Author has written 1 story for Lord of the Rings.
In the Elder Days (1976, to be exact) I read and became ensnared by the Lord of the Rings books, and when the movies came out I fell into Middle-earth again. Thus far I have not been able to find my way out. This being the case, I thought it might calm my fascination with a particular blond Elf if I wrote my fantasies down and created stories. But things have only worsened. Now I am here.
I will do my best to stay within the boundaries Tolkien set and stick to canon. If I stray, please let me know. I like to write adventure/danger tales that challenge our heroes both physically and psychologically. It is unlikely that you will find slash or romance here.
Feel free to follow my favorites list for some superb reading. As you do, remember to acknowledge J.R.R. Tolkien, who created this world in which we are playing so happily. And if you have not yet done so, please read his books.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my stories.
5/22/07: Last Thursday, on May 17, the world of children's literature lost one of its greatest writers. Lloyd Alexander was the author of the five-book fantasy series known as The Chronicles of Prydain. The final book, The High King, won the Newbery Medal in 1969.
These stories are regarded by many as the gold standard in the genre of children's fantasy, and I feel confident that readers who love Tolkien will love Lloyd Alexander too. No author influenced my childhood more, and as an adult I continue to adore him and make the time to re-read the Prydain series annually. His influence on me was tremendous, and in truth, were it not for him, I never would have picked up a pen and begun my own tales. I was writing Prydain fanfic in 1970, my dears.
A sample of his quality: "There is much to be known, and above all much to be loved, be it in the turn of the seasons or the shape of a river pebble. Indeed, the more we find to love, the more we add to the measure of our hearts."
The Book of Three, The Black Cauldron, The Castle of Llyr, Taran Wanderer, The High King. Please seek them out if you wish to read the best.
July 2017, dearest friends, I am terminally ill with ovarian cancer. Regrettably, TSAW will not be completed. Writing this story has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I hope it gave you pleasure too. With much love, Nightwing.
