Could you not make an exception?” Frodo pleaded, gazing earnestly at the man behind the desk.

“I’m sorry, Mr Baggins, but in the current economic climate we cannot afford to take any risks.” He pushed the thick manuscript away.

“But this is the story of how Middle-earth was saved. It needs to be told.”

“Goodbye, Mr Baggins.” The publisher rose to his feet, indicating the interview was over. “Do please accept our hospitality before you return home. I’m sorry we cannot publish your book, but a tale about Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves, heroic Men, and a magic Ring would never sell.”
