Welcome to the Green Books of Middle-earth! Not to be confused with the Red Book of Westmarch, we are just pilgrims on the Tolkien trail, exploring the history, people, and events of all the ages of Middle-earth, the Blessed Realm, and the lands that lie beneath the wave. Whether you need to know more about the Elvish languages, find out what new editions of old favorites are coming to market, read in-depth commentary on Tolkien’s thematic elements, or peruse fan-submitted original works or humor, Ostadan, Turgon, Quickbeam, Anwyn, and Tookish have a little something for everyone. In addition, Green Books is home to the overwhelmingly popular Questions & Answers. If you have a Tolkien question, conundrum, wonderment, or puzzler, the Green Books staff will rise to your challenge.

Allow me to share my perspectives with you. But remember, things seem a bit different from where I sit. The air is a little thinner up here, after all.

Ostadan's Lore & Letters

Presenting in-depth exploration of Tolkien's remarkable legendarium, histories, and a few more things you may not know!
