Beware The Dawn
I’ve been slowly making my way through Tolkien’s Ring trilogy. This is for the second time – I read it once before, in the mid-’90s, and didn’t get that much out of it that time. I’m enjoying it more now. That said, the focus on all the ‘hero’ characters did get me to wonder about the ‘non-hero’ pople who live in its world, whom we never really get to see. And this is a common issue with high fantasy – a lot of minor or even non-characters who are just there to be Orc-fodder.
So this picture is about them – the people for whom sunrise probably isn’t good news.
