The fourth ghost

"I am the ghost of Christmas Future Perfect Subjunctive: I will show you what would have happened were you not to have changed your ways!"

Heeeee...

I am nearly caught up on mini_fest, planning to work my way through sshg_giftfest over the weekend (some lovely stories over there, go see!), and eagerly anticipating the opening of hoggywartyxmas in just a few days.

This weekend I hope to also get books shipped out to everyone who claimed one in the Great Book Giveaway of 2014. Still a few left for you last-minute shoppers!

I am embarking on a nice, leisurely reread of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rgins Rings ('rgins' heh heh) as my holiday read. It's been a few years since I did this, and I can feel that it's time again. "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit..."

Intriguing, and very plausible. Have you read Kirill Yeskov's The Last Ringbearer? Though a somewhat atrocious translation from the Russian (at least the version I read was), the author's more geography-based approach to the story and his recasting of the orcs and the Southrons as unwilling invaders who would really rather be back home, offers yet another slant on the War of the Ring. Salon.com posted an essay by the author (much better translated than the book!) about why he chose to write it.

I know of it and it's basic themes (after I wrote my article) but haven't read it.
