John Z. emailed me about an interesting little bit of news regarding author Arthur C. Clarke (2001, Rendezvous with Rama). It seems that he has been interviewed for a radio program and will reveal “reveal the origin of hobbits, as told to him by J.R.R. Tolkien himself”. To read more, CLICK HERE. Or, to check for the archived radio program (once it’s archived–just check March 24), CLICK HERE.
UPDATE: Ok, don’t go expecting a major revelation, but a humourous little statement Tolkien made… to read the brief instead of listening to the (rather interesting) interview with Arthur C. Clarke, CLICK HERE.
