I haven't Tolkien-geeked in a few days.  Here's a (ahem)  "retellling" of Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" in 1000 words.

Hate to resurrect an old thread (no I don't), but I just stumbled on this thread for the first time. Does anyone know of a similar thing for The Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings triology?

The last few lines of this cover the "Hobbit" and "LotR". But It's got me wondering of anyone has done either book in this way....  That might be fun to try  Grin

Speaking of Tolkien, the single volume 50th anniversary LOTR is really good
