This holiday season, I am closing out the year with a countdown of my top ten posts of the year!
For 2019, the number three post was: An Open Letter to Christopher Tolkien on His 95th Birthday
Christopher Tolkien turned ninety-five on November 21 of this year. Since it was a birthday of special magnificence, I took the opportunity to write him an open letter.
I would like to say happy birthday and sincerely thank you for all you have done to shape our understanding of your father’s work, of fantasy writing, of the creative process, and of Old English texts.
Be sure to go see the post to read the whole letter!
