- That is really interesting. Another good LOTR site is
Speculative Fiction for the Web (Winner of the PlanetDoom "Cool Site Award")
Author of "Ily's Dream", available at www.roxybooks.com, Barnes and Noble
(www.BN.com), or Powells (www.powells.com).

Here is something Sir Ian says in his "Grey Book" notes of March (the
latest) which ties in with MFA discussion of Lisa Goldstein's DARK CITIES
"The Bag End designs could not be bettered. Their colours are warm with lots
of wood and signs of industry, writing and cooking and overeating. Simply,
they are hobbity and to me very familiar. They are in accord with my own
untidiness and need to be comfy. The kitchen table where Frodo pours the tea
is akin to the family kitchen of my childhood. Yet it is all with a
difference because Bag End feels like a hole in the ground. Why are
subterranean books popular with children? Besides The Hobbit there are The
Wind in the Willows, Knock Three Times! and, of course, Alice."
Not familiar with KNOCK THREE TIMES, but the webpage includes a coverpage.
Bet you could look it up on amazon.co.uk.

confronted by three other types in medievalish clothing.
