First published in 1969, the New York Timesbestseller Bored of the Ringsis backand just in time for the major motion picture release of The Hobbit. This classic parody of J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional universe is a timeless comedic masterpiece. Bored of the Ringswas an instant sensation when it was originally published by Signet in 1969 and is considered the standard by which all other parodies are measured. A send-up of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy, Bored of the Ringsis as fresh and hilarious as ever. Following Frido (Frodo), Dildo (Bilbo), Goddamn (Gollum), Goodgulf (Gandalf), Arrowroot (Aragorn), and more, Bored of the Ringsis the wildest, wackiest, most irreverent excursion into fantasy realms that anyone has ever dared to undertake. An out-of-print treasure, it will appeal to a broad range of readersfrom newly minted Tolkien geeks to nostalgic boomers, who first read it in the late 60s and 70s. Now with a hilarious new Foreword, Bored of the Ringsis an "all-in-one-volume" parody extravaganza and the perfect holiday gift for lovers and haters of Tolkien alike.
