Well, there are a few scattered mentions of them... [In reply to] Can't Post

Less so than any other race, I'm afraid.

The Sil does give mention of their creation, and also they figure into the latter story of Beren and Luthien and are casually referenced in the Narn (c)hin Hurin (later compiled into the COH). A small mention at the Nirnaeth Arnoediad is also made.

I also remember a mention of them in UT in the Galadriel and Celeborn chapter.

Of course, HoME has a lot of text, and there are mentions of them throughout, but I cannot recall exactly where. There isn't one great compendium on Dwarves in the published works (as there is for Elves in Volume X), unfortunately. Besides the Woses, Orcs, and other minor peoples, I think the Dwarves are the least developed.

Is there any specific questions you had? Don't hesitate to ask!!!

There is a great dwarf-fan following both on and of ToRN, so you could check them out too, Heirs of Durin is the first that comes to mind. Hope that helps!!!

Call me Rem, and remember, not all who ramble are lost...Uh...where was I?
