  1. Summary

    "Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", Arda edition. Just slightly off-canon, assuming that canon is mostly Elven-written: with rockets to the Void, prosthetics and wheelchairs, mechanical dragons, surgery canonized as shape-shifting, nuclear energy of the Silima...

    (The stories do not need to be read in order, though And the Void Will Be Ours is a sort of introduction/summary).

  2. Summary

    The War of the Ring is over, and the surviving Orcs are doing their best to survive in the lands that are trying to recover after the War, but have collectively decided to ignore the losing side.

    A 4th Age sequel to Arda Forged, though can certainly be read separately.

    One night shortly after his arrival in King's Landing Oberyn is approached in the gardens by a stranger, hooded and cloaked. When she asks him to help her die, he takes her back to Dorne instead. Taking her to safety is easy enough; keeping her safe is a different matter.

    Summary

    Life in Fourth Age Valinor is good for Celebrimbor. He has his students, he has his projects, and if life is a little less exciting than it was in Middle-earth, that’s probably for the best, right? So when a series of events conspires to bring Sauron the Dark Lord back into all of their lives, he must decide if he will help him regain his memories or if some things are better left in the past.

    Summary

    "Many's the talk I had with [Bilbo] when I was a little lad" Sam Gamgee says, and then much later: "I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales...you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book."

    So here is young Sam Gamgee hearing far-off tales of Elves, Bilbo Baggins, trying to piece together the tale of the Silmarils for the first time, Frodo Baggins being a wild young mushroom-stealing tearaway who matures into an earnest scholar, and Merry Brandybuck and Sam Gamgee getting started on their great Conspiracy.
