I had read a book a while back called "Edge of Eternity" by Randy Alcorn. It is a Christian allegory, much like Pilgram's Progess. In the acknoldgements he gives a note of thanks to Tolkien and to Lewis for his inspiration for that book.

Also, in another book by the same author, called Lord Foulgrin's Letter, remincent of Lewis's Screwtape Letters, he us a language silmilar to Tolkien's Black Speech for the demons. Also, once a demon used the "Ancient" language, that of Heaven, which was similar to Sindarin.

Here is one example: Black Speech
Quote:
Baal jezeb ashnar mordol nuhl-keez gimbus molech nargul dazg.
and here is one more: Sindarin
Quote:
Elyon miriel o aeron galad--chara domina beth charis o aleathes celebron.
I emailed their office to see if someone could tell me the interpretation, as it is not stated in the book.

Dunno if you can call this homage to LOTR... but I've reieved via e-mail this errrrmm... politcal cartoon, I suppose. It was labelled as something like "this explains it all, he is back." I was just a pic of George W Bush... exept that there was a zoom to his wedding ring and it clearly had writing in feanorian runes [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

That is quite funny, bombur, and there is a thread devoted to it:

I know this is going back right to the top of this thread - and your probably not talking about it any more - but also in A Wizard of Earthsea they use the name 'Lebbinin' for one of the characters (lebbinin is lotr is somewhere in Gondor)

Thanks estelyn... I had thought it had less of circulation. The name of the thread is perhaps slightly deceptive though...
