|MY NEXT BOOK
|A monthly update on my current work in progress.
|The photo on the far left is an image of the edition of The Hobbit that I first read in
1975, though the volume I had read wasn't in as pristine condition as the one
pictured above. I can still recall the smell of the pages from time to time. The two
images center and right are the first volumes I owned of The Lord of the Rings which
I purchased in 1978. The Hobbit was a birthday gift to me from my parents in 1980. I
have a hardcover set as well containing additional books by and about Tolkien.
|An image of the book spine of the edition of
The Hobbit that always caught my eye in my grade
school library whenever I was searching for a book
to read. A cover image of the book is next to it.
|Clarence, a Wheaten Terrier, was the inspiration for the dog
named Magic in The Sword and the Crown and The Saving
Light, parts 2 and 3 in my Endora Trilogy series.
