Greetings all.

I am going to be in South Africa for a couple of weeks later in the year and plan to go visit Bloemfontein. I know Tolkien was only there until he was three and it does not hold as much significance as various UK Tolkien places do. I just wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction of any relevant sites for a Tolkien ‘pilgrimage’.

Seeing the photos of Trotter’s nice bookshelf made me think to ask the people on this forum; How do you arrange your bookshelf?

I go for the special, valuable, signed editions on the top shelves and the cheap, insignificant books on the bottom.

I would like to see a ‘super deluxe’ of ‘letters’.

I think that the editing of J R R Tolkien’s work should cease after Christopher Tolkien. As Elwë said “He is simply the authority when it comes to his father's writing”. Also, if they can’t help themselves, I don’t know if a Tolkien would be the best editor. It should not be a birth right but a question of capabilities.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was released an autobiography by Christopher Tolkien. A ‘super deluxe’ edition would be brilliant. Leather bound, 100 copies, signed…

Tolkien and the Moberly–Jourdain incident

Hi all.

On the wikipedia page for the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident', at the bottum of the 'Aftermath' section it reads "The incident is said to have exerted an influence on J. R. R. Tolkien's views and work.".
In the bibliography it references 'Flieger, Verlyn (1997), A Question of Time: J. R. R. Tolkien's Road to Faërie, Kent State University Press .'

I have not read this referenced book yet and cant get my hands on a copy at the moment. Can somebody shed light on how this exact event influenced Tolkien.

Thank you in advance.
Loonka.
