Title: Ungoliant

This is, appropriately for the season, super creepy! All of Tolkien's scary bits about Ungoliant and her descendants collected in one place really emphasize the horror at which he was so capable, and sprinkled through his writings.

Thanks again for doing all this research and collation!

 



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading this and letting me know. That was a fun one to work on! I'm glad you liked it.

Title: Ungoliant

How fortuitous for the rest of us that you engage in these monthly bouts of research and essay-writing! I always find things I wasn't aware of before in your character bios, in this case, Ungoliant's BoLT history. Am I to understand that, in that version, she and Melkor first became pals when she discovered him squatting on her property? BoLT is one I've never delved into, so I'm always grateful to be served bite-sized bits of it.



Author's Response:

Awww! Thanks! I do look forward to doing these. Although I do wish I could be more disciplined and definitive. I always get started too late and am then in a rush at the end. You pinned me down on this one re the BoLT. I admit I do not know that version very well. IIRC it does use the word "friend"! That version has significant differences with the Silm plot. I should go back and read it more carefully. In my best of all possible worlds, I could always use a few more days on each of these. (But if I had those days, I would start later! I'm incorrigible.)
