To me, that points at the "canonicity" issue, and if we're going there, then all bets are off, and anything is possible.



Yet, the Silmarils are consistently written as being important to a...

I havenít examined this thread thoroughly enough to know if this quote has been added already, but it seems to lay the matter to rest.

Hm. I guess the Internet really doesn't forget! :eek:

I thought my pic was there at one time, but I could be mistaken. It's here on the forum anyway.

Welcome, Nikolasha!
I also credit my father with introducing me to Tolkien, though with me, it was The Hobbit and LOTR that I read first, with the others coming much later.

This question is, of course, open-ended, like the Balrog "wings" discussion, and the nature of Tom Bombadil.

Inziladun, as was his wont, wandered into the Downs first thing in the morning. He feared no Great Plague, as he walked under the virtue of Moderna.

It doesn't say specifically in my Smith/Giles paperback, but I also have the 1966 Tolkien Reader with PB illustrations, and they are indeed the same.

Well! I have to confess it was only around five years ago that I read this story for the first time. I got it with a paperback also containing Smith of Wooten Major.

As I get older, I find myself treasuring Tolkien's works all the more, and becoming rather protective.
