Story Summary

Set in Minas Tirith, Minas Ithil and Mordor, nearly 50 years after the Ringwars, Goswedriol, the bastard son of Gandalf, teams up with Goldberry to investigate the frightful murder of Morfindel, the King's Favourite and arch wheeler-dealer, treading on toes all the way. JRR Tolkien Meets James Bond and Agatha Christie. Crime thriller, whodunnit, bestseller, superficially satire, but with some angst & mystery, extends canon but avoids bending it. Canonical characters are faithfully portrayed (sic!) or fleshed-out.

Who Knackered Aragorn's Catamite?

terrific story! I fully enjoyed this very different sort of story. Full of action and mystery, I must admit, I had no idea whodunnit till it was revealed. There were suspicions everywhere and you threw enough around that it could have been anyone. The unusual cast of characters made it even more entertaining: pleasant and charming Orcs, a bald Goldberry, and a fierce and fearsome Elandrine! Goss was the best, though, and you fully deserved your award for best original character. Well done!
