Tolkien Blogs: One Feed to Find them All

Now that the movies are finished, the old-timey Tolkien fans can come out of hiding. This feed is more about thoughtful posting than shrieking fandom, so all you legolas fans, you'll have to go somewhere else to get your fix ;)

The list of included blogs isn't nearly as full as I'd like it to be. There should be ME cooking blogs, blogs about elves, blogs about costume making, or local entmoots . . . so if you're a fan, and you know of a blog I missed, let me know on the comments here or the feed's email address.

This is a great idea. I will add you to my links. As one of the old time Tolkien fans, as much as I have enjoyed the movies I am glad the Peter Jackson madness is over, so we can back to what is most important... how great the books are!

I know this blog is not entirely based on Tolkien and his works, but I have been publishing some papers written about Tolkien from 1997. These papers cover his life, some of the themes of the books, and how Tolkien has influenced modern fantasy fiction, including some quotes by best-selling fantasy authors. You might like to check it out and consider adding it to your very extensive list of Tolkien blogs. By the way, I think your listing of blogs on all things Tolkien is a great resource. I have been enjoying a number of the links you've provided.

Here is the link to the above-mentioned blog, titled Kanteker's Craft. It is a blog on writing.

http://kanteker.blogspot.com/

Here is the official description for the post as it appears in a number of blog directories:

My name is Michael I. Colwill and this is my first attempt at a blog. I am an aspiring writer, avid reader, husband, and father. Together we will discover what shape Kanteker's Craft will take, as I am not entirely sure myself. Enjoy the postings and links, and please tell your friends about me.

Kanteker's Craft is a blog where I will submit my personal writing in various forms for your enjoyment. You are welcome, even encouraged, to submit feedback in the form of questions or critiques. The form will continue to be malleable as the blog evolves, including such elements as book reviews, personal opinions, essays, fiction, and other articles that are related to books and/or writing.

Hello, I thought the following news might be of interest to your readers!

Non-profit Oak Tree Fine Press is selling the following item on ebay to raise money for children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS.

First edition deluxe copy of The Children of Hurin signed by Alan Lee.

ALAN LEE has also SKETCHED BY HAND a central character from the Children of Hurin onto the first page of this book. The artist - who won an Oscar for his work on the recent Lord of the Rings film trilogy - has illustrated J.R.R. Tolkien’s works for many years and the opportunity to own an original signed work by him is rare.

Further information and a link to the ebay auction is available on the Oak Tree Fine Press blog at www.otfp.blogspot.com

Kind regards,

Hello tolien lovers,

I'm a huge fan of the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien and a great collector.

On my blog LOTR you will find a lot of info and pictures about my collection of LOTR items.

But you have to speak a little bit the "Langue de Molière" as the blog is in french.

I hope to see many of you there.

thanks

I've been blogging about Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings for a couple of months but recently decided to do every post in english too (that's why there's only a few in English). I write about the books, events and my personal experiences and a bit about the upcoming films :)
