“We can cast our own shadows out on to the other islands, if we like. It’s a good and lawful form of invention; but an invention it is and proceeds out of Earth, the Talkative Planet. The only hnau ever to dwell in red Gormok or in cloud-bright Zingil will be put there by us.”
— Michael George Ramer, in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Notion Club Papers.
