Article on The One Ring.net - Christopher Tolkien has resigned as director of the Tolkien Estate. This could change 'everything' to quote.

I got the news from his Facebook, lol, he was very excited!

Royd Tolkien just confirmed it on his twitter account. No details other than that.

I should think they'll have actors falling over themselves for this. If it's done well the fandom will go boom!

The One Ring.net is a good place to get the latest.

I found the link. It all seems very vague atm. I look forward to hearing more once they've got news on story, etc.

Reviews For The Crier

I'd forgotten how much I loved this little character piece. Reading it now, it feels like a preview into the line of thought that spawned Dawn, though it works beautifully by itself too. The glimpses of Orc-culture you give us are fascinating; I think you're still the only writer in the fandom to deal with them like this, and even though I've been reading you for years it's still refreshing and exciting.

I love this :) A very interesting orc's point of view. She seems almost human and I was not sure if she was definitely an Orc till the end, although I was fairly sure.

Author's Response:

Thanks! I guess that's kind of the point, really, to question how "human" she is or isn't (and by extension how "human" Orcs are). I'm glad you liked it. :-)

This is a fascinating glimpse of Orc culture, and one where they are much more three-dimensional and sympathetic than usual.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Author's Response: You're very welcome, Alquien. I very much enjoy reinterpreting certain parts of Tolkien's world and Orcish culture is one of them. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-)
