Tolkien

Couldn’t make the post on due time but there’s something that shouldn’t go by without being refered, yesterday, 3rd of January, 124 years ago, was born a man who would change the world of fiction and fantasy in ways that even he probably didn’t imagine. Yes, I’m talking about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (J.R.R. Tolkien for short) and much could be said about the life of this legend – poet, academic, soldier, philologist and father to one of the greatest fantasy tales our time has seen! But all that has been explored already and all I want to say is thank you very much for all you’ve brought us! It has been a great part of my life for many years, your work made my young mind travel through incredible lands and now feels like an old and irreplaceable friend! Thank something that men like this still appear from time to time! ^_^

 

A day late but Happy Birthday! XD
