My Favourite Tolkien Links

Here are my favourite links to some both well and little known sites, which I have found very helpful both as sources of inspiration and information.

The Encyclopedia of Arda, is an essential site for any fanfic writer,an invaluable reference guide to everyone and everything mentioned in Tolkien's works.

The Thain's Book -
An encyclopedia of Middle-earth in the Third Age divided into detailed sections on People,Places, Things, Creatures and Events.

Mythic Truth -

This is a very interesting and detailed site about Catholic influences in "Lord of the Rings".

Highly recommended, it greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the book as well as giving me ideas to help me with writing my stories.

Talking about Tolkien -

An interesting site with lots of photos of Tolkien and info about his work. It is being compiled for Chinese fans but is in English too.

It even tells you what lines from the book found their way into the films and has the timeline,useful if your copy of LOTR Is in another room while writing a fanfic.
There are also links to audio and video of the Professor.
