So, tonight's my first lecture to the Mythgard Institute's HOBBIT course, at 6.30 Pacific Time (9.30 East Coast time zone). I'll be talking about the origins of The Hobbit.
The second lecture comes on Thursday (Sept 27th; same time), when I talk about Tolkien's outlines for The Hobbit and the different directions the story might have taken.
Looks like a good group and a good course; here's hoping the lecture itself goes well.
