I’m pleased to announce that I have resumed my Tolkien Correspondent duties, this time for the venerable science fiction and fantasy publisher Tor.com. If you worried that my career of yelling about elves and hobbits ended with The Toast, fear not!
My latest dispatch from Middle-earth seeks to answer mankind’s most pressing question: who would win in a fight, the dragon Smaug or the Balrog Durin’s Bane? The answer will surprise you. Or not. I don’t know how you think, okay.
Read and decide for yourself!
