Nine he gave to Mortal Men, proud and great, and so ensnared them. Long ago they fell under the dominion of the One, and they became Ringwraiths, shadows under his great Shadow, his most terrible servants. Middle Earth abounds in character both quaint and creepy; Gollum, Shelob, trolls and orcs, but perhaps none inspire quite the same shivers and chills as the Nazgul. [More]

"The rule of no realm is mine, neither of Gondor nor any other, great or small." Gandalf refused to use his power to control the free peoples of Middle Earth, but no race or collection of people can long survive without some means of government or authority, to maintain order, uphold justice and protect the weakest and most helpless members of the society.

"The treasure is likely to be your death, though the dragon is no more!" With these words Roc, the old raven, predicts grim times for Thorin and Company. Although Dain and the dwarves of the Iron Hills will soon arrive to aid their kin, they can hardly outnumber the host of men and elves now besieging the Lonely Mountain.

'A land was made for the Edain to dwell in, neither part of Middle-earth nor of Valinor, for it was sundered from either by a wide sea; yet it was nearer to Valinor ...

"The dragon is coming or I am a fool!" he cried. "Cut the bridges! To arms! To arms!" Thus the people of the lake-town, Esgaroth, are warned of their approaching doom. As Smaug vents his fury on these innocent villagers, it seems that nothing can save them from the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities. But things are never quite as bad as they seem. [More]

The question of questions. The question sages have pondered for decades. The question that has overturned book club meetings and caused riots on message boards. The Question of the Ages. No, it's not 'What's the Meaning of Life, the Universe and Everything?'. Nor is it 'Who shot JR?'. It's not even 'Where's the beef?'.
