An hour long chat with the author of The History of 'The Hobbit' will take place Wednesday April 16th on WBSD - that's in Burlington, Wisconsin, so for the rest of us it is also streamed online at www.wbsdfm.com. Tolkien will not be the only subject of the discussion, as the announcement also goes into quite a bit of detail about Mr. Rateliff's prior work with Dungeons & Dragons and related RPGs. The host of the show, Stephen D. Sullivan, has written multiple crossover novels from various RPG universes.
John Rateliff's blog can be found at http://sacnoths.blogspot.com/
The Podcast for the show (after April 16th) should be available at http://www.zshare.net/audio/10314077f544297a/
