Making a website about Tolkien was (and is) a great way to share your passion about Tolkien books; It creates a path to make new friends, meet interesting people on the road. Now it also seems it can put you in the spotlight! When I received the e-mail that I (Pieter Collier from TolkienLibrary.com) had been nominated for an award I was absolutely stunned. The awards would cite the accomplishments of 1 individual in each of 3 categories, Tolkien/Inklings Scholarship, Tolkien/Inklings Fan Appreciation and Tolkien/Inklings Inspired Creativity. Looking at the names of the other nominated Tolkien fans I never suspected to win. Never did I realize that my solo-project was appreciated by so many. Today I'm very proud to announce that I won the Imperishable Flame Award for Tolkien/Inklings Fan Appreciation!

Thank you, everyone, for your encouragement and kindness (and the many, many votes) - you'll never know how much your support means to me! Congratulations also to Dr. Amy H. Sturgis and Glass Hammer. They are well deserving of this honor.

For years Dr. Richard Purtill lived two lives: by day, professor of philosophy; by night, he wrote fantasy and science fiction books. Weekdays he lectured in classrooms; weekends he attended fantasy conventions. When he retired from his day job, he found more time to write, eventually publishing over twenty books. The professor is probably best known for his two bestsellers published by Ignatius Press: J.R.R. Tolkien: Myth, Morality & Religion and C.S. Lewis’ Case for the Christian Faith.

Here I will review J.R.R. Tolkien: Myth, Morality & Religion, for which he received the Mythopoeic Scholarship Award (Inklings Studies) in 1987.

Inside the little book Oxford Poetry 1915 we can find one of Tolkien's early "fairy" poetry, a poem which achieved great popularity and was reprinted many times in various collections of children’s poetry: "Goblin Feet".

The poem "Goblin Feet" was written in a very hard period in Tolkien's life.
