Fimi/Honegger (ed.), Sub-creating Arda (5/3)

Walking Tree, 2019. 1st edition. Paperback. Cover by Jay Johnstone.

J.R.R. Tolkien's literary cosmos may not be the most elaborate of the imaginary worlds in existence, it is certainly the most influential. The posthumous editorial work of Tolkien's son Christopher has also shown that Arda remains unrivalled in its consistency and complexity. Additionally, the re-publication of Tolkien's Andrew Lang lecture 'On Fairy-stories' (originally delivered 1939) and its interpretation within the discourse of literary fantasy has further strengthened his position as one of the foremost proponents of literary world-building or, as he himself preferred to call it, (literary) subcreation.

The contributions to this volume by Tom Shippey, John Garth, Mark J.P. Wolf, Kristine Larsen, Andrew Higgins, Allan Turner, Gergely Nagy, Renée Vink, and a dozen other scholars, discuss not only Tolkien's theoretical concepts as well as his literary work but also explore the relationship between Tolkien’s approach with that of other 'literary world-builders' whose imaginary worlds have attracted readers and scholars alike. *

Kees Paling, A Rumour of Adventure (1/2)

An Inklings Story

Leipzig, 2019. 1st edition. Paperback.*

Four Inklings - Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and Owen Barfield - go on a walking tour together during four days in May, 1938. They walk in the footsteps of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge through the Quantock Hills in Somerset and into Exmoor. They walk and talk with rucksacks on their backs, rain or shine, up- and downhill, through forests and moorland, smoking their pipes and drinking their beer. Never missing a pub. Tolkien has the first chapters of 'The Next Hobbit' (later: Lord of the Rings) on his mind, C.S. Lewis is halfway his science fiction trilogy, Charles Williams works on a poem about the Arthurian Legends and Owen Barfield studies the concept of Metaphor. It's 1938 and dark shadows grow in the East. What do they talk about and what happens on the way?Based on biographies of The Inklings and the individual authors, their books, letters and diaries, this is an enchanting tale about the long-lasting friendship between the (sub)creators of modern myths and fantasy. You are witness to their conversations, you feel their fatigue when they reach a hilltop and you enjoy their humour and wit. It's almost as if you participate in their journey. And of course - in a way - you do. For as long as you read, the spell isn't broken and the magic is there for you to experience. May I invite you to a special walking tour?

Smaug Crystal Wrap necklace

Inspired by the fantasy epic The Hobbit this Smaug crystal wrap necklace was created.  Smaug, one of the last great dragons of Middle-earth, wraps around a faceted natural quartz crystal.  Since the crystals we use are genuine, they will have naturally occurring inclusions.  Each crystal will vary in character and appearance.  The ancient Japanese thought that quartz crystals were formed by dragons breath.  The dragon necklace is skillfully crafted of sterling silver.  Each pendant is carefully hand finished and inspected for the highest quality.  

Depending on the length of the crystal, the dragon pendant measures approximately 33.4 mm to 36.4 mm (1 5/16" to 1 7/16") long.  The pendant measures approximately 15.3 mm (5/16") wide and 12 mm (1/2") thick.  The necklace weighs approximately 4.5 grams in sterling silver.  The crystal weighs approximately 2.2 grams by itself. Comes with a chain and a jewelry box.*

Gamling 1/6 scale (5/12)

 

A soldier of Rohan in King Théoden's royal guard, Gamling was sworn to protect the throne, but the loyal warrior's allegiances were tested when Gandalf the White and his companions came to Edoras to seek audience with the king. Ailing and in the sway of Gríma Wormtongue, Théoden was not himself.

When Wormtongue's men drew blades against the guests and the Wizard advanced upon the undefended king, Gamling was moved to intervene, but his sword was stayed by fellow guard Háma, who perceived Gandalf's true intentions. Thanks to the Wizard's help, Théoden and the land of Rohan were both freed from the corrupt counselor's grip.

With new purpose, King Théoden rallied the Rohirrim and led them to Helm's Deep, a mighty fortress of stone built into the White Mountains. Gamling rode with his king and fought ever at his side, surviving both the perilous journey to the Deep and the fearsome siege brought against them there by the fallen Wizard Saruman.

Gamling is brought to you by sculptor Gary Hunt, an accomplished artist who is one of Weta Workshop's longest-serving crew members, being part of the original Lord of the Rings crew.

Product size: 27 x 37 x 17 cm. Limited to 375 copies.*

Royal Guard of Rohan 1/6 scale

 

Calling upon those who dwelt upon the plains in scattered hamlets, farms and outlying villages, the kingdom of Rohan could muster a grand army of riders in times of great need, but few among the defenders bore arms every day.

Farmers, herders, trade and craftsmen, most led lives of quiet, tending to their work to feed their families. Yet even in times of peace and plenty the kings of Rohan also maintained a standing force of dedicated royal guards to protect the throne and other vital sites within the realm.

Unlike the plainsmen, who brought and cared for their own arms when called, Rohan's royal guards were provisioned by the king and wore uniforms marking their station. Standing at attention outside the Golden Hall, they were clad in hauberks of scaled mail, with girded swords, broad pauldrons, cloaks of royal green, and tall helms that gleamed beneath a bright sky.

Rohan Royal Guard is brought to you by sculptor Gary Hunt, an accomplished artist who is one of Weta Workshop's longest-serving crew members, being part of the original Lord of the Rings crew.

The Fall of Gondolin Large Print Edition

 

HarperCollins, 2018. 1st edition. Paperback. Illustrated in b&w by Alan Lee.*

In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world. There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manwë, chief of the Valar.

Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable. It was built and peopled by Noldorin Elves who, when they dwelt in Valinor, the land of the gods, rebelled against their rule and fled to Middle-earth. Turgon King of Gondolin is hated and feared above all his enemies by Morgoth, who seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city, while the gods in Valinor in heated debate largely refuse to intervene in support of Ulmo's desires and designs.

Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of Túrin, the instrument of Ulmo's designs. Guided unseen by him Tuor sets out from the land of his birth on the fearful journey to Gondolin, and in one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth the sea-god himself appears to him, rising out of the ocean in the midst of a storm. In Gondolin he becomes great; he is wedded to Idril, Turgon's daughter, and their son is Eärendel, whose birth and profound importance in days to come is foreseen by Ulmo.

At last comes the terrible ending. Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs. After a minutely observed account of the fall of Gondolin, the tale ends with the escape of Tuor and Idril, with the child Eärendel, looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city. They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Eärendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources.

Following his presentation of Beren and Lúthien Christopher Tolkien has used the same 'history in sequence' mode in the writing of this edition of The Fall of Gondolin. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, it was ‘the first real story of this imaginary world’ and, together with Beren and Lúthien and The Children of Húrin, he regarded it as one of the three 'Great Tales' of the Elder Days.*

The City of Corsairs Adventure Pack

The City of Corsairs is the thrilling conclusion to the Dream-chaser cycle of Adventure Packs for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game! Its new scenario grants your heroes the opportunity to board the Dream-chaser one last time, set sail for the lands of Umbar, and conclude your business with the Corsairs once and for all. But will you truly be ready for the dangers that await you? Featuring not one, but two new encounter sets, The City of Corsairs challenges you to navigate Umbar's coastal waters and battle past Corsair Ships before you set foot on land to pursue the Númenorean artifact that was stolen from you. Don't expect this task to be easy, though! In their lands, the Corsairs you'll face are deadlier than ever, and the Númenorean artifact grants them a strange and corrupting power.

Fortunately, you don't have to undertake this journey alone. Not only does The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game allow you to adventure with up to as many as three of your friends, but it allows you to fill your deck with numerous allies and as many as three heroes. And you find new options for both within The City of Corsairs, including a host of Gondor allies and one of the noblest and most notable names in The Lord of the Rings, Prince Imrahil, who arrives as a Tactics hero, ready for battle.

Contains cards 138-165 of the Dream-chaser cycle. The core set and The Grey Havens deluxe expansion are required to play.*
