Hi folks

Does anyone know if:
- Mr Bliss was ever published as a paperback?
- The End of the Third Age (the excerpt from Sauron Defeated) was ever published as a hardback?

I've emailed HarperCollins, but (as you would expect) not had a reply.

Thanks

Hi folks

I'm trying to obtain a copy of Richard E Blackwelder's "Tolkien Phraseology". I have emailed Marquette, but not had a reply. So - can anyone here help? Do you have a reliable contact at Marquette? Or do you (wonder of wonders!) have a copy for sale? Or one which you could copy for me?

Thanks

"The great Mongol hordes were an inspiration to J.R.R. Tolkien, who was writing his whimsical series of novels at the same time as Lamb was working on this. His Lord of the Rings was in fact a rosy pastiche based fancifully on the very times that Ghengis and his hordes conquered Europe as far as Poland. Inasmuch as you can line up historical facts with Tolkein's fairy world, you might say that the orcs are generally the Mongols and Muslims invading from the east and south, Minas Tirith was the city of Byzantium, Osgiliath was the ruins of Rome, Rohan was the Germanic peoples, and Aragorn was partly borrowed from the Emperor Frederick. Numenor was the ancient Romans, and the Shire was, of course, Merry Olde England."

Are you looking for one Wellinghall? I have one kicking around with a few loose pages. I didn't pay much more for it than you paid for that 1978 dummy copy of yours!

That 'signed' Tolkien Reader looks like a load of tosh.
