I look forward to the posts presenting your paintings, dial-up and all. Yes, I was totally floored when Taerie emailed me and asked if I would like to have it. "We're moving and I thought I'd get rid of some things."

The person selling fic on Ebay is barking up the wrong tree. It's quite illegal to sell fanfic. Fic writers post disclaimers at the heads of their fics (that they are making no money and that the characters and story belong to Tolkien), but I think that technically it's illegal even post fics for free. But most writers or their estates turn a blind eye since it's an expression of love for the original, drums up more readers, and takes nothing away from them financially, etc. But I am sure the Tolkien estate checks around.

I've visited websites that are just doing reference projects or offering essays on Tolkien where they had posted copies of JRRT's watercolours or maps to illustrate their site, which then had been taken down by request of the Tolkien estate. Of course the estate can't police every site out there, but that they saw and spoke to these sites shows me that someone actually is checking.
