Well uh...


In the last couple of years, I've never seen that comment or those citations! Everyone always referred to &quot;spawning&quot; or to various things Tolkien said (I think in his letters) regarding the social nature of Orcs.

First time I ever heard they were made of stone!

I certainly accept your citations. Hmmmmm. But if Tolkien DID later change his mind, then that might supercede his preceding notions.

It would fit with Trolls being made in mockery of Ents, and the statement in THE HOBBIT regarding trolls being made of stone and such. Why not use the same manufacturing process with orcs?

I must leave it to the more knowing to reconcile the matter!

Please read my fan fiction novel THE HOBBITS.
Wanna hear me read Tolkien? Gilthalion's Grand Adventures!
