      elcome to the Ring Lord J.R.R. Tolkien site. This page is dedicated to the books, characters and world he created. J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion are some of the greatest books ever written. The Lord of the Rings is considered by many to be the book of the 20th century. It is a masterpiece about a world of magic, epic battles, fierce creatures, wizards, elves, dwarves, hobbits, men, orcs, goblins, dragons, and of course the Dark Lord. Tolkien's Middle Earth is so rich and so deep that you find yourself transported into the pages and bare witness to the epic struggles of good verses evil. "He is a great enough magician to tap our most common nightmares, daydreams and twilight fancies...Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams..." -Peter S. Beagle, on J.R.R. Tolkien (1973)

       ver 50 million copies of the book have been sold worldwide. It brings a sense of imagination to all that read it. "The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and those who are going to read them." -Sunday Times. The Hobbit was written in 1936, and The Lord of the Rings was written in 1948. After over half a century these timeless books have given people of all ages a world to get lost in. J.R.R. Tolkien died in 1973 at the age of eighty-one, but his stories and magic live on forever.
