Seventy Years Young!

On this day in 1937, The Hobbit was first released to the public.

Given that J.R.R. Tolkien was notedly anti-technology, I wonder what he would have thought if he'd been told that that his humble little story would someday spawn countless terabytes of online Elvish fanfic.

LATE-BREAKING NEWS: Apparently, scientists have discovered fossilized Hobbit remains. Funny. I thought they'd be taller.

Only fairly recently. I sent away for a kit I saw advertised in the back of a magazine!
