ICYM: Christopher Tolkien, Rest in Peace



In case you missed: Christopher Tolkien, son of the legendary JRR Tolkien, passed away this week. He was 95. 

One can imagine Christopher laying in bed and falling into a dream world of a lonely mountain, a brave hobbit, and the adventures encountered on an unforgettable journey.

Years later Christopher had his own contribution to his father’s work, as he is known for doing much of the map work for Middle Earth.

Lawsuits and scandals have marred the Tolkien name in the past couple of decades. Still, the loss of Christopher is to lose a close glimpse of the man who made hobbits, orcs, and elves unforgettable.
