I had a burst of activity over at BlackGate.com. One post took an in depth look at one of Tolkien’s magic swords from The Silmarillion. If you’re not familiar with the history of Anglachel, you need to click on over and check it out.
The Silmarillion is a fascinating collection of epic stories that weave in and out of the history of Middle Earth. It can be a tough read, but there’s a lot of great stuff in it.
