Spring Cleaning in Green Books!
3/20/00, 16:11 EST - Quickbeam
Spring and "Green" go hand-in-hand, even here at TheOneRing.net. It is my pleasure to announce the following new items that are stirring at the Green Books:
Turgon has a terrific new article in his "Bookshelf," giving us an eagle's eye view of Tolkien publications for 2000. This is your *first* advance word of new paperback editions of Tolkien's works on both sides of the Atlantic! Click here to read more.
Our "Testimonials" is now called "Tributes." More fitting, I think... Read how the Professor inspired the lives of other fantasy authors and historians such as Urusla K. LeGuin, Sean Stewart (Clouds End and Nobody's Son) and world-class loremaster Douglas A. Anderson (The Annotated Hobbit). Even the evil wizard Saruman has a brief comment about meeting JRRT face-to-face!
Our very special staff illustrator, Mia, recently travelled to Oxford with the "Tolkien Eccentric Unusual Nut Cases" and has shared her Pilgrimage with us. This terrific photo-essay has 36 images and her wonderful first-person account! Visit Tolkien's past and stop by 20 Northmoor Road where Tolkien wrote The Hobbit.
There's plenty more as we at Green Books explore the WORDS and WORLD of Tolkien. Thanks to all for being part of our ever-growing readership!
Much too hasty,

Music: Music for the Hobbit Soul
3/17/00, 23:16 EST - Xoanon
FYI to all Tolkein fans. Kevin Henry, a talented musician from Michigan, has just released a new musical rendition of The Hobbit. It's a great way to introduce people of all ages to the story. It's a mix of folk, blues with a hint of a Southern rock feel. The lyrics remain perfectly true to the story line. Check out the website (complete with MP3 excerpts) at www.warmweathermusic.com
The Dominion Newspaper in Wellington interviewed Sir Ian...

'This is the craziest film ever made. It's the most ambitious film ever made anywhere in the world, technically. On any one day there are four camera crews with Jackson, dashing around the sets. He's absolutely calm. If you want to know what a hobbit is like, meet Peter Jackson.'
NZers should also be proud because the bulk of the people working on the film are 'born and bred here....If the film works, it will be because it is a NZ film and not because it was shot here.'
Asked if he feels an affinity with Gandalf, he says: 'Well, I like travelling, he likes travelling, he likes walking and getting about. He likes people and he certainly likes hobbits. I think he also likes the settled life, the cosy life...so I'm for that. He's ordinary and, at times, rather frail. He loses his temper and he smokes, which he probably shouldn't. I go for that side of the man.'
Thanks for Tiggy for that update!
Happy St. Pat's Day!
