Today was the father of fantasy JRR Tolkiens Birthday, he was born January 3rd, 1892 in Bloemfontein South Africa. In honor of his Birthday I wrote a Tolkeinesque Fable, The Archer, the Horse & the Princess. This story can be found in my collection fairy stories called The Wonder Tales which can be viewed by clicking here.
The Archer story was an adaptation of a fairy tale told to me by my Grandfather when I was a young boy. Half remembered, retold, and re imagined by me in honor JRR Tolkien. Remember there are no new stories anymore, just different ways of telling them. Thank you JRR Tolkien for opening my eyes to a whole new world.
