  • By Philip W. Helms and David L. Dettman
  • American Tolkien Society
  • 1993
  • Marquette Hunnewell
  • letter-sized velo-bound chapbook
  • 26 pp.

"Includes essay “Shape Changers in Tolkien’s Middle-earth” examining the antecedents in literature and legend of Tolkien’s shape changers - Beorn, the giant bear-man, Sauron, the Lord of Werewolves, Luthien and Beren - tracing the types of shape changer, the means of transformation, and the names Tolkien gave them: wargs, werewolves, and vampires. Also included: “Ulf’s Saga,” the story of an early Man, captured and enslaved by Sauron, transformed into a ravening werewolf in Sauron’s horde. Freed first by the powers of Luthien, then by Earendil, he becomes an outlaw with a price on his head, cast out by his own people, hunted by Sauron’s armies, but true to his first mission - the defense of Beleriand." (From an American Tolkien Society catalog)
