The Road to Middle-earth: How J. R. R. Tolkien Created a New Mythology
The Road to Middle-earth: How J. R. R. Tolkien Created a New Mythology
by T. A. Shippey
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing insights, 1 July 2012
Tom Shippey is one of the pre-eminent Tolkien scholars out there. This book is a fascinating exploration of the creative process and story behind on of my favourite books. From the eldar Edda to Shakespeare, and a skewering of the critics who malign Tolkien's writing, this is a scholarly, but riveting read.

Price: 14.57

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% excellent, 27 Jun 2012
This review is from: 100% (Audio CD)
If you've missed 555%, which is the pledge-only project by Ginger Wildheart, featuring 30 of the best tracks he's ever written, then the next best thing you can do is buy 100%. These are the 12 best songs from 555% as chosen by the people who pledged from it. From the perfect pop rock of Forget About It, the country funk of Another Spinning F**king Rainbow, the outstanding Lover It'll All Work out, and the epic Time, there isn't a weak track here.

This is certainly the best solo album that Ginger has produced, and stands up with the best of the Wildhearts. I can't recommend this enough.
