Christopher Tolkien has Died

Christopher Tolkien has died at the age of 95:

Many thanks to him for bringing the Silmarillion out into the light of day, and inspiring Angband. May he go on to whatever Eru Iluvatar had planned for Man when we move beyond Middle Earth.

He looked more like 70 rather than 95.
Maybe fantasy keeps you young.

I am enormously grateful to him for publishing all his JRRT's works. My favourite is "Of Tuor and his coming to Gondolin", published in Unfinished Tales. Amazing that he spent 40-odd years of his life ensuring that his father's legacy would be appreciated in a way that would have pleased him.

I'd say he died of ripe old age and is flagged as a winner.
