Author has written 36 stories for Lord of the Rings.3/1: Still posting "Small and Passing Thing" (long story). Also adding chapters to "Runaway", which will be posted in its entirety (35 chapters) before the end of March. Have begun posting "Shire". Three stories at once? you say. Yes. You have the right of it.
11/8: Have begun posting "A Small and Passing Thing", the sequel to "The Rebel". Alert reader Bob noticed that Meliloc Brandybuck was "Melilot" in the ff.net version of "Down and Out". Correction has now been made. Think what you like... either he's Melilot's twin brother, or there's a coincidence of names (as in "Merimac" and "Merimas"). It is important to get Meliloc straight as he will be appearing in "Solid Ground", a story to be posted sometime in the near future, I hope. If you happen to miss any mentions of Melilot where it ought to read "Meliloc" please drop me a line. It is more complicated because I am also using Melilot now as a character in several stories.

If a story appears on the list but is not available at ff.net, it is in progress, outlined and awaiting writing at the very least.
