enjoyed watching it and it is free to watch

Thanks so much for posting Christopher and Baille's thoughts Wayne & Christina!

Also, to Jlong for sharing some additional documented thoughts from JRRT himself from other letters.

Max, enjoy your Fourth Class letter!

I enclose a merely secretarial letter. I am obliged to leave a large part of the letters to a part-time secretary; but I always re-read them before sending any reply

Meaning, we suppose, that he dictated some of his letters to a secretary (which he is known to have done), she typed them, and before posting he read them, as well as re-read the letters to which he was replying. This gave him the opportunity to add handwritten notes below the typewritten part.
