Tolkien and the Silmarillion by Clyde Kilby



This a nice, short biographical account of Clyde Kilby’s experiences trying to help Tolkien finish the Silmarillion. Not much work was accomplished but much biographical knowledge of Tolkien can be gleaned from Kilbys observations, especially events in the middle 1960s. For example, Kilby reports that Tolkien firmly believed that the Ace paperback edition was the factor that made the Lord of the Rings so popular, especially in the US. One of the best passages is when Kilby first meets Tolkien. He apparently knew Tolkien’s physician and asked him how he could possibly meet the great professor. The doctor friend said, “Just go up to the house and knock on the door. He’s not doing anything.” The book is out of print but probably easy to find from the secondary book sources.

THE SWORD OF EOWYN

  A very high quality, beautiful sword. This would make a great decorative gift for the shield maiden in your life, or someone who just loves equestrian design.


LORD OF THE RINGS JEWELRY

  Now that the movies have largely run their merchandising course, this may be the best time to purchase high quality jewelry at discounted prices. Use these as gifts for years to come.


LORD OF THE RINGS GAMES!

  It appears that any game that could possibly have a Lord of the Rings theme has been produced. These include Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Backgammon and Dominoes.

 

LORD OF THE RINGS FIGURES

  Figures from the movies include a large action figure series. There are separate figure sets and color schemes for each movie. The highest quality figures were made by Sideshow WETA. Although these are expensive, they sell out quickly and will likely keep their values.
