Author of the Month And his Bestsellers

John Ronald Reuel "J. R. R." Tolkien Born John Ronald Reuel, J R R Tolkien was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor who is best known as the author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord Of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.

Tolkien created a legendarium, a fictional mythology about the remote past of Earth, of which Middle-earth in particular is the main stage. Parts of his legendarium are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Silmarillion and The History of Middle-earth series (published by his son, Christopher Tolkien, posthumously) revealed Tolkien’s lifelong work on that same legendarium, a process which he called “sub-creation”. Tolkien’s other published works includes philological essays, modern adaptations of medieval literature and rendering of stories originally told to his children but not directly related to the legendarium.

What people say?


Excellent service, better than Amazon.

All of the books arrived safely and in excellent time with postie. As I ordered a few the postage was free. All of this and the Highland Bookshop also benefits. Will definitely be using this service instead of Amazon for books in future.
