"Confusticate and bebother these dwarves!"
Good morning! Welcome to Snow After Fire, the approved fanlisting for J.R.R. Tolkien's first published novel, the book that started the whole genre-defining sensation -- The Hobbit. First published in 1937, The Hobbit tells the story of Bilbo Baggins, a perfectly respectful (if slightly neurotic) hobbit from the Shire, and how he finds himself ears-deep in an unasked-for adventure featuring a wizard, dwarves, trolls, elves, giant spiders, barrels, one very sparkly gem, a magnificent bastard of a dragon, and -- of course -- a most interesting gold ring. If you love this immensely enjoyable story, the one that started it all, please do add your name to the fanlisting!
You are viewing version 1 of Snow After Fire, "The Death of Smaug", featuring artwork by J.R.R. Tolkien himself -- Thror's map, Smaug as he appears on the cover of the first published edition, and a sketch of the ultimate fate of the aforementioned (which is also featured on the cover of my very first copy of The Hobbit, so of course I had to use it in the layout! ♥). It should be viewable and readable on all resolutions, browsers, and devices; but if this is not the case for you, please let me know, and I will attempt to rectify this!
