You can post these examples in the Members Forums which are only accessible by Members of the Forum, not people who have not logged in or just registered users, Wayne and Christina are Members so would be able to see your examples.

I'm pleased that this is what HarperCollins are doing, any ideas about the colour of the dustjacket for the hardback index?

When did Tolkien first get a secretary to answer his mail, I always thought it was 1965 which is the year after this letter?

They have changed the text to 'based' now instead of 'born' in the article.

The gates appear to be next to the Clock Tower in the university and I am guessing that is what they are really talking about, as this regularly comes up as inspiration for one of "The Two Towers".

If only Tolkien had had an imagination he would not have needed all these inspirations.

Here are some more attempts at defining Tolkien's inspiration in Birmingham.
