A letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to illustrator Doris Sykes will be sold by Hermitage Fine Art Monaco for £15,000 ($25,0000).
On September 2, 1973 J. R. R. Tolkien was given the gift that is to be given to all men as he passed beyond the sea and past the barriers of this Middle-earth to the arms of Eru. As men, it is our hope and our prayer that we shall all meet him there someday.–Jonathan and Ted and The One Ring Team
I have started a thread on the messageboard under The Man. I have asked a couple questions about how Tolkien has effected you as a person. Go there and participate in the dialogue.
Cool Stuff for Fans!
