The Night Tolkien Died
Random House, 1994
The first anthology of short stories to be acknowledged by the Children’s Book Council of Australia as an Honour book, The Night Tolkien Died presents a range of short fiction by an author who takes the genre seriously. While the characters deal with a variety of challenges, the style and voice of the stories change, to suit the theme.
Although this edition is out of print, six of these award-wining stories are included in the anthology Listening to Mondrian (Allen & Unwin, 2006).
