Enter Mirkwood, the Great Forest of Doubt.

Bold new author Steve Hillard's wildly original debut, Mirkwood, reinvents J. R. R. Tolkien as a man haunted by the very myths he rewove into his famous works. As much literary criticism as boisterous epic, this episodically driven plot explores the blurred borderlands where ancient tales, lost heroines, and epic journeys are stalked by dim monsters that will not be still. In 1970, Professor Tolkien makes a little-known visit to America - and sets in motion elvish powers embodied in a cache of archaic documents. Destinies are altered, legends become real, and two heroines must race for their lives in vastly different worlds. 

This is a work of fiction which is neither endorsed by nor connected with the J. R. R. Tolkien estate or its publisher.
