      Trick or treat? Spooky Middle-earth
      J.R.R. Tolkien brushed most of the major Western holidays with his

      All the king's horses and all the king's men...
      This is the third in a series of articles exploring previously
      unpublished texts about Middle-earth. The 'Osanwe-kenta' text is
      closely identified with J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Orcs' essay and 'Quendi and
      Eldar'. But there may also be a connection with the much
      later 'Shibboleth of Feanor'.
