Good friend John Rateliff, known more often in these pages as Sacnoth* has won a Mythopoeic Award for his magnum opus, The History of the Hobbit, which is divided into two books: Mr. Baggins, and Return to Bag End (Also available as a set with the original The Hobbit).

Here's his announcement and acceptance speech.

Huzzah for Mr. Baggins!

* And yeah, Sacnoth Valley in Eye of the North? That's where the name comes from. Though originally it's from Lord Dunsany.
