We are delighted to welcome Carl Hostetter to The Tolkien Road!
Carl is the editor of the forthcoming book The Nature of Middle-earth, the latest collection of previously unpublished writings from JRR Tolkien.
This was a wide-ranging discussion! We covered topics like Tolkien’s final word on the length of Valian Years, Elrond’s “Man-equivalent” age, Carl’s involvement in the study of Quenya and Sindarin, how he came to write this book, and so much more!
Be sure to check out the patron-only bonus discussion we had with Carl, in which we discuss his views of Peter Jackson’s films, what he’s expecting from LOTR on Prime, and his opinion on the ever-controversial question of Tolkien and religion.
