Christopher Tolkien, the youngest son of J.R.R Tolkien (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings author) has passed away.

Christopher was 95 years old, and was the literary executor for his father.

Sad news. I just started the Lord of the Rings for the umpteenth time just two days ago.

J. R. R. Tolkien was born in 1892 -- he'd be 127 if he were still with us. That seems so crazy to me.
