NYT: New Zealand's Hobbit Trail Years ago, back when I had a day job, I went to New Zealand with a friend and among all the other touring, we did one of the tours that took you to some of the sites that had been used in Lord of the Rings around Queenstown. It was gorgeous. When we were in Auckland, she actually went to Hobbiton, but it was a really long bus ride, so I stayed in the city with friends and we went to the zoo, and did some shopping, and accidentally found the store owned by the weavers who did the cloaks and some other weaving for the movie.
New Kindle novella from fantasy writer Robin Wayne Bailey: Payday
Davy sensed something in the air that night when he and his lover, Jake, left the bar. Something in the wind. Something wrong. Yet, with Jake at his side, he felt safe, loved, and protected.
Four teenagers armed with baseball bats and crowbars changed all that. Now, Davy lies paralyzed in a hospital, Jake lies dead, and a gang of spoiled boys think they're home free. They couldn't be more wrong. When innocent blood is spilled, there will be Hell to Pay.
