my copy of "Black & White Ogre Country" has arrived! Can't Post

We discussed it here in the RR in January, and I went ahead and ordered a copy. It is quite charming! I haven't read it yet, but it is fully illustrated in color, and there is a short biographical chapter at the end which has a few pictures I have never seen, specifically of the two brothers together as adults and a CHARMING one of them as children. There is also a brief extract from a letter which JRR wrote to Hilary in 1971.

There are also a couple of copies of pages from Hilary Tolkien's notebooks, including his original illustrations for the ogres. I am looking forward to reading it and will send a review later.

I ordered it direct from ADC Publications (see previous thread), but I see it's also available through Amazon UK.

Now I am so looking forward to the biography of Hilary Tolkien!

"an seileachan"

Some say once you're gone, you're gone forever, and some say you're gonna come back.
Some say you'll rest in the arms of the Savior, if sinful ways you lack.
Some say that they're coming back in a garden: bunch of carrots and little sweet peas.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.
