The Lord Of The Grins
By Mark Egginton
Sourone, the Dank lord of Bad-Odour, is on a mission to reclaim his lost nose ring from his Goth days. To prevent this, stage magician and estate agent, The Grand Alf, enlists the help of several half-witted Halfbits, a drunken Elf, a smelly Dwarf with a fake beard, and two men with the intellect of a single shop dummy between them. No wonder people are fleeing to the Uncrying Lands.
Mark Egginton has lived and breathed The Lord of the Rings for decades (he literally has a copy of the book stuck to his face). His love and knowledge of it has been poured into this parody in a truly unique way. Quick wit and sharp humour will accompany you on this quest to Mount Gloom.
Mark Egginton has been reading Fantasy from a tender age, which went to fill in his visual understanding of the world – If Aslan could talk, surely all lions could! In 1970 he discovered Tolkien, a tremendous influence in his life and the inspiration behind The Lord of the Grins.
