Pipe How old was Legolas?(again)

I would like to present a theory that Legolas was a boy of about 9 years old when Smaug the Dragon descended on Erebor. This would make him about 252 year old at the time of the War of the Ring. ...

The Orcish leader of the Battle of the Five Armies was Bolg son of Azog. Azog had been killed by Dain 142 years previously. Not proof of immortality, but it does seem that orcs had longer lifespans...

Tolkien did indeed have 'cave-experience'. He spent four months in and out of trenches and underground bunkers during the Battle of the Somme. Why shouldn't he imagine strange peoples and...

I read LotR and the Hobbit aloud to three children ages 12 to 17. They especially liked any chapters about Gollum. They would often imitate his manner of speaking.

Sorry Bruce. My grandfather drove a horsecart, and he lost his arm in a sawmill when he was nine. Although I agree it is highly probable that Gandalf had laid aside his staff while in that...
