GDT praises Torn in Time Magazine! Can't Post

This month's "Short List" feature, which is always at the end of every Time magazine edition, features Guillermo del Toro's list of "things he likes to bite into during his spare time".

One of them is listed as "Tolkien online", to wit:



Quote

TheOneRing.net is a great community where intelligent, articulate dissenters argue about fascinating minutiae--and not just about fantasy.




Wow.

Thanks, Mr. del Toro!

Yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

When he has the time, he joins in on our Hobbit board. He can't discuss everything with us but he does like to drop the occasional tidbit about how things are going with the Hobbit pre-production and to discuss filmmaking and mythology in general. We love hearing from him, of course, so it's nice to know he enjoys talking with us too.

Welcome to TORN, by the way. We're glad to have you here. Smile
