This is a series of posts talking about provocative topics. Most of them are not safe for work, as the internet goes, and quite a few might make you uncomfortable. As I believe literature to have an impact on readers of all ages and backgrounds I think it is essential to draw attention to important subjects. Reasoned discussion is welcome, trolls are not.
- Happy Birthday, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins
- Why J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis would never have been friends in the age of Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp
- Support Kickstarter project “BANDERSNATCH Goes Audio!!” today
- Why “The Lord of the Rings” coming in at no. 26 with the latest BBC Culture poll is a good thing
- Back to the Hobbits. Can it be true, Marty?
