    company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey
    ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…

    O avtorju

    -J.R.R. Tolkien-

    J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973) je oče sodobne fantazijske književnosti in skorajda ne potrebuje predstavitve. Rodil se je v Južn Afriki, kjer je njegov oče delal kot vodja banke. Pri treh letih se je z materjo in bratom vrnil v Anglijo, kjer je ostal vse življenje.Že kot mlad je pokazal veselje do starih jezikov, ki ga je zaznamovalo z izbiro poklica. Diplomiral je iz stare norveščine, sodeloval pa je tudi pri pisanju Oxfordovega angleškega slovarja. Poučeval je staro angleščino, obenem pa še vrsto drugih jezikov. A jezike si je tudi izmišljal. Tako je v okviru Srednjega sveta, kamor je postavil vse svoje pripovedi od Hobita in Gospdarja prstanov do Sllmariliona, ustvaril vrsto jezikov in pisav, ki so jih uporabljala tamkajšnja bitja. Poleg fantazijskih del je napisal vrsto znanstvenih razprav, pero pa je uporabil tudi za pisanje pesmi. Leta 1972 je prejel častni naziv komendnik
    Britanskega imperija
    (CBE) in častni doktorat Oxfordske univerze iz književnosti. Umrl je leto kasneje, njegovo literarno zapuščino pa je v upravljanje prevzel njegov najmlajši sin Christopher.
