Christopher Tolkien Dies

Today I just want to mark the sad death of Christopher Tolkien. His father’s works have always been among my favourites, and I have fond memories of getting Dad to read parts off The History of Middle-Earth to me in my teens. It was always interesting to see how his father’s writing evolved and developed over time. The news was confirmed on Thursday by the Tolkien Society, which described him as “Middle-earth’s first scholar”. He was 95.
