A Beleriand Treasury of Childish Tales (And Other Stories)
An ongoing series of fairly unserious pastiches, most of which elaborate details of my more serious stories.  Let me stress the disclaimer on this collection: since some lines will have been taken directly from the originals, I claim responsibility only for the arrangement of these pieces and certainly I own nothing except perhaps for the odd OC.  Feel free to assume that anything really shiny is not mine.  And (of course): go read the originals!
