Congratulations! I believe you told me about this a very long time ago, but I might be inventing that in my mind. In any event, I look forward to reading it.

I see that not only do I have your 2 PMs, but two other PMs that people have sent me months ago that I never knew about. How embarrassing! They must think I am terribly rude! It's strange that I...

Apparently, it doesn't matter whether I respond or not, since I explicitly made a point of NOT responding to your last post (with difficulty, because my general policy is to always respond to people...

I think you meant "Carl" there, not "Doug".

Beyond that, I appreciate your defense. I frankly don't have the wherewithall to continue to engage with Galin about this. It gets to the point where...

Then I have no idea what it that you are suggesting.



Only Christopher could answer that. All we know is what the evidence that we have available tells us. And that is that Christopher choose...

Galin, if I understand what you are suggesting it is that Christopher decided to make a compromise by mostly using the Annals for this section so that he could include Uinen, but that substituted in...

Regarding Arien, I'm not sure why you are asking that. The edits that I identify regarding Arien are that two references to her beauty are removed from passages taken from the Annals, but there was...

Looking at the handy Table 1 of Arda Reconstructed, I see that I dated (based on Christopher's comments, of course) the first phase of the later Quenta to c. 1950–52, whereas I dated the Annals of...

Galin, I couldn't even begin to make a list of who I thought were "minor characters". Sorry.

It would be easy for me to say "yes, that's it" and let that be the end of it, but I'm not sure that I can say that it is that simple. Yes, many of the edits that affect the role of female...

No.

I believe that the edits that Christopher Tolkien was responsible for (though won't don't know to what extent Guy Kay contributed to them) had the effect of significantly lessening the role of...

Lindil, I'll look forward to hearing what you think of it. I'm glad that you enjoyed Michael's interview. I hope you saw his recent one with John Garth. He does a great job!

gondowe, to answer your question, no I did not have access to the original...
